1 May 2017: Sydney's newest international hotel, The Tank Stream, is offering visitors to Sydney an opportunity to combine contemporary comfort with a new two night accommodation package that includes a historical discovery tour that traces the path of the city's original life-source, the Tank Stream.

When the First Fleet arrived in 1788, it was meant to have established the colony at Botany Bay, but the lack of fresh water saw Captain Arthur Phillip move the fleet around to Sydney Cove, where they discovered a fresh water stream – and the city of Sydney was born.

The stream in those days was open, running from a swamp in Hyde Park, down through waterfalls across Bridge Street then out to what is now Circular Quay. Tanks were established to capture the water, leading to its name, the Tank Stream.




The Tank Stream is now fully covered, but a Tank Stream & Hidden Laneways tour – conducted by small-group tour specialists Go Local Tours – provides visitors the opportunity to retrace its path covering the city's infamous start as a penal colony, the beautiful sandstone architecture, and the colourful stories behind the laneways that lead from Martin Place down to Sydney Harbour.

The Winter Walk The Tank Stream package includes two nights in a Superior Queen Room at the Tank Stream Hotel, complimentary upgrade to next room type (subject to availability), breakfast for two at Le Petit Flot Restaurant, free wifi, in-room movies and mini bar items (non alcoholic), and a Tank Stream & Hidden Laneways Tour for two. The package is available from $479 (double/twin), a saving of 25% off full rates. Bookings via: www.tankstreamhotel.com (Promotional code Winterwalk17). The package is valid till 31 August 2017. Conditions apply.




The 4.5 star Tank Stream Hotel is located above the Tank Stream and is one of Sydney's best located hotels, just a short walk from the Sydney Opera House, Circular Quay, Hyde Park, The Rocks and Barangaroo, and just a short walk to trains, buses and ferries.

A perfect base for short and longer stays in Sydney, the Tank Stream Hotel is surrounded by many of city's most celebrated restaurants, theatres, entertainment venues and boutiques.

The hotel's restaurant Le Petit Flot offers relaxed contemporary bistro style dining with an emphasis on share plates and local produce, and a laneway cafe provides an ideal spot to catch the vibrancy of the city over a coffee or glass of wine. The hotel can also arrange discounted access to nearby fitness centres and parking.

The Tank Stream Hotel is part of the international St Giles Premier Hotel collection, with the Sydney hotel joining other St Giles' hotels in cities such as London, New York, Kuala Lumpur and Manila.
