Meet our Hosts

Justin

Justin is originally from Brisbane but has lived in Sydney for over 8 years now. He moved here to start a career in corporate law, but luckily escaped that path and started Local Sauce Tours.

Justin is the main host for the Hidden Sydney walking tour, the Secret Bar Crawl and the Chinatown and Newtown food tours. He also came up with routes, stories and built relationships with the bars and restaurants that all tours go to, so if you have any questions or feedback, he’s the guy to speak to.

An avid traveller, Justin has backpacked around South America, Europe and Asia, visiting around 40 countries. He speaks fluent Mandarin and enough French to confuse a French person.

Eddie

Hailing from the mid-north coast of New South Wales, Eddie moved to the “big smoke” of Sydney after uni and hasn’t looked back.

An environmental scientist during the week, on the weekends Eddie lets loose, pulls out a fun Hawaiian shirt and leads our Secret Bar Crawls. He also leads some of the Newtown Chewtown tours.

In his spare time, Eddie likes to pretend he is the Crocodile Hunter (ask him to show you his snake photos) or go on a bit of a walk-about, camping, bushwalking and fishing his way through nearby National Parks. He’s also known for his strong resemblance to Eric Bana and is happy to pose for photos. Eddie can also speak Mandarin and studied in Nanjing.

Kieran

We discovered Kieran busking in Chinatown one day, singing Mando Pop ballads to a crowd of adoring tourists. It turns out the guy sings pretty well in Chinese!

A man of many talents and jobs, Kieran is one of our regular Secret Bar Crawl hosts, leading the groups on Saturday nights as we show you the best small bars in Surry Hills and Darlinghurst. Another inner-west local, Kieran also leads the Hidden Sydney walking tour on some weekends.

Kieran’s other ways to earn a crumb include busking, looking after kids in after-school care and dressing up as Santa at Christmas time. He’s working on making his TikTok account go viral and is going to be big in Asia any day now – meet him before he’s famous!
