Take the 4.30 pm ferry to manly. Spend some time in manly wharf and return with 5.30 ferry. City lights up around 6.00 so when you're reaching Sydney harbour, you'll be welcomed back by the glowing skyline.

The $63 pass, good on all public transport, made getting around Sydney a breeze. The ferries were easy to understand and provided entertainment as well as transport.

Travellers and tourists should be aware that they can purchase a DayTripper tickect for approx. $23 and use the ferries, trains and light rail all day. Ferries are excellent and so to the staff
