Great views as you travel to Manley. Get to the front of the boat on the outward and return journey for the best photos. There is an Aldi supermarket as you get off the ferry which makes for an inexpensive place to pick up picnic supplies. If you have a family go on a Sunday when you can use the... More

On Sundays the public transport company does its Sunday Fun Day special, meaning that all the public transport is cheaper on Sundays. Go then to get the biggest discount from the standard fare. A nice ride out to Manly and an even better trip back with the harbour, Opera house and bridge views. One of the top ten things to... More

A beautiful old ferry, see all the great sites, the ride is about 30 minutes, slow enough to get great photo's of the most beautiful harbour in Australia, get with 100 metres of the Opera House and a 200 metres of Sydney harbour bridge, ferry is comfortable, plenty of seating, toilets café, upstairs and downstairs.

A beautiful 30 minute ride from the Harbour to Manly. If you have a My Multi card 3 it's free, if not a return ticket is AU$15.20. Plenty of photo opportunities for the Bridge and the Opera House. Many itself is spotlessly clean and if you walk to the end of the main street (just a few minutes) you'll arrive... More

Sydney Harbor is the largest natural harbor in the world and the best way to see the sights of the city and nearby locals is from the sea. We purchased the 24-hour pass and Taronga zoo pass, it was a excellent choice because we were able to visit so many sights at the lowest cost. The hop-on, hop-off ferry let... More
