Loved the vibrancy, lots of colourful things going on. Easy to access the boats & train. Good bars & restaurants. Not for anyone who wants peace & quiet.

It makes Sydney one of the most stunning cities in the world! And I have been to a few! beautiful from every angle and has many places to explore. Catch the public transport ferries - they are a cheaper way to explore the harbour.

You have not been to Sydney without visiting the harbour area for a city and country rich in maritime history. Like all harbours, it has the circular quays, the rocks on the East and Opera house in the West. Very pheasant to take a walk along the bustling place .
