Easily reached by walking up George Street or by train or bus, this is also the location from where to take several water tours around the Harbour or out to watch the... More

The iconic bridge and the ever busy harbour . Loved watching the climbers on the bridge and the rambling walks around the harbour.

great spot to sit and people watch. It's always quite busy but nice for a cuppa or a bite to eat. Expect to pay quite a bit for food tho. The Opera House and the Harbour Bridge are a must while in Sydney

We decided on the "morning coffee" tour because we didn't want to wait for the later time of a different. The boat is comfortable and the commentary throughout the trip is great. Great photos can be taken from the upper deck. I don't think it was worth the extra cost to do the "coffee".

It can be a bit crowded and touristy, but is still a must see location. A great place to relax, have a drink, and check out some of the main sights. That said, probably no more than an hour required to see it all - and that's going at a leisurely place.

All good, interesting and ferries are good and run regularly. Went to Taronga Zoo one day and Manly next. You see Harbour Bridge and Opera house. There are so many different bays.

Take a nice walk on the Sydney Harbour. The view is great. You see the famous Sydney Opera House to the bridge. There are many boats to take you for tours to see the Harbour from the water. While walking around you can shop or find many places to eat and drink.
