You simply must; go on a ferry trip, walk around to Mrs Macquarie's Chair, see the view from the Opera House, dine at one of the finest restaurants, or simply sit & eat a nice cream while you watch the world sail by with this infamous & awesome back drop that is The Sydney Harbour!

Great scenery. Beautiful weather. Funny street performers. Tons of tourists. Take a ferry to see more of the scenery.

You can't say you've been to Sydney without going to Sydney Harbour, right? Magnificent view everywhere... from the Sydney Bridge to the Opera House..... Make sure your camera's fully charged for the day before arriving here... Even an ice cream cone tastes better when you are eating it at Sydney Harbour..The view, the atmosphere, it's just one of its kind!... More

Brilliant, busy and lots to see, for great views of the opera house and Bridge this is the place to be. Walk along and listen to the music from the Aboriginal families and street musicians.

What is there not to love about Sydney Harbour. The ferries are wonderful to take in the beautiful views.

Walk around the shores, take the ferry, walk across the bridge, from all angles this harbour will inspire your senses. What a magic location is this city.

I have gone to Sydney a fair amount for business over the past few years, and the Sydney Harbour never gets old! I like it so much that I often feel compelled to stay near Circular Quay, even if just having a quick overnight visit that would otherwise mean staying by the airport. It's just one of the world's most... More

The bridge was situated beautifully on the harbor. Lit after dark, the the harbor bridge offers a spectacular view of the Sydney Opera House and the harbor. However, the fences surrounding the walkway compromises the view of photography and does not do photos justice.

I never get tired of being out on the Harbour. Whether it is just a simple ferry ride or kicking back on a lunch cruise. The wind in your hair, brilliant views and scenic sights. It rocks.
