Magnificent Harbour with truly magnificent views. The Harbour Bridge & the Sydney Opera House are the 2 stand-outs. On a fine day, the views are truly picture postcard stuff. Watching the ferries transport hundred of people around the Harbour daily, whether it be sightseeing or just travelling to or from home to work, is amazing. It is a city that... More

How fun to finally see in person what I have seen countless images of on T.V , in film and in print. Each time you see the harbor it is breathtaking. The combination of architecture, water and nature is beautiful each and every time you come upon it.

The Sydney Harbour is a must visit place for everybody. The place is lovely and is always bustling with so many people. The energy is always high and it seems like all of Sydney is there! The place is absolutely awesome and is easily accessible by different means of transport.

Make sure you take an Opera House tour. We took the tour and tasting plate tour, plus saw an opera that night. Would highly recommend this for any age.

Sydney Harbour is the centerpiece of this beautiful city and every visitor should take the time to spend some quality time on it and soak up the beauty of this Australian gem. The least expensive journey would be by public ferry trip and a trip to Manly is highly recommended. We would also recommend a ferry ride into Darling Harbour... More

Stunning building, inside and out. Went to an opera and had a meal in the Mozart restaurant. This was quick and reasonable.

I think for one of the top # places to see before you die its a bit overrated. Defiantly in need of an upgrade.

Based on recommendations we took a harbor cruise (Manly Ferry) around Sydney Harbor. We really enjoyed it and I would recommend it highly to anyone visiting Sydney. One gets a better perspective on how big the harbor is and how it is so essential to life in this big city.
