I'd always wanted to see the Sydney Harbour with my own eyes and I was even more impressed with it in the flesh than in the photos. I think Sydney has to be one of the best cities in the world and this is mostly in part the natural harbour it nestles within. The transport system throughout Sydney is excellent,... More

It's a stunning place as it looks in pictures. A first view itself will make you fall in love. Look for perfect blue sky with bridge on one side and opera house on other. Spend time walking over the place and took a ferry to reach other side. Must in evenings to walk down the place with eating out at... More

Great to get pics of the opera house and bridge. Easy to get something to eat and drink still with views of both opera house and bridge. As others have said, on the water is best. Take a ferry from the ferry terminals, all ferrys give great views through the harbour.

I don't need to write down a lot here because if you come to Sydney then of course you need to see the harbour such a beautiful place the best in the world for me! Take the ferry or another boat if you can afford it and you will get beautiful pictures and see so much!

This is the best view in the world. I have seen many City Harbours, but nothing tops this one. Even on a miserable day it is hard not to appreciate this view.

We arrived just as the sun was setting, it took our breath away, the bridge and the Opera house sent shivers down my spine. There is so much to see and do, there are plenty of tourist information kiosk to help and advise you. We spent days here and loved every minute. Circular Quay is worth visiting in the evening,the...
