The Sydney harbour area is beautiful to see. There is so much going on. Take a ferry to Manley beach or visit some of the great shops around the area. The restaurants are also very good to visit. There is so much to see and do there, you should visit it just to see all the great things there.

I liked the atmosphere and good restaurants. Many 'things to do' whilst drinking in the ambience. Only down side is that it's getting expensive.

My family and I had a wonderful time there. Tons of places to take photos. A few shops here and there but the Opera House is definitely a must. Loved it and would visit there again.

Don't get it twisted Sydney harbour and the bridge are two separate things, it was lovely to walk here at night and just enjoy the evening But if you want to eat here come during the day, the meals are more reasonably priceD during the day...

Seeing is believing! Clean, breathtaking views of the Opera House , close to many historic and cultural venues. Love travelling on the ferries and watching the activity on the water.

Whenever I am in Sydney, I never fail to miss going to the Harbour bridge and Opera House. You feel so relaxed looking at the beautiful scenery and the masterpiece. The cafe below it also has some great food to offer. Sometimes just head down there for a casual walk. Love going there every time.

You can see all the huge ships in the Harbour going around the world, as well as coffee breaks, lunches, shopping, dinner, and the beautiful lights in the evening around the harbour

Darling Harbor is a perfect place for children, who can see wild life, sea life of Australia. It's really an amazing and impressive experience. It's also a good place for lovers. On Saturdays, there are fireworks show. You may enjoy food, wine and music during the date. After dinner, you may have a walk or watch a movie.
