Sidney Harbour is as you allready know, a "must see", both during the day and night. A lot of restaurants and places to get drinks. An amazing view during the evening/night with the opra house and the bridge.

You must take the opportunity to visit Sydney Harbour. Sydney itself is a relatively clean and safe city to visit. Plenty of accommodation and restaurants.

Take a ferry to Manly or just a day cruise on this spectacular harbour. Walk around the rocks & explore the heritage area of Sydney or dine at the numerous restaurants.

Nice to just wander around on the weekend. We were lucky it wasn't too busy, either walk round to the Opera House, sit and people watch, go around to the markets on the other side, to the rocks area or catch a ferry over to Manly. Prices weren't too bad for brunch but beware the seagulls!
