The best attractions are around the harbor: Opera House, Harbor Bridge, Circular Quay, The Rocks. Simply put, the heart of Sydney for tourists. Sppent most of our time here.

Sydney harbour is so scenic and conveniently located in the city centre no wonder it’s one of the favourite must visit tourist spots. Just hop on a train or bus to Circular Quay station and take a stroll along the harbour with the iconic Sydney Opera house only a short distance from the wharf on the right hand side and... More

Take a ferry ride around the harbour . Have lunch/dinner at the nearby Rocks area or maybe even take the Rivercat to Parramatta, trip takes about an hour traveling along the Parramatta River. Or if you want to splash out go on a sunset dinner cruise.

Sydney Harbour is truly magnificent and if you take a ferry ride across to Manly Beach on a glorious day you will appreciate this very much. The sea sparkles and mirrors the bright azure blue sky. You can also visit Taronga Zoo by Ferry and again view the spectacle of Sydney Harbour from that vantage point. So much to admire!

We have taken many overseas visitors to Sydney Harbour and never fail to enjoy the experience each time ourselves. It is a lovely and interesting walk all the way around from the Rocks area passed the piers for the ferries, to the Opera House. We usually stop for a drink at the Opera Bar, sitting outside looking straight at the... More

You could stare at the Opera House and Harbour Bridge all day and not get tired of it. It is particularly wonderful in late afternoon / early evening, when happy hour patrons and picnickers line the harbor areas to enjoy the views.
