We loved the atmosphere, the many varieties of restaurants, The views. We walked over the pyrmont bridge which we highly recommend as the views a vast and there is many attractions to photograph or video. The tranquillity of the water was lovely. just to stroll or sip on a coffee and watch people come and go was lovely.

Sydney is the biggest cities of Australia. The Harbour Bridge is fabulous. The Opera house is worth seeing. Nice markets and good nightlife.

Just get on the ordinary ferries and travel all over. Don't bother with cruises. Make sure you go up the Parramatta river as well.

Sydney is a super place to visit, very young population with lots of money in their pockets. Loads of entertainment, great bars, clubs, food, walks. Just do it

Can't really argue with the icons in the harbour. A great visit for anyone. I recommend a harbour cruise and/or walking across the harbour bridge.

I have been to Sydney many times and I remain amazed by the beautiful scenery of Sydney harbor. Its characteristic landmarks that are the Opera House and Bridge are not over-rated. It is worth discovering on the water, on a ferry or a water taxi. Cruising under the Bridge or getting across to Manly are worth the experience.
