I think Sydney is the most beautiful harbour in the world - the bridge, the opera house, circular quay - everything about it. Get on a boat if you can to see everything from the water. Buy a cheap train ticket from the City to the North Shore to go over the bridge on the train. If you are brave,... More

We were lucky enough to rent an apartment in Elizabeth Bay with an incredible view of Sydney Harbour for a week. Every morning and evening we enjoyed the views of the Harbour with ferry boats, sail boats, Navy ships and cruise ships. We also enjoyed our Manly ferry ride with local friends narrating all the sights as we traveled to... More

Fabulous sail on the harbour. Very personalised trip, accommodating, friendly and thoughtful. Something magical about being with a special person (or a small group) on one of the most beautiful harbours under sail. Highly recommended. Note, it is an older yacht but still has charm.

How can you not love the harbour? Sydney is such a great city and the water is what makes the whole city so wonderful - a good view from where you stay is such a treat, and worth the expense :)

Many food options but not vegan/vegetarian friendly. Very beautiful scenery and amazing pictures can be taken here. Prices are fair (about $20 US per plate). Several local landmarks make this a prime location to visit and can be navigated in less than 1 hour.

We had a lovely day so the cruise was a relaxing way to see the harbor. You have a perfect view of the Opera House and other sites around the harbor. It's very impressive and recommend that you spend time here and enjoy the sights.

This place is the best. We have been to a lot of places but Sydney Harbour is the best place to come to, so many restaurants, bars, ambience is great. What more could you want?
