Nightlife, good restaurants and fun. Be sure and take the nighttime harbor cruise to see the Sydney Opera House at night as well as the skyline..

“Sydney is the Harbour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We just love the Harbour in Sydney. We like to stay near Circular Quay (usually at The Rocks) get a ferry/bus/train pass and use the ferries whenever possible. Round to Darling Harbour, across to Manly, to Watson's Bay for lunch or just a Harbour cruise - there is always so much to see. Another suggestion is to take a ferry to a new destination and spend time exploring - amazing what you find. Take a River Cat up to Parramatta that is also an amazing scenic trip.
