“The landmark of Sydney”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2015 NEW

If you are visiting Sydney and you have not visited the Harbour you have missed out your best part of Sydney.My most favourite place was the harbour with its quaint pubs cafes and various selling their products and some acrobats showing their stunts was very stimulating to me.The ferries with their howitzers on the pier were a sound of music to my ears.If I go back to Sydney it will be to enjoy a full day to spend at the harbour.

“Certainly The Best Harbour in The World.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2015 NEW

The harbour Bridge, the opera House, Luna Park and.... you will be amazed with all of these iconic man made structures in a beautiful harbour. Certainly Sydney is one of the cities that you should visit at least one, and Sydney Harbour is the heart of Sydney.

“SIDNEY KING CROSS AVENUE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2015 NEW

I been in Sidney 1987 , I was around the world during a world cruise . I visit the city which was excellent and out standing . We deal to go to the KING CROSS ROAD , one of the famous in Sidney . The Sidney Myer Music Bowl is an outdoor performance venue in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It is located in the lawns and gardens of Kings Domain, Linlithgow Ave, Melbourne, close to the Arts Centre and the Southbank entertainment precinct. It was officially opened by Prime Minister Robert Menzies on 12 February 1959, with an audience of 30,000 people, and is listed on the Victorian Heritage Register. May one day I will join again Sidney

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2015 NEW

I've seen the pictures, read the reviews, but nothing prepares you for how stunning the Harbour is. Take a day to stroll near the waterfront, check out the cafes, enjoy people watching and walk to The Rocks (cool and hip neighborhood) to the Opera House, to the Botanical Gardens. Absolutely beautiful any time of year. You can pick up Harbour cruises and water taxis here as well. Enjoy!

“Opera house was not as impressive as i thought it would be”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2015 NEW

Didnt go in but walked around the outside and had a nice lunch outside. Taronga beach was amazing, expecially the views. The kids had a great jet boat ride around the harbour too.
