We visited Sydney Harbour a number of times and also saw the magnificent views from a helicopter, a tall ship and ferries. Each time the views and atmosphere were different but never disappointing. It is one of those 'must see' places in the world.

Always great to come back here - harbour is stunning with opera house in background and bridge. Eat away from anything touristy.

It's historic, world renowned and for a good reason, the Harbour is always a bustle, ferries, cruise ships and water taxes zipping about. The restaurant's are overpriced but generally ok but the scene and view are priceless.

We took a river cruise and a 8 day cruise out of this harbor and both offered great views of the Harbour & downtown views

It is a very busy harbour, but considering how much it is used I think it is absolutely beautiful. Loads of character and life wherever you look.

Do it! So much to do & see. On your own, with your partner, family or friends. You can spend as much or as little as you like. There's always something happening. Just do it!

I spent few hours walking around the harbour, from noon till evening and watched the sunset. It was an amazing view. Would be great to see the Sydney Opera House from a different perspective to have a more beautiful sight.
