Took one of these ferry’s for a quick trip around to circular quay and the Sydney opera house. It was great fun and our captain was very informative. Quick stop for photos before returning back to Darling Harbour. Great introduction to Sydney waterscape.

It’s indeed a good way to see the Sydney harbour in the summer. We booked a private taxi for 30 mins and went around the bridge and opera. Steve the skipper was great and friendly.

Darling Harbour
The original docklands of Darling Harbour have been
transformed into a tourist mecca with entertainment
for the whole family. Cockle Bay Wharf offers dining
options from budget to upscale and million dollar
views of the harbour. Young crowds gather on weekends
for nightlife that ranges from salsa clubs to DJ's.
Families can visit the Chinese Garden of Friendship or
the Sydney Aquarium, one of the largest in the world.

Tamarama is near Bondi. I'd get a train from Circular Quay to Bondi and then a bus to Tamarama. Hope this helps. You can get a taxi.

Hi there, Sorry for the delay. Kerry is 100% correct. You cannot get a Water Taxi to Tamarama, it is outside of the Sydney Heads where the seas can get very big. It is not suitable for a water taxi. Thanks,
