What better way to see Sydney harbour than to do it by ferry. Tickets were quick and easy to get, not too much of a wait but do be quick if you want a nice seat up top on a sunny day. Seats go quickly.

The ferries were on time, clean and operated by friendly staff. A great way to get around and see Sydney by water.

The ferry to Manly is really great and relaxing. Manly is really beautiful and is not far from the ferry wharf. The walk from Shelly beach to North Head is really a great walk. The walk is about 8 km and is totally worth it. The view is fantastic and you get a great view of Watsons bay and the city. From North you can take bus 135 back to Manly wharf unless you prefer to walk another 8km to it.

Public transport but a nice alternative if it is available. We were headed to Cockatoo Island so the ferry from Circular Quay takes you under the bridge and past Luna Park. I nice little adventure if you are new town.

Don't expect the big yellow and green ferries on this run at the moment. You will get a variety of the more modern kind. One day we had a craft with the seats up top. If you are not worried about being blown about it is a nice way to look about.

The staff are nice and helpful and available for all manner of silly questions.
