“lively, cosmopolitan feel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

Great for a drink early evening or just as a starting point for catching ferries to eg.Manley or buses Shops and restaurants are top price due to number of tourists

“Love walking over the bridge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

Love walking from the suburbs , over the bridge with the amazing views of Darling Harbour, Opera House, and Botanical Gardens. I've also done the bridge climb...also highly recommend and I have a fear of heights.

“If you’re going to do one thing in Sydney…”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

If you only have time for one thing to do while in Sydney, then a walk around the harbor area is the way to go. There is so much activity in the area that you really don’t need to do any planning: You have photos ops like the bridge and opera house, shopping in The Rocks, tons of pubs and restaurants and a variety of street performers.

A walk from Dawes Point Park (basically under the Sydney Harbour Bridge) to the Sydney Opera House will probably take you a few hours, because you’ll just end up stopping and taking in the culture. A great way to spend a day – and if the day isn’t over, you can keep on walking through the Botanic Gardens and up to Hyde Park. The walk by itself is free – you decide how much money you want to spend along the way.

“What's not to love!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

A vibrant, energetic center with ferries that take you to wonderful places. It was especially fun to see all the street entertainers, including fire eaters, aboriginal musicians and healers!
