We disembarked here on our recent cruise and it's always great to be in Sydney. We were able to walk to the train station which took us about 10mins, jump on a train and straight to the airport. We've done Sydney before and love it. A must whilst anyone is in Sydney is a dinner cruise. It takes you out into the harbour, the food is excellent and it's a great way to see the skyline/bridge. Another must is to do the bridge climb, especially at twilight.

It was very near to our hotel and one of the first place we visited. Loved the view of the opera house and Sydney harbour bridge. Lots of eateries to choose from and ferries ride also available. One can also visit the museum there or just have leisurely stroll along the quay. Shopping option available is also good.

Circular Quay is where it all happens! Ferries and Trains to various locations. Easy to navigate and plenty of good signage. My only negative comment is if you are a backpacker or want to walk around without your luggage there are no storage lockers!! which I think is ridiculous... closest was a 15 minute walk ...

We stayed at the Marriott. The entire area is perfectly located to everything including the ferries. The tour buses pick up near by. Lots of restaurants and souvenir shops.

It is a very busy place, it is where the cruise ships arrive, but there are also many restaurants, bars and shops where you can spend many hours entertained.
There are many tourists but also many local and young people who visit the area. The restuarants are good and have happy hour usually from 3 to 6 or 7 pm
From there the ferries leave for Watson Bay, Manly Island, Toronga zoo and Darling Harbor.

Great place to catch the ferries for all their routes around the harbour and bay . Sunday they are a bargain price on the Opal card so explore as much as possible .

I have done it on a ship sailing and with a guide that explains you about the Quay and all what you see around.

We visited on rembrance day and the artist of a red poppy sculpture was there to share sands from the departure point of the Australian soldiers who left for Gallipoli. A. Touching tribute on the 100th anniversary of the armistice. Circular quay gives access to the Rocks or the wharfs for Harbour cruises.
