At the Sydney Harbour you have many entertainment and culinary options. You can visit a musem, the Opera House, the Harbour Bridge and plenty of restaurant options. You can walk along the harbour, exercise or just watch the sunset. It’s a place full of life!

For just a few dollars, you can enjoy 30 minutes of the most beautiful scenery, as you approach Manly you pass the Heads & the view is incredible. Well worth the trip & Manly's a great place to grab coffee or lunch.

Great place to stroll from the Opera House round to The Rocks with great dining at either end, try to avoid when the cruise boat has just arrived for obvious reasons.
