Obviously one of the most beautiful spots in the world. At every turn there is something spectacular to see. Get out on one of the local ferries - great perspective from the water.

We stayed at the fabulous Darling Hotel and so we were close to Sydney harbour. there was so much to do and see at the harbour . It was best at night when there were so many fellow visitors who were enjoying the sights, the harbour lights and eating out in the many restaurants. This is the place to visit

We walk,... More

Many a time while coming over the harbour in a plane it's just a magnificent sight to see to be granted when coming home.Not only can you enjoy that amazing view from above but there are... More

Well what can you say about this most amazing sight right in the city. Whether walking around it, floating on it or driving over it, Sydney Harbour is a beautiful, dramatic, amazing place to be. From the many Harbourside parks, suburbs and gardens to the islands dotted about it is a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of a... More
