Bays galore, and just the bridge and opera house make it good day. Use the city Opal cards to hop on and off the many ferries. Must go to Manly and it's beach.

A great place to see both Opera house and bridge. Plenty of good restraunts and bars. Always something going on and good people watching areas. Ferries water taxies and fun experiences all available.

Sydney Harbor's iconic Opera House and Harbor Bridge are only 2 of a wide variety of enjoyable sites and activities in the heart of the city. It is easy walking distance from the harbor into the city center with shops, restaurants, parks, and historical buildings.

Always wanted to go and it’s beautiful. Tick on the bucket list. Loads to do and see. You’ll pay more to sit out and have a drink and food here but it’s worth it. Our cruise left from here also.

Hi! I would agree with an earlier respond. To have a great time viewing the fireworks the advantage would be to book in at a hire apartment or hotel with perfect sights of the Harbour Bridge. Another, cheaper way to view is... More

I’m not sure what your question is ? Are you looking for a website about the Harbour ? The HTML characters you are asking about I can’t help you with , speak to a computer guy . Jeff
