Sydney Harbour (sometimes referred to as Port Jackson) is the world's deepest natural harbour. For most Sydneysiders it is used to get from place to place by Sydney's excellent Ferry network. The Manly Ferry is wonderful and has an old-fashioned feel about it. Depending on...More

The best way to expereince the real Sydney we all come to see. Organise a few hours to do a return trip to Manley and marvel at one of the most spectacular cities in the world.

There is so much to do at the harbor. Many dinner cruises or sightseeing cruises leave from there. We went on a dinner cruise as well as a trip across the harbor to the zoo. Both trips were well worth the money.

We enjoyed the harbor area and the Opera House. I recommend the Opera House Tour. It is well worth it. The harbor cruise was great and I recommend that as well.

The harbour area is a great place to hang out. Buskers, ice cream, activities, art, people watching, boats coming and going, and it's all free! Except the ice cream. Ice cream isn't free.

On and off the water so much to see by day and night. Always changing just walk around the rocks area and on to the opera house or climb the bridge or just catch the ferry.

Fabulous views. We come from a port city but were still blown away by the vastness of the Sydney Harbour.

We had a full guided tour of the Opera House with Monika, our German speaking guide, she was just incredible, gave us a lot of information. Our German group of 21 were very happy with Monika.

Hi. I would walk beyond the ocean liner berths to under the Harbour Bridge. Great views, especially early morning, when the angle of the sun gives great lighting.
