We did not take an actual harbor cruise, as the ferries provided a cheaper and better alternative! I would recommend to anyone visiting Sydney, to spend a... More

Having been born overseas, travelling yearly and living in Sydney for 43 years, I can, without a doubt state that Sydney harbour and its environs are second to none. This is the home of the world famous new years Eve fireworks, the iconic harbour bridge and Opera House to name a few. If you are visiting Sydney, you need to... More

First visit to Sydney and was entranced by the wonderful harbour and the views its lays upon you. The ferries are superb - cheap, easy to navigate and run by friendly staff. A must do on your visit to Sydney.....just get an Opal,card immediately and load it up $15 for every day of your stay.

Walked here from our hotel, Hotel 59, about half an hour or so, a nice walk. Went into the Opera House, got some good photos also some good photos of the bridge. Walked through the Botanical Gardens to get here, which was a really nice place. Just great to say that we have been there! Regards Baslady

Couldn't get enough of the Harbour views with all the boats and ferries, the Bridge and of course the Opera House.

It was great actually seeing the harbour in real life - after having just seen pics and videos. It is definitely a site to visit if you are in Australia. There are restaurants around (bit pricy), but serve amazing dishes. I recommend walking the bridge.
