Favorite place in Sydney to watch the boats coming in and out. Gallery across the harbour and so many cafes and restaurants to grab a bite to eat!

Enjoyed walking around and taking photos with the family. Try to go on a weekday because it's less crowded.

We have travelled by coach around parts of the Harbour, flown over it on arrival, and taken a cruise around its many bays. There are so many great views of this harbour and its surroundings. A visit, to it, on it or over it, is a must when in Sydney. Highly recommended

A good place to walk around in the evenings and there are plenty of restaurants to dine. I tried Kangaroo steak at one of the restaurants and it wasnt bad.

A beatiful harbour with lots to see. Walk the edges or catch a ferry across to Manly or the Zoo. Well worth a visit at any time if the year.
