wow, we set off from Watsons Bay on what must have been a hydrofoil and were back at Circular key in no time. Great value seeing the City from the harbour

Any of the standard ferries are worth a trip. Our favourite was the Taronga Ferry and the Manly Ferry

“You have to take a ride!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2012

We took quite a few ferry rides and I think it was one of the best things about our stay in Sydney. Just taking a short ride from Circular Quay to Darling Harbour is awesome. Take a little break from walking or taking the bus. Enjoy the wind in your hair, the sun in your face and the free wifi on board (for those who cannot do without!). We purchased a transport pass which included ferry rides so it's a good option if you're staying in Sydney for more than a few days. The photo ops are also really nice.
