Owner description: Secluded beaches, quiet coves and soaring headlands predominate this harbor, which is considered one of the world's most beautiful.

It is a tradition when you are in Sydney to go out onto the harbour. There are some really reasonable trips but one of the cheapest and most beautiful is to catch the ferry to Manly from Circular Quay. You go out past the Sydney Opera House on your right, the Sydney Harbour Bridge to your left (known as "The Coat-hanger" to the locals). You sail past little islands and Rose Bay almost to the Heads of the Harbour but turn left into Manly. You get an ice-cream in Manly and catch the ferry back. A reasonable and fantastic Sydney experience.

Simply stunning harbour. Worth more than the visit. We walked around to the rocks n had coffee n cake. Love the feel of walking near the bridge and seeing the Opera House from across Circular Quay

Loved this place. Busy but wonderful atmosphere especially in the evening. Enjoyed eating at a waterside bar/restaurant overlooking the bridge and Opera House. Great photo opportunities of this iconic place.

These ferry rides we're great! Rides (I took) we're less that AU$5 and accept Opal. Try to get on at the second level quick and sit outside for amazing views. The ferry from Manly to Circular Quay at night provided amazing views of the city, Bridge, and Opera House
