The harbour front is a real nice place to stroll around. Plenty to see and lots of places to eat & drink. It is also the place to start your boat trip, with a variety of different ones. Well worth a visit.

This is a must to visit. However, parking is very difficult. There is an undercover carpark, not sure of the price. Best way is to walk, or take the tram instead of driving and trying to park. It's an interesting place and very pretty. Also...More
