So much to see here.. so many great views and photo opportunities. Many restaurant and tourist shop choices. It would be difficult to visit Sydney and not spend any time in the harbor.

If your going to Sydney you definetly have to hop a ferry or go on a cruise around the harbour, there are some spectacular sights and you can hop on hop off and explore further

This is just beautiful and necessary for all. Great from different angles, I would recommend taking a simple ferry trip on the loop or towards Watson's Bay or Manly Bay just for the views. Places to eat are appropriately priced and walks around are just wonderful to soak up the views and people watch.

Take a harbor tour either in a local ferry or on an official tour, this gives you an overview of one of the most iconic locations in the world

The view of the Harbour and the bridge is wonderful. Pretty much exactly as you would imagine from all the pictures.

When the sun is out and shining Sydney Harbour really is quite a sight- between the Harbour Bridge and the Opera house, the blueness of the ocean and the passing ferries is a wondrous sight. Perfect to sit and eat an ice cream and people watch, or dine on one of the many cafe's and restaurants along the harbor dock.

Great promenade, full of little bars and restaurants on your walk to Sydney Opera house. Amazing views of Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. We went over New Year period so was very busy.
