It was great actually seeing the harbour in real life - after having just seen pics and videos. It is definitely a site to visit if you are in Australia. There are restaurants around (bit pricy), but serve amazing dishes. I recommend walking the bridge.

Sydney harbour doesn't really need another review but I couldn't help myself. It really is one of the most beautiful places in the modern world. Whether taking in the opera house or the harbour bridge, catching a ferry or just sitting and watching it all go by, it's a truly unique place that stands up to the best the human... More

Living in South East Queensland, it has been many years since I have had the opportunity to walk from Circular Key to the Opera House. My wife and myself found the walk and the sights very interesting and entertaining. We also rode the ferry from Manly to Circular Quay. Many, many photographs were taken. I am sure that when the...

Great city, great harbor, great opera house. We also had some of the best meals of our trip while in Sydney. We walked across the harbor bridge and took a cruise around the bay to see the harbor in all its glorious variety. There are plenty of coffee shops and restaurants throughout the area.

From the CBD side, the Sydney Harbour view could be enjoyed from various vantage points such as the Botanical Garden, Circular Quay and The Rocks. However, you could also enjoy the Sydney Harbour view from across the other side of the Bridge. Enjoy the Sydney Harbour on a cruise, on a ferry ride or at a point (ferry terminal) like... More
