We visited the harbour at day and night. A lot of restaurants and a nice view on the harbor bridge. We were lucky and also saw how the chinese new years firework. It‘s a must see in Sydney!

The afternoon Premium tour allows you to gain a far reaching understanding of the history and the sights of the Harbour. Fully narrated by a well informed articulate guide and the sound system worked well throughout the well maintained boat.

You can’t miss the harbor. Tons of shops restaurants and places to see. Better at night when lighted up. Would recommend a ferry or boat to see all angles.

Hi. I would walk beyond the ocean liner berths to under the Harbour Bridge. Great views, especially early morning, when the angle of the sun gives great lighting.
