It is always something to see! It is the ferry terminal but there are also busses, taxis and much more. There are many restaurants and shops in this area. You can also see the landing and start of the huge cruise ships. It was amazing to watch tourist get off and on the ship. It was a kind of interesting to see it once. The beautiful promenade to the Harbour Bridge and a small green park starts at Circular Quay. Next to the terminal were also musicians and artists to see. Enjoy the atmosphere and don't hurry too much even it is a turntable for tourists.

Circular Quay is a busy port. It is a centre of activities of all sorts. Buses, taxis, trains, ferries, cruise ships, sailing boats and other kinds of boats, they all can be found here. The Opera House is just across the water a couple of hundred metres away. There are museums nearby and there are countless cafes, restaurants, souvenir shops, and everything else in between. The port dates to the early part of the 19th century and due to its circular shape it was named thus. The old Rocks area is just "up the road" from the port and so is practically everything else! The New Year's Fireworks are centred here too. And most of all, the views are spectacular. It is certainly worth a visit or two!

Circular Quay is where cruise ships tie up. It also has ferry quays, a railway station and bus stops. It's also one of the best places in Sydney to see the New Years' Fireworks Display, one of the world's best
