Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What travellers are saying
- Easy to find using the intercity light rail. After arriving at the Circular Quay (key), it’s an easy walk around the harborWritten 28 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Beautiful gardens with tropical plants! Overlooking Sydney Opera House and free. Highly recommend a visit - it was one of our favourite bits!Written 15 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Very good swimming and surfing and very safe with soft sand and life guards. Nice shops nearby. The water is warmish and so clean you can nearly drink it.Written 28 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Great location for an evening stroll. Had the opportunity to have Easter lunch there too. Great atmosphere with many restaurants to choose from. Definitely worth the stroll.Written 29 November 2023
- Queen Victoria Building - grand heritage olde-worlde, iconic copper-domes, stained glass, 5 level of shops bedecked with Christmas cheer, giant Xmas tree in the interior. The Great Australian Clock (astronomical) hangs suspended from the ceiling – amazing. Elegant high-end shops, restaurants, cafes, white-red-green baubles exterior Xmas tree, lit up at the night - retail-therapy time. Will visit again soon.

- This was a nice area. It was best to go when you visit near circular quay. But for me, the shops were a little expensive and take care when choosing a restaurant. Some are just expensive tourist traps.Written 24 November 2023
- Nice walk from round the bridge and the rocks to circular quay onto the opera house and into the gardens you see the best bits of Sydney in one walkWritten 17 October 2023
- Saturday the 25th of November was part of the Black Friday weekend and the temperature in Sydney was 20 with persistent rain. Paramore were playing a concert across the road. There was no better place to go than the Gallery of New South Wales. I spent three full hours in the gallery. The gallery is a beautiful building. There is a fantastic selection of Art in the gallery. My favourite was Picasso's Nude in a rocking chair. A must visit on a trip to Sydney.Written 25 November 2023
- Ferries, the train, tram all converge on the quay, from which there are great views and numerous coffee shops, eateries tooWritten 24 October 2023
- Took the train and bus to Bondi - head for the beach at Bondi, when we visit Sydney. Beach, glistening ocean still draws the crowds, the life-saver statue is a reminder, though, of caution. The Bondi Pavilion has been updated and has undergone an amazing transformation. Not been to Sydney in a long time, we'll come again soon.

- We enjoyed a wonderful day having lunch at the boutique hotel restaurant with a wonderful view, good food albeit no service , and spending time walking around , laying down on the grass and dipping our toes in the water. The view of the famous bridge, CBD , but also seagulls and what nature has best made it a perfect day .Written 1 October 2023
- Two walkways - my fave, turn left from ferry terminal and take a nice amble along water edge, with pleasantly manicured lawns, a marina, swimming bays (with shark nets), pretty flowers and plants, and posh houses to peer at.
Or/and... Turn right from ferry terminal,walk through a pleasant shopping street (Visitor Information on nearest corner), meander up to beach, and you have another lovely walk with sea views, many passers-by (and their dogs), and cafes and restaurants at main Manley swimming beach. I much prefer this beach area to Bondi.
There is a nice market down main shopping streets on Sundays.Written 26 September 2023
- It's a solid older cathedral with some great paintings and stained glass windows. Doesn't compare too well to some of the larger/older cathedrals of Europe, but still pretty cool.
A 20-30 visit is likely enough for most people.Written 28 November 2023
- Really nice clean beach. Loved the gas bbq located right beside the beach. Lots of nice restaurants and amenities nearby. Would go backWritten 24 October 2023
- Lovely gallery. Hard to choose a print but I fell in love with Lily the Koalo so I adopted her and brought her back to the UK.
Graham spent a lot of time with us explaining his work and the hidden words.
Well worth a visit to the Rocks to visit this amazing gallery.Written 28 November 2023
