Anyone visiting Sydney should take a ferry ride out on the harbour and over to places like Manly and the surrounding area
It is a great way to see the harbour and enjoy the scenery and smell the sea air

Stayed in Manly and took the ferry to/from Sydney 3 times during our stay. Staff in Manly VERY HELPFUL in explaining the opal card, tap on/off and govt vs private ferries. There is a cap per day on how much they will charge for transport including ferries, buses and trains - and less on a weekend. Using the private ferries (I.e. Manly Fast Ferry) would not be included and you pay more. Found the regular ferry schedule to be frequent enough for our schedule, clean, on time. Also a great way to view Sydney at sunrise and sunset.

We were told that the ferry ride out to Manly Beach was a good sale, so we took it on a beautiful, sunny Sunday afternoon. The ferry was packed but not so that you were uncomfortable. It was also clean with no trash from the previous run back to Sydney. The ferry ride was affordable and it was a beautiful cruise from Sydney Harbor to Manly Beach. In less than one hour, we were comfortably transported.

Enjoy the habour view at small cost. May favorite route was 'Circular Quay to Manly', big ferry, friendly crew, clean and hassle free. Note that the wharf assigned at real time so, no fix info on which one to board your ferry, just check their screen out prior to enter to the wharf.
