Great way of seeing the Harbour bridge and the opera house from the water. Ferries run to various places, and we went to the delightful Manley Beach which took less than half an hour. Tickets can be purchased ashore and are reasonably priced.

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.
