“A Ferry Trip is a must”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

Take the ferry to Manly Beach. Not only is the destination worth it and it's cheap, you get great views of the harbour, the Opera House and the Hoarbour Bridge.

“Beautiful Sydney Harbor walks/ferry”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

While staying in downtown Sydney, you must get down to the Harbor area. We walked the Harbor from the Rocks through Circular Quay, by the Opera House and through the Royal Botanic Gardens. We also took the Manley ferry right at sunset. Absolutely beautiful harbor, great views of the city (of course the perfect / warm weather also helped). A must do while in Sydney.

“City Views- Good Central Location”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

Catch a ferry and travel to the Zoo, Watsdon Bay or possibly Manly Beach. Many wonderful City Views. Stop for a beverage in a outdoor small cafe and enjoy the beautiful weather.

“One of the Best in the World”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

Sydney Harbour is a delight to just sit and watch from the shore, but if you can get out on it in a boat, even a ferry is fine, then you really get to see more of its beauty...There's a lot of it, its a big harbour, very beautiful, great for a day out on the water - can't imagine living in or visiting Sydney without spending at least one day out on the harbour.
