Owner description: Circular Quay is a colorful port where ferries and cruise ships board and depart, and boat watching can be as good a pastime as people watching. While street performers entertain outside, those wanting a more cultural experience can head into the Museum of Contemporary Art where a sculpture garden on the roof is as much a view as the waterways below.

Waited at Circular Quay while one of our party did the Bridge Climb (fantastic!!).. live music, pleasant ambience, relaxed. A great break in the bustle that is CBD Sydney

At Circular Quay you have a lot of nice places to have lunch. Also you can change busses there or walk up the streets and enjoy the shops etc.

Circular Quay is the closest train station to the Opera House and to the Harbour Bridge (although Wynyard station to the Bridge is also reasonably close). The Quay itself is not much, but provides access and nice views to the Opera House, Bridge and the Rocks, so plenty to see and do nearby and lots of dining options.
