The Manly ferry is the easiest and cheapest way to view Sydney Harbour !

With tickets at about the same cost as a coffee and cake you can afford to take the whole family.

One of the main reasons the Manly Ferry is so popular the world over is because it is one of the best ways to see all the Sydney Icons in one trip.... the Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Fort Denison....

You certainly want to have the camera handy.

There are 2 services departing from Circular Quay.

The main ferry runs 7 days a week and holds approx 1000 people (no vehicles).... the trip takes 30mins

There is also a fast ferry service, which takes half the time, and runs in peak commuter periods.

If you need a little sustenance, you can always purchase a hot tea or coffee with a sandwich on board to enjoy while the harbour unfolds before you.

The great thing is, the adventure continues when you reach Manly.

Apart from the magnificent beaches, there are over 200 stores to explore from the largest surf offer in the southern hemisphere, to stunning boutiques, 100 venues with sensational flavours to savour, and activities for all the family.

And it’s all conveniently located just as you step off the ferry.
