Wharf Street pretty much gets you everywhere. East on Wharf Street take you to Store Street with lots pf shops and China Town. West on Wharf takes you long the waterfront to afternoon tea at the Empress or tour of the Parliament Buildings.

We docked and had some time to spend so we took the (well) signposted route around the Wharf. Spend $5 on some scraps of fish and the Harbour Seal will put on a show for you. Have a wander amongst the houseboats UNIQUE.
