I travel overseas A LOT. But spending time down at Sydney harbour with the bustling crowds and tourists was awesome today. Got me thinking about the history of our young nation. Lots of good food down there and the place is just gorgeous!

After living in Sydney as a child and teenager I wasn't anticipating to be so awestruck with the Harbour. Absolutely incredible! Booking a cruise on the harbour is a must do to get the full effect.

Gorgeous place to visit, near the Circular Quay with its food spots and wharf, and a stroll to the nearby Rocks which is the historical centre of Sydney. Also, stroll across the Harbour Bridge - 20 minute walk.

I've been to Istanbul, St Petersburg and Alexandria. All boast great harbours but non compare to the size and beauty of Sydney harbour. The green, clean slopes of the harbour, the natural design of the inlets, the islands and landmarks. They are all just places...More

Guess you can get a ferry to Parramatta Wharf from Circular quay; thus avoiding the long road trip. Check teh timings to suit you. And from there take a Uber to Northwest Business Park. Else take a Uber end to end.
