Whats not to like about Sydney Harbour whether strolling along the shore looking out at it or out on it for a ferry ride to Manly rocking & rolling past the Heads. Sitting in one of the many restaurants enjoying the view.

We find one of the most enjoyable Harbour trips is to take the Ferry from Circular Quay to Watsons Bay, the bus to Bondi then return to Watson Bay for the ferry ride back to Circular Quay

This was a lovely way to see the harbour and enjoy a delicious dinner as well. Great view of the sunset and the Opera House from the water side.

Hi. I would walk beyond the ocean liner berths to under the Harbour Bridge. Great views, especially early morning, when the angle of the sun gives great lighting.
