One of the busiest and most beautiful places in Sydney with its iconic Opera House and the Circular Quay containing many restaurants and small shops. Also on the harbor is the botanical gardens which is a great place to stroll and get some exercise.

Sydney harbour is an awesome place to spend some time when visiting Sydney. It offers some many options for leisure, dining, water sports activities etc, etc. With a good pubic transport in Sydney getting to and fro is very easy!
