Great place for a stroll all the day. Special view either in the morning or in the evening. And can enjoy great view to the opera house.

The cheapest way to do this is by using the Manly Ferry or the ferry to the Taronga Zoo. The trip in both cases gives excellent vioews of both the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. .

Get a ferry to Manly and enjoy the views.. or go Whale watching during May to November. The Sydney Opera House at night time is magical

No visit to Sydney is complete until you have walked around the harbour and experienced the museums, cafes, restaurants and the stunning views.

One cannot come to Sydney and not walk the harbor area. Definitely packed with people on a weekend. Enjoy!

The best way of experiencing the harbour was to catch ferries and sit on the quay watching everyone running by.

One of the most famous views in the world. Visit the opera house and walk across the bridge - you can get the ferry back. Great views from Mrs Macquarie's chair.

Sorry I stayed with a fren in Sydney so I can't recommend. Frankly, I think there s no need to stay near the Barbour to enjoy the activities around it as Sydney has a good transportation network

There's a nudist beach at Watsons Bay, next to Sydney Heads. Not sure how legal it is, but it's been there for years.
