Owner description: Circular Quay is a colorful port where ferries and cruise ships board and depart, and boat watching can be as good a pastime as people watching. While street performers entertain outside, those wanting a more cultural experience can head into the Museum of Contemporary Art where a sculpture garden on the roof is as much a view as the waterways below.

“Fun place to people watch.”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

Lots of activities and people watching. Lots of street performers and didgeridoo players. Restaurants are VERY expensive here, though. We payed $5 per person as a cover charge to eat in one restaurant.

“Street entertainment galore”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

Things can get a bit hectic here as commuters blend with tourists but it is worth it to walk around and listen and watch the street performers.

“HIve of activity”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

Catch Sydney Ferries, trains or buses. Strolls to both Opera House & The Rocks & many great cafe's bars & restaurants. It's a hive of activity.
