Sydney Harbour is one of Australia's most prominent assets, and why wouldn't it be? Whether the vista is the gorgeous cityscape at sunrise or the beautiful coves around the harbour by sunset, this location won't disappoint. Luna Park, the Sydney Opera House and Cockatoo Island are just a few that should be on that to do list. With transport galore,... More

Whoever comes to Sydney and not come here for a visit MUST be mad! haha! This place is easily accessible by Train.

I love the northern beaches so highly recommend taking the ferry to Manly and getting off and going for a walk to visit the many hotels (restaurant/bars).

I started at "the Rocks" and walked around the perimeter of the circular quay, past the ferries, along the walkway to the Opera House. There are many shops and restaurants with specials for those who want to take their time. Lots of places to sit down and watch the water traffic. A nice way to spend a few hours.
