Always special, love it from a ferry viewing where you can appreciate the beauty and variety of the bays scattered around the harbour. I still love reading the history and stories of how the earlier explorers chose this as the base for a major city.

A must see while visiting Australia. This is a landmark. At night there are many restaurants just below the Opera House. Not to be missed

Guess you can get a ferry to Parramatta Wharf from Circular quay; thus avoiding the long road trip. Check teh timings to suit you. And from there take a Uber to Northwest Business Park. Else take a Uber end to end.

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
