Many difference dinner cruising departs from the pier around 5:30pm. Mine went on for four hours cruising within the port and served dinner. Magnificent view before sunset. 夕刻からのディナークルーズを楽しみました、サンセット前のオペラハウス等、美しい港の風景等心地よい海風が最高でした。

Rio de Janeiro, San Francisco, Vancouver have magnificent harbours, and Sydney matches or surpasses each of those. Whether looking at it from one of its many shore vantage points, or experiencing its beauty on the water, Sydney Harbour never ceases to amaze. Criss-crossing the harbour on the numerous ferries is another very reasonably priced activity. Sydney Harbour matches the best!... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
