“Spectacular views in all directions”
Reviewed 24 August 2012

Title says it all -- take time to walk around, especially near The Rocks.
In addition to the beauty, there were lots of street performers.

Standing tall is the iconic Sydney Opera House, with the below harbour bustling with bars, cafes and restaurants.

“If you only have time for one thing, this is a must”
Reviewed 24 August 2012

Sydney Harbour is what Sydney is famous for and you can see it very cheaply from any ferry which leaves Circular Quay. If you choose a clear day you'll get great pictures of the Opera House and the Harbour bridge.

If you have a little more time and money you should take one of the Harbour cruises - Magistic or Captain Cook and you will be shown more of the harbour with lunch or coffee.

You can see the harbour also just by walking around Curcular Quay to the Opera House or walking around by the rocks. Costs nothing this way.
