“Sydney Harbour”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Extraordinary beautiful. Also great vibe around the area. The Sydney Opera House is an architectural feat, as well as being extremely pleasing to the eyes. It is also interesting to go on an escorted tour of the Opera House. There is an amazing vibe around this area, an many people visit on a daily basis. Just across from the Opera House is the wonderful Sydney Harbour Bridge. The combination of the two iconic features, blend together well and enhance the harbour. Nearby is the Contemporary Art Gallery with a cafe that has a wonderful view overlooking both attractions, whilst relaxing and enjoying a break, and take advantage of the galleries displays. After 14 year of living in Sydney, this is still my favourite site, which is visit regularly. There are also buskers who perform, or play music which adds to the appeal. Nearby is The Rocks which is steeped in history of Sydney, and has markets.

“One of a Kind”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Only Sydney Harbour has all the history and beauty that one can find in a natural haven for man and ship. A cruise on the harbour with lunch and a glass of bubbly is worth 10 other harbour cruises anywhere. From Circular Quay to Manly Wharf is 7 miles of cruise and a million miles from care. Go for it!

“Best sight seeing adventure in the world.”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

A truly wonderful experience. Do the bridge climb....a breath taking experience. Visit the Opera House & take a Ferry ride to the Zoo & then have lunch at Doyle's at Watsons Bay.
Don't forget old Sydney town, known today as the "Rocks"....fabulous dining & wonderful gifts for the travelers.

“Sydney harbour”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Never get tired of spending time on the harbour, a must is a walk around opera house and drinks in the opera bar. Then take a train to milsons point and walk back over the bridge. We always stop off in the rocks for a drink or two.
