Lived in Sydney all my life.
Love everything about it.

And 22 years later, I still come here on weekends and grab some fish and chips from the local shop and just sit at circular Quay and watch everything pass by.

By far one of my all time favourite experiences of my life.

I was lucky enough to travel to Sydney when they had the light festival called "Vivid Sydney" on. The harbour bridge and Opera House were all lit up and looked absolutely amazing. I took a boat cruise around the harbour with Sydney showboats and it was the highlight of my trip.

So much to do, so many places to do it! There is a little of everything here and it is such a beautiful natural harbour. A little more expensive than other places downtown, but the ambience makes up for it. Take the ferry to Manly - it's a great trip, and the destination is well worth the visit.

This is magnificent. One of the best harbors I have ever seen. Use the ferry to Manly to better see it, it is worth it.
