Sydney Harbour

One of the most beautiful waterways in the world, Sydney Harbour is the city’s glittering pride and joy. It offers plenty to experience, whether you’re looking to cruise out over the 54 square kilometres of water or explore some of the 240 kilometres of shoreline.

Catching a Sydney Ferry is an easy and affordable way to get out on the harbour and a fantastic day out includes a ferry-ride from Circular Quay to iconic destinations such as Taronga Zoo or Manly. These ferries sweep past the Bridge and Opera House, before giving you a dazzling perspective on beautiful harbour-side suburbs, bushland and beaches.

Of course, there are many other ways to experience Sydney Harbour. You could try the famous Manly to Spit coastal walk, for example, with its stunning panoramas, or take a lift to the top of Centrepoint Tower, to take in the sweep of the water from a uniquely lofty position.

However you wish to enjoy it, the Harbour is a dazzling jewel, with many facets for everyone to explore!
