Circular Quay, Sydney: 89 reviews and 201 photos

  The view from Circular Quay
by AmazingAdventures

From here, you can get just about anywhere you need to go in Sydney pretty easily. The ferries leave from here, the train stops here, there are lots of busses in this area and of course you can easily walk to The Rocks, The Opera House, The Bridge or a variety of restaurants (ka-ching $$) or souvenir shops. You will also find a helpful Visitor Info Office here too.

Grab a coffee, a tea or a beer, be warned however that these places are a bit pricey due to their location. Even a few blocks away, you will find more reasonable prices for a bite to eat or a drink. Souvenirs are everywhere and even McDonalds (they call it "Maccas' here) is only a block or two away.

It would be hard to miss Circular Quay on your visit to Sydney, as it is such a central point. Great vantage point for photos as well. Bring your walking shoes!

Directions: This is the area right on the waterfront, between the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. Accessible by foot, bus, car, bike, ferry and train.
