  Sydney Opera House as seen from the Harbour
by AmazingAdventures

With Sydney being one of the most beautiful and breath taking waterfronts & harbours in the world, I highly recommend taking in the view of the harbour from a boat.

There are lots of options, the Sydney Ferries, Matilda, and others. There arfe also sightseeing cruises, lunch and dinner cruises too.

I've gone on two cruises of the harbour and recommend them both. One was the afternoon cruise, it's 2 and a half hours, and very relaxing. It's fully narrated with music too. Lots of interesting info without being too irritating. The cruise goes by many of the exclusive neighborhoods, and matches scenery with history.

I've also gone on the Sydney Ferries evening cruise, and it was also very relaxing. It's inspiring to watch the harbour under the glow of the moonlight and lights of the city. Very peaceful, even though it is fully narrated.

It's nice to see the Harbour Bridge and Opera House from the water as well, adds another perspective to htis beautiful city.

Make sure you have plenty of batteries for your camera

Address: Start at Circular Quay
Directions: Most cruises depart from Cicular Quay, there are many to choose from!
