  Taken from the Manly Ferry.
by K.Knight

Circular Quay is the hub of Sydney Harbour, situated at a small inlet called Sydney Cove, it is a transport, leisure and recreational centre. It is made up of walkways, parks and restaurants and hosts a number of ferry quays and a train station. Ferries leave every few minutes to different parts of the harbour, including Manly, Watson Bay, Mosman and Taronga Park Zoo.
On the southern side of Circular Quay is a walkway that leads to the Sydney Opera House and Royal Botanical Gardens; while on the northern side, a short walk along lovely landscaped walkways takes you to the Harbour Bridge and The Rocks, one of the oldest, most attractive and most interesting parts of Sydney.
Alongside the ferry terminals are a number of small outdoor cafes and the area is a magnet for buskers of every description.
