"Catch a Ferry" Sydney Harbour Tip by jabandowitz

Sydney Harbour, Sydney: 113 reviews and 161 photos

One of the cheapest and best ways to view Sydney Harbour is to catch a ferry from Circular Quay to Manly and Back. In only costs a few dollars and you can fully experience entering the harbour by boat with the opera house to your left, the bridge straight ahead, and water all around... it's brilliant. A return trip might take 1hr 20 min.

Address: Circular Quay
Directions: Take a train to Circular Quay Station. If you're coming from anywhere other than the city via train you will need to change at central and connect to a 'city circle' train (they run every few minutes).

Once at Circular Quay the ferries are right there.
