"SOMETHING A BIT DIFFERENT" Circular Quay Tip by DennyP
Circular Quay, Sydney: 88 reviews and 199 photos
Another thing to do at CUSTOMS HOUSE is.. when you walk into the foyer there is a glass floor and underneath it is a fantastic model of the Sydney CBD..(Commercial Business District) .This is extremely well done and is excellent for a visitor to see where one is and the way to get to another city destination..also it gives one an idea of the distance if you are walking...as I do...Most Sydneysiders don't even know of this place..Here also you can get a coffee and sit and read the daily paper from your city in a quiet surrounding...just great place to sit and relax after maybe long walks in the area... NB:try and take photos without flash to avoid reflections off the glass floor..(if possible use a polarising filter to stop reflection)...There is also a library here upstairs that quite often has photo exhibitions etc..being a libary there are computers to use if needed..and in this lovely old building is the interesting history of the Australian Customs and Immigration Department..
Address: CUSTOMS HOUSE..OPPOSITE #4 WHARF CIRCULAR QUAY..
Directions: Directly across the road from #4 Wharf..Big attractive early stone building..
