"Take to the water" Sydney Harbour Tip by emerald125

Sydney Harbour, Sydney: 114 reviews and 163 photos

  Sydney Skyline from a ferry
by emerald125

Sydney harbour..... The number one on every visitors list! No matter what your budget there is a cruise to suit.

Sydney ferries run morning, evening and afternoon cruises starting from around $15.

Many other companies offer more elaborate and expensive cruises, ranging from morning coffee and cake outings to Opera and a la carte dining. The best known operators include Captain Cook, Matilda and Vagabond.

For real budget travellers any regular harbour ferry will do.. all that is missing is the commentary. For $13 you can purchase a daytripper ticket that allows all day travel on Sydney Public transport and includes the Manly Ferry.
