While it's a must do to see the harbour from around The Rocks and Darling Harbour, to get an idea of what the original enchantment was all about you need to get about as far away from those two sites as possible.
An activity I would recommend is to head for the north shore where the nooks and crannies of the little bays lend a serene enchantment unavailable in the hustle and bustle of the CBD. Out on the harbour or walking the north side gives you at times spectacular views and you'll also see some of the natural animals (pic 2) that you won't get walking down George Street.
Hopefully these pictures give you some idea of what's in store.

Directions: North shore, to the east of the harbour bridge

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
