Favorite thing: Snaking their way around the harbour, the ferry routes slip into coves and visit headlands with real estate perched atop that I could only dream about affording. The ferries are like a spider's web fanning out from Circular Quay, mainly heading for the North Shore but dipping into many other wharves as well.

Fondest memory: Picture a 20 degree day, soft rippling water, a zephyr of a breeze and you're cruising on a cheap ferry ride on one of the world's great harbours. If you're thinking life doesn't get much better, you're right.
If you spend a minimum one day in Sydney, this is one of your "must-do"s.
Shown here is the ferry about to dock at Cremorne Point with Sydney Harbour Bridge in the background, another of Sydney's famous arteries, while in pic 2 you can see where the ferries berth at Watsons Bay and in pic 3 there's the back of a ferry at Circular Quay.
