    Take all the Ferry trips around the Harbour - there's 65 miles of shore line in Sydney Harbour - that you possibly can. Walk across the Coat-Hanger (the Bridge) you can it's free. visit all the Beaches, they too are free. By Aussie Law, all citizens have the right of access to the water.
    Take the night ferry trip around the Harbour, dine & dance as you cruise among the lights of the City.

  • must see: the Sydney harbour,...

    by trev_lou Written Feb 25, 2003

    must see: the Sydney harbour, opera house etc; spend a day or more exploring the Blue Mountains - go up as far as Blackheath if the weather is good. Katoomba has great coffee shops and lots of tourists to chat with and compare notes.

    Of course the most popular...

    by Josh_Melanie Written Aug 24, 2002

    Of course the most popular things to see in Sydney are the Opera house and Sydney Harbour Bridge. Recently they have started doing bridge climbs for those of you who are a little more adventurous. For quite a large sum you can climb to the top of the Sydney harbour bridge. If you are game, do it, I think it would be very interesting. Across the bridge there is Manly and also Taronga Park Zoo. At Taronga Zoo you will get to see all kinds of crazy Australian animals such as Kangaroos, Koalas, wombats and dingos. If you are looking for a great beach, try Bondi. It is big and full of tourists but it is a great beach. If you would prefer a less populated beach head south to Coogee or Maroubra. If you are not very comfortable with the waves at the beach, head further south and you will come to Malabar, Little Bay, Yarra Bay and La Perouse. Here you will have the benefit of swimming in the ocean without having to deal with the crowds and the waves. While in Sydney, I recommend you take a train ride to the Blue Mountains and spend a few days there. This area is full of mountains and beautiful waterfalls.

    Visiting the wharfs

    Visiting the wharfs (maybe starting by Circular Quay - 'key')
    If you like a seaside city, this is the first place to see after arriving to Sydney. Also if you want to move in one of the miriad ferries connecting different neighbourhoods of the city... or just watch for the activity while you enjoy your holidays while having some refreshments on a terrace bar :)

    Cruise first class aboard the famous Captain Cook Cruises' modern fleet of vessels. Indoor and outdoor viewing decks provide the perfect venue for morning or afternoon coffee or luncheon - the best way to see Sydney! In the evening, choose from an elegant dinner dance afloat, or the fun of Showtime, with a talented cast of singers and dancers retelling our past from the time of bushrangers and convicts to our modern city.

    Sydney Harbour Aquarium Cruise departs daily 9.30am, 11am, 2.30pm and 4pm. Adult $26, concession $15 (includes entrance fee to Aquarium).
    Experience the best of Sydney Harbour 'above and below the waves' with this cruise around the foreshores for one hour. Disembark at the Sydney Aquarium wharf and come face to face with over 5000 aquatic animals.

    This is a picture from the Heads, the way to the Harbour of Sydney, a very small one. Thats the reason that Sydney is late discovered, the sailors can not see that it is a natural entrance.
