Harbour cruises

Sydney Harbour (or, more properly, Port Jackson) is famed as one of the greatest and most beautiful natural harbours in the world.

To appreciate its majesty, and get the best views of the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, take a harbour cruise. Boats leave from Circular Quay (between the Opera House and Bridge).

The most popular excursion goes from Circular Quay to Manly, Sydney's best beach resort, where there's a good range of places to eat, drink and shop, plus the Oceanworld aquarium (big sharks, Barrier Reef sealife, venomous snakes).

Alternatively, by hiring a water taxi you can take a picnic to Shark, Goat, Clark and Rodd Islands in the middle of the harbour, which form part of the National Parks and Wildlife Service.
