    We hired a water taxi from Darling Harbour for a 2 hour tour. Our first stop was Circular Quay to visit the iconic Opera House. The taxi then picked us back up to continue cruising the Sydney Cove, underneath the Harbour Bridge, Port Denison, Taronga Park Zoo and a close view of Opera House from many angles. We requested to ...

    1 review

    This cinema is centrally located if you're visiting Sydney and staying near the Central Business District. It's located on the Opera Quays, near the Opera House. It's great to have a meal at one of the cool restaurants or bars (kinda pricey here though) on the Opera Quays and then wander in for a film. They have some blockbuster American ...

    Sydney Harbour Bridge

    I have to admit, I didn't think climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge was that cool. Everyone said I MUST do this in Sydney, and I was on the fence given it costs around $225 USD. I saw so many beautiful photos of people on the bridge with the Opera House in the background and never wanted to regret not doing ...

    Must-see in Sydney! Iconic harbor area with ferry boats and street performers everywhere. It reminds me a little bit of the Pier 39 area of San Francisco. Great place to sit with a friend and people watch for an afternoon!

    Most cities have a botanic garden, and I've walked through many of them: London, Melbourne, Christchurch, Vienna, Queenstown. Sydney's didn't seem too particularly unique, but I strolled through them anyway, because I could not get enough of the enticing summer sunshine and sparkling harbor in this city. The sprawling lawns are perfect for lovers and picnics (or both), and they ...

    Sydney Aquarium

    39 reviews

    On my last night in Sydney, I decided to take the train to the harbour and walk around the aquarium. The Sydney Aquarium is most impressive, not just in size, but in the many different species they house there. They had a shark exhibit that was really cool along with an exhibit filled with coral reef fish. I went later ...

    Circular Quay

    0.27 mi from Government House
    36 reviews

    One of the prominent areas in the city, Circular Quay is the action-packed stretch between the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. Museums, restaurants, walkways and promenades, and the tourism center fill this "key," and you could easily spend the entire day just walking around and soaking up Sydney culture.

    A very expensive and very touristy way to see the views of the harbour. Unfortunately, no cameras of any kind are allowed and you will pay dearly for the "official" snapshots of the climb. Recommendation is to do the climb at night or at sunset so that you can see the harbour and buildings light up, though this will most ...

    The Sydney Tower Eye is a great way to scope out Sydney. There are great views of the harbor and the bridges. Go at sunset for a spectacular show. You can buy combination tickets for many Sydney attractions, including the Tower Eye, to get significant deep discounts. The Westfield Mall is at the base of the tower.
