Sydney harbour is a must visit place in Sydney. Sydney Opera House and harbour bridge is here. You can go by train bus or ferry. Nearest train station is circular quay.

What more can be said about Sydney harbour, views, blue water, history and much more. If you get an opportunity to go for a walk around the harbour then I highly recommend it.

You can spend a morning, 1\2 day here just walking around. Worth visiting as it is free. The views are great

Saw the Harbour from the air, land and sea. Amazing iconic views where ever you look and when you get out into the harbour you see it is a living vibrant entity

We took the cross-harbor ferry from Darling Harbor back to Circular Quay. The ferry to Manly is another great trip but may get you seasick, depending on conditions.
