What more could you want, The Sydney Harbour Bridge, The Opera House, harbour islands including Goat, Shark and Clark, Fort Denison. If you want to cruise to 3 islands in the one day do the National Parks 3 islands tour.

Hi. I would walk beyond the ocean liner berths to under the Harbour Bridge. Great views, especially early morning, when the angle of the sun gives great lighting.
