Wonderful spot in a wonderful city - the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge are just two of the wonderful sites in this magnificent spot. Try to go on a harbour cruise and soak up the other parts of this natural beauty. A beaut.

Save your money, don't use a tour boat just catch the ferry to Manly, and back. If you have a second day, go inland, catch the public ferry to Parramatta.
