An iconic part of Australia where people come to drink in the sites. There are many locations to sit to relax, get that gorgeous photo or play, as well as restaurant to feed at.

Guess you can get a ferry to Parramatta Wharf from Circular quay; thus avoiding the long road trip. Check teh timings to suit you. And from there take a Uber to Northwest Business Park. Else take a Uber end to end.
