It is the closest place to experience the Heads or the entry to Sydney Harbour. If you don't have a car just take a fast ferry and then you can dine at a number of really good fish restaurants or cafes. Then you can take...More

We caught the ferry from Circular Quay. It's only $2.50 per person return on a Sunday. The kids loved it! Very family friendly place to enjoy fish and chips on the wharf, and a nice little gated park.

Beautiful area. Nice to get away from the city and go along the coast to look at the amazing view. We went to the beach after that. We swam, got burned, and went to a restaurant near by . Good for friends and families.

We are booking in for Doyle's and am trying to find the time of the last ferry back to the city. It's looks like 9.30 but want to be sure before we confirm booking.

The F7 Eastern suburbs ferry ferries from circular quay to watson bay n opal card can be used. I saw the time table n the earliest ferry is around 10 in the morning. But theres no timing available for weekends dates. Does this means that on weekends we have to take the private ferry there? How do we purchase the tickets? N how do i get the time table?

Wharf 6 and watch the monitor for A or B side. Not sure about time. You can use Opal Card.
