Add a couple of nights to stay in the heart of Sydney. The Circular Quay area is next to the main port with convenient access to Sydney's excellent water taxis and Train systems. It walking distance to them, plus walking distance to the iconic Sydney Opera House, botanical gardens, and the Rocks (shopping/dining).

Whats not to like? As with San Francisco, Auckland, HongKong etc we were there for two days. Yes, we visited the bridge, the opera house, blue mountains, Featherdale Park (kangaroos and much more) , Manly beach etc. Too much to do, so little time

We went 5 days early and stayed at the Holiday Inn in the Rocks then at Potts Point. Walked across the Harbor Bridge. Took the train to the Blue Mts. one day which I highly recommend - then just take the hop on bus. Went to Manley for a day and went to Bondi.

BEST CITY IN THE WORLD !!! Enjoy a day in this great city and see all it has to offer. Plenty of short trips or just enjoy the spectacular view from the banks on the harbour.

If you are wanting to see the harbour from the Bridge, don't pay to climb over it just head for the South Pylon closest to the ferry terminal side via the walking deck and enter at the base. Walk up the stairs and costs $15 for a great view and presentation at the top. Worth the effort. Then walk across to the north side and catch a train back. Also, take the scenic Parramatta River cat ferry from Circular Quay to Parramatta and back (or walk to the train and come back to Sydney that way). Allow 2-3 hours...cost about $15 all day travel. Manly ferry is also very good way to see the harbour...30 min each way. Have a meal in Manly.

Early morning Sydney was stunning! We opened our curtains on the lady morning to see the opera house in all its glory 😍 loved being able to walk to the train station to get home 😊

We stayed in Sydney three days ahead of the cruise and learned how the trains and buses worked. Got an Opal card and used the ferry to Manly Beach. Took an excursion to the Blue Mountains. Took in Featherdale Park feeding the animals, rode the rides in Scenic World, saw the Three Sisters and great scenery, rode on the Parametta River under the Sydney Harbor Bridge, ate meat pies at Harry's, explored Chinatown, toured the city doing the free walking tours at the Rocks and in the Royal Botanical Garden and Observatory. We had a fabulous time. We could have easily stayed a few more days visiting the attractions. Got to see the Sculptures by the Sea on Bondi Beach and enjoyed the walks around the beach. Saw the Sydney Opera House special show on the sails at night. We had fun. All of our tours were on our own at the various ports on this cruise because we like to make our own adventures and find it more affordable for four people. We love exploring new places and learning how to do thing...

We were at a distant port and didn't get good information about the walk to the opera house. They also stopped transportation early and we had to take at $40 cab ride back to the ship in traffic (we went to see My Fair Lady). We loved Sydney, but make sure you get good information and directions.
