About Sydney, Australia

Say 'G'day' to one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Stroll along the world-famous Bondi and Watsons Beaches. Tour the Sydney Opera House on Bennelong Point, shop for Aboriginal art, or go on a photographic safari. This diverse land is home to crocodiles, koalas, emus, and, of course, kangaroos.

What people said about this port:

"Opera House is stunning inside and out." in 11 reviews.

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.

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.

If you stay at the holiday Inn in Old Town , there is no need to take a cab off the ship. We laughed the wheels on the cab didn't make a full rotation

Yes. It was a flash flood so we just road the bus around town. Didn't get off much. I'm still giving it 5 stars - only God controls the weather. Driver was safe with engaging tour guide.
