About beautiful Sydney Harbour

Surrounded by hundreds of kilometres of shoreline, national parks and historic sites, the sparkling waters of Sydney Harbour are synonymous with Australia’s most famous city. Alive with ferries, yachts and kayaks, one of the world’s great natural harbours is also a gateway to other parts of Sydney.

A delightful way to experience its beauty is to catch an iconic Sydney ferry. Passing by famed landmarks, including the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the harbour offers plenty of scenic vantage points. Follow the Manly, Watsons Bay or Taronga Zoo ferry routes to enjoy panoramic harbour views.

Take advantage of a sunny Sydney day by relaxing on a chartered yacht in one of the harbour’s bays or unwind on a chartered cruise vessel departing from Circular Quay or Darling Harbour. Head out on foot and enjoy a short scenic tour around the harbour, or spend an evening dining aboard a cruise boat.

The islands located within Sydney Harbour, including Fort Denison, Shark, Clark, Rodd, Goat and Cockatoo Islands, hold both great cultural and historical significance. Cockatoo Island is one of 11 Australian convict sites included on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Explore the harbour and the islands at your own pace aboard one of the hop-on, hop-off ferry services.

Sydney Harbour National Park incorporates many of the harbour’s islands as well as large stretches of foreshore, ideal for a harbourside walk or guided walking tours with likes of Sydney Coast Walks, EcoTreasures and Auswalk Walking Holidays.
