Sydney is a tourist haven.
The Sydney Opera House
The Opera House is in Circular Quay. Designed for an acoustical achievement. But it is a photographers highlight. A tourist plus! Ideal for tourists to take a great photo. By day it’s stunning and by night the views are amazing.
Take a photo from outside the Opera House or from the Harbour Bridge.
You can walk and sit around the outside . Just relaxing and taking in the harbour views.
There are performances to attend and tours of the Opera House. If behind the scenes interests you. There are two-hour backstage tours.
Sydney Harbour Bridge
You can walk across the Bridge, climb the towers and even walk across the top. But most of all take photos of the bridge and from the bridge. It’s a tourist all round winner! Built in around 1932 and peaks at 134 metres (440 feet) above sea level. The top of the bridge tours are safe and need no special climbing skills. Just enjoy the view! Because of the single arch structural appearance. the bridge is nicknamed the ‘Coat Hanger.’

Manly Ferry Ride
Manly is great for shopping, wining and dining. One of the real tourist attraction is the 30 minute ferry ride. Departing from Circular Quay, onboard you will see the Harbour Bridge, the Opera House and experience the size of the Harbour. We recommend standing outside for the beast views and photos. If you have enough time do it twice. Once by day and the other by night. Or a compromise with one trip in the day and returning by night.
