Aireal view photo of Sydney Cove at the Foot of the City. The Sydney Opera House stands out boldly on the harbour and to the left (west) is Sydney Cove. Nearby are the Royal Botanic Gardens and Government House, while crossing the Harbour Bridge takes you to North Sydney and beyond.
Sydney is still the main gateway to Australia for international arrivals. Combined with the harbour, its many beaches and nearby natural parklands to the north, south and east, makes the city a rewarding destination for world travellers.
Cruising Sydney Harbour
Catching a ride on the ferry is a great way to explore other parts of Sydney. Ferries and Jetcats travel regularly from Circular Quay to places like Parramatta, Balmain, Darling Harbour, the Homebush Olympic Site and Manly Beach. You can also catch a ferry to Taronga Zoo from here.
For an even closer look at this city, try one of the many Sydney harbour cruises. On New Years Eve, the harbour is packed with flotillas of boats, cruises and ferries to take in the fireworks in true 3d vision and surround sound. It will be a long time before they can replicate this experience in a digital format.
