While on Sydney Harbour, take in the views of the city and the Sydney Harbour National Park, which intersperses homes and other buildings lining the foreshores. There are beaches too, as well as harbours for sailing yachts and motorboats.
Near the center of the harbour is Sydney Cove, where the First Fleet prisoners and their guards were to settle. Here you will find Circular Quay, The Rocks, the Museum of Contemporary Arts and of course, the Sydney Opera House.
Nor far from here is the Royal Botanic Garden, Fort Denison, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and behind Circular Quay is the City Central Business District (CBD). Darling Harbour, the city’s premier entertainment district is just further west.
