Sydney is one of those cities I just love being in, wandering the streets, sailing the waterways and taking in the bold and brassy spectacle of high-rise and harbour sights.
Although there are plenty of high priced harbour cruises on offer, for just a few dollars you can jump on one of the harbour ferries and spend as much time out on the water as you like.
The Manly Ferry is my favorite with over an hour on the water (return trip) with fantastic views of the Sydney Opera House, the Sydney Harbour Bridge, yachts at play, views out through the heads and of course all those million dollar properties vying for waterfront views along the way.
It’s kind of amusing watching the local commuters treat the Sydney Harbour Ferries just like a bus service as they sit inside, reading their papers (yes some still do) or engrossed in their devices missing all that wonder passing by.
