Sydney is the state capital of New South Wales and the most populous city in Australia. It is located on Australia’s southeast coast of the Tasman Sea. With a population of 4.6 million people it is the largest Australian city ahead of Melbourne and its 4.1 million inhabitants.

Established in 1788 as a penal colony, the city was built on the hills surrounding the harbour. The harbour bridge and the Sydney Opera are the two well-known city icons.

1. A ride through the Sydney harbor to Manly

Take an early morning ferry to Manly, it’s a 45 minutes ride, note the open Ocean swell as you pass the mouth of the bay. In Manly enjoy breakfast in this quite place. Walk to the beach and return to catch a ferry back to Circular quay.

On the way back go to the front of the ferry and imagine you arrive for the first time in Sydney, watch the Harbour bridge and the iconic Opera grow as you near them.

2. Around the Opera and the Royal Botanical Garden

From Circular Quay walk over to the Opera and continue to the Royal Botanical garden. It contains an incredible collection of wonderful trees and plants. Then return to Circular Quay to catch the blue hop on hop off bus line to Watson point.

3. On the way to Watson point (Bay mouth) and Bondi beach

The bus ride to Watson point is interesting in itself; when you get there make the short walk that will take you to a great viewpoint over the south side of the Bay mouth.

Return to catch the bus and go to Bondi beach. Walk about on the beach and enjoy a drink at the local restaurants by the beach. Do not miss the last bus back to Circular Quay and have dinner and fun at The Rocks next to harbor.

Enjoy the day…
