I've said before on numerous times on this blog that Sydney is my favourite city in the world. There are many reasons for this - the beaches; the spectacular sights; the nightlife. Another is the harbour. I love being beside the water, and when I lived there over ten years ago, once a week I treated myself to a trip home on one of the city's ferries.
The ferries leave from Circular Quay. It's inevitable that you'll end up there at some stage if you visit Australia's most famous city as it's also where you'll find two of the country's most famous sights - the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Here there are four wharves with ferries departing for landmarks such as Taronga Zoo and Darling Harbour along with well known suburb such as Watson's Bay and Manly.
The ferry I took home once a week left from Wharf No 4 to Rose Bay, before jumping on a feeder bus to Bondi Beach. They were good days. When I was there last December I made sure to take them as much as possible. I advise you do the same.
