Top 5

Catch the Manly Ferry

Catch the Manly Ferry from Circular Quay for great views of the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. If you head east through the Manly 'Corso' you will quickly discover Manly Beach, from there a right turn and a short walk will be rewarded by the sight of the delightful Fairy Bower and the inviting Shelly Beach.

North Head

Beautiful North Head is a special place with a long and interesting history but most people just go there for the breathtaking views of the harbour. Follow this link for more about Manly, North Head and other must see attractions.

Harbour Cruise

If you like some commentary it is a good idea to go on a cruise to explore the harbour. If you don't want to be on the water for very long you could just catch the ferry to Darling Harbour from Circular Quay. The trip only lasts a few minutes and will take you under the awesome Harbour Bridge.
