Are you looking for a relaxing activity on your Sunday, that doesn't involve a great deal of walking around?
Try catching a Sydney Ferry from the Circular Quay Wharf, sit back and enjoy the serene views of one of the world's most beautiful harbours.
For only $2.50 (using the Sunday $2.50 unlimited travel on any Opal card), I took my adventurous 3 year old today on a ferry circuit, and he couldn't be happier!
We caught the Darling Harbour Ferry departing from Circular Quay - Wharf 5. It took us on a scenic cruise stopping at: Milsons Point, McMahons Point, Balmain East, Darling Harbour, and back to Circular Quay. The ferry itself was an attraction, with plenty of seating both inside and around the deck.
The friendly crew even entertained passengers with humorous announcements and were ready to lend a hand when asked to take family photos. And what a choice of sightseeing and photo opportunities as the ferry cruised past the Harbour Bridge, Opera House, Darling Harbour, Luna park, and some of Sydney's most beautiful waterfront suburbs, then returned again to Circular Quay.
We loved this picturesque circuit cruise, with so much to look at, and no waiting for a return ferry. Whether you are contemplating an inexpensive idea for a date, an outing with your children, or some quality alone-time, this Sydney Ferry trip is guaranteed to impress.
