travelling around the CBD on ferries is fun but time consuming as there are limited seats and limited trips in an hour. But it's worth it if you want to get the full view of the Sydney CBD, Harbour Bridge and landscapes...

Skip the pricey tour boats and take the ferries instead. The Manley Ferry will take you past all the harbor highlights for a cheap amount. Get an Opal card and you're ready to go!

Take a Ferry ride across the harbor and out to Manly. Lots of great cafes and restaurants to have lunch at and a great beach to visit.

Spend the day outdoors and catch a ferry from Circular Quay to various islands. Take a picnic with you. You can easily spend a few hours exploring and soaking up the sun.
