|About these ratings|
Many visitors say that the Sydney Harbour is the most beautiful natural harbor in the world, and they just might be right. Blue water laps up to sandy shores over which landmarks like the Royal Botanic Gardens and the Sydney Opera House preside. Also, nearly 150 miles of shoreline encompasses more than 30 square miles of water, adding "humongous" to the harbor's list of superlatives as well.
One TripAdvisor user recommends "the Manly ferry for a trip right across the harbor, and great beach-side restaurants." Another says that finding a place to sit and take in the scene (preferably with a local beer) is one of Sydney's quintessential experiences.
You can enjoy the harbour from many different locales, and the Botanical Gardens and the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge offer some of the most scenic and peaceful spots.
