  • Great views and lively crowd of people walking up and down the harbor. There are several restaurants located on the harbor offering various views of the city. Ferris wheel is probably offer the best views. There is even a nightclub off the water. Enjoyed the cleanliness. Don't forget to bring your walking shoes!
  • Fantastic. Quiet, comfortable, and social if you want. Well organized. The perfect getaway from all the hubbub, yet centrally located with scenic views of all the happenings. I would definitely recommend this for a leisurely, satisfying view of beautiful Sydney. A+
