08 Oct “ Would you climb 134m to see the dizzying sights of Sydney?”
Sydney’s Circular Quay is the hub of Australia’s most vibrant city. Encircling Sydney’s beautiful harbour, the Quay is the ideal spot for visitors to soak up the ambience of the city. With the skyline dominated by the majestic Harbour Bridge and the iconic Opera House, strategically positioned on Bennelong Point, the site of the landing of the First Fleet in 1788, a stroll around the Quay provides perfect opportunities to capture photos of these world famous landmarks, along with stunning views of the harbour and the city.
Circular Quay also offers a smorgasbord of culinary experiences from snack bars and cafes to world-class restaurants. Although always humming with locals utilising the transport interchange of trains, buses and ferries, on weekends the Quay really resonates with a rich cosmopolitan flavour and the added attraction of talented street performers entertaining visitors to the area.
Circular Quay has been a busy transport hub since the earliest days of the colony and visitors can take a ferry ride to Taronga Zoo or Manly, where you can enjoy a stroll along the beach. Alternatively, there are water taxis or you can experience the exhilaration of a jet boat ride. For a more sedate alternative you can enjoy a leisurely lunch, dinner or afternoon tea cruise of the harbour, offering glimpses of some of Australia’s most exclusive real estate. From the Quay you can also catch a bus to Sydney’s renowned Bondi Beach or catch a train for a short journey to the city.
The more adventurous can opt to climb the Harbour Bridge, although this option does require a reasonable level of fitness. Bridge climbs, which are conducted with a professional guide and groups of 12-14 offer sublime views of the surroundings and afar afield as the beautiful Blue Mountains.
