Ryde the Sydney ferries for a very pleasant and extremely affordable way to see the best tourist attractions in Australia. You will enjoy a harbour cruise without the price tag.
Whether you live in the Harbour City or just visit it, make sure to hop on a ferry.
It is public transport at its best and...there's a twist: ride the waves, feel the breeze and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
You will have two experiences in one: enjoy a cruise in the harbour as well as get to your destination quickly, sometimes quicker than by car.
No red lights and heavy traffic there.
And if your destination is the Cockatoo Island, this is the only public transport available.
Circular Quay and the Rocks are a magnet for tourists.
And on your ferry ride you could pass by a majestic cruise ship anchored at the overseas terminal in Circular Quay.
Tickets are relatively cheap. And you can save with the Opal card if you are a frequent user.
You can use the MyFerry1 tickets to go to most nearby attractions such as Darling Harbour, Taronga Zoo, Milsons Point, Balmain.
To go further away to Manly or Parramatta you will need a MyFerry2.
If all you have available for your harbour visit is just one day and want to also use the bus or the rail, then buy a MyMultiDay pass. Though, if you have to go to Sydney airport by train at the end of the day, you will have to pay an additional station fee when you get there.
If that one day is Sunday and you have your kids with you, then Family Funday ticket is the way to go. For a very cheap fare per person you can use ferry, rail or any bus.
