Explore Sydney Harbour With Fantasea Cruising!


You can’t beat a day out on Sydney Harbour. Here are five places you can visit by on the city’s sparkling waterway, all of which are linked by a 24 Hour and 48 Hour Sydney Harbour Hopper Pass offered by Fantasea Cruising.

1. Manly

Located on the northern side of Sydney Harbour, Manly is a beach lover’s paradise, perfect for swimming, surfing or simply relaxing in the sun. While you’re there, don't forget to explore the Corso, a bustling promenade lined with shops, cafes and restaurants.

2. Watsons Bay

Situated at the harbour’s eastern edge, Watsons Bay offers an escape from the city's hustle and bustle. Enjoy a leisurely picnic in Robertson Park while taking in panoramic views of the harbour. Don't miss the historic Hornby Lighthouse, a picturesque spot for photos. Feeling peckish? Fresh seafood at Doyles on the Wharf is a must-try.

3. Taronga Zoo

Perched on the north side of the Harbour with views back towards the city, Taronga Zoo is a must-visit for animal enthusiasts. It’s home to over 4,000 creatures from around the world. Take the Sky Safari cable car to soak up those harbour views, or travel by foot to get up close with kangaroos, koalas and giraffes. Conservation and education are at the heart of this iconic zoo.

4. Darling Harbour

A vibrant waterfront precinct that offers entertainment for all ages, here you can explore the Australian National Maritime Museum, visit SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, or enjoy a stroll around the waterfront. The area also boasts a plethora of dining options, so it’s a great spot for a meal with a view.

5. Circular Quay

The beating heart of Sydney Harbour and a hub for transportation, dining, and culture. Marvel at the iconic Sydney Opera House, catch a ferry to other harbour destinations, or dine at one of the many waterfront restaurants. The Royal Botanic Garden and The Rocks historic area are also nearby, offering more opportunities for exploration.
