Location: Sydney Harbour
Many would argue that the Sydney Harbour which is a 54 sq. km oasis as the heart of Sydney. That the harbour is considered one of the world's most beautiful harbour is not without merit. Visitors to the harbour will be spellbound by the ever changing colors of the water. In the summer, it can go from brilliant blue to murky grey under heavy clouds. The churning boats and ships that are ever present in the harbour makes it one of the few sights visitors can enjoy.
Sydney Harbour was the site that Captain Phillip Cook chose to settle when he found the first site Botany Bay to be inhabitable. The natural harbour, protected from the gusty winds and tide proved to be one of the most ideal harbour in the world and the First Fleet quickly began settling down.
One of the great icons of Sydney can be found here, in the form of the Sydney Harbour Bridge where visitors are encouraged to take a walk from one end to the other. The best way to view the bridge directly from under is to take a cruise under the bridge.
TIPS: For a great picnic spot, Dawes Point under the bridge is recommended but be warn as you may experienced noise from the traffic above. The view will more than compensate for this.
