Sightseeing on-board the Sydney ferry, from Circular Quay to Manly Wharf, is one of the best ways to view the spectacular fusion of modern city coastlines and suburban greeneries of Sydney. Besides the skyscrapers that line the Sydney metropolis seen from afar, one can see the vibrant colours of numerous yachts as well as the bow and stern of speedboats sailing the famed harbour.
Islets such as the Fort Denison, known as the Heart of the Harbour, Clark Island and Shark Island are excellently seen aboard the ferry. Other superb structures one get to have a good look are the Eastern Channel Pile Light, massive ships docked along Woolloomooloo Bay and other passenger ferries plying the harbour. One can also encounter sea planes traversing the clear skyline like seagulls happily flying the cold sea breeze.
The most spectacular view of the iconic Sydney Opera House can also be viewed on the deck of the ferry. Not to mention, the sight of the colossal Sydney Harbour Bridge from across the waters of the harbour. These two world-renowned Australian landmarks which are equally stunning from the dock of the Circular Quay are amusingly better when on-board a Sydney ferry. One can get a splendid view of their glorious structural grandeur which is picture-perfect for photographers. Thus, one should not be contented to view these prominent Sydney wonders from the dock; but get into one of the ferries and be amazed by the exquisite tourist attractions of Sydney along the waters of the harbour.
