Only had one and a half days in Sydney due to flight problems in the US. Still was able to visit the Sydney WildLife Zoo to see all the unusual animals and wildlife of Australia. Although it is small, a visit to the Zoo was very enjoyable. We also were able to eat a wonderful dinner on the harbor at Aria and then attend the Handa Opera performance of West Side Story musical. Recommend taking the water taxi to/from the show. Tremendous production! Finally walked the Botanical Gardens prior to boarding the ship. Read Less

My home town! Self guided tour, ferry from Circular Quay around to Darling Harbour then got a light rail (tram) to Sydney Fish markets, had a lovely lunch & glass of wine then hopped on another tram to Central station. Went on the City Curcle via Museum station & got off at Wynyard as wanted to see the sculpture of the old wooden escalators suspended at the base of the new ones. Walked back down to the ship via places we visited in our past lives! Read Less

Disembarked our cruise and stayed 3 nights in Sydney at the MERCURE Sydney which is a very central hotel with excellent breakfast and great staff, if you’re staying in Sydney get an Opal card for public transport, the card is free to get but must load on $10 min for travel around Sydney, the fare is capped at $15.00 on Saturday and $2.75 on Sunday, excellent value, if you need more information on travel around Sydney go and see Mark or Jude in the information centre in the Central train station lots of good advice and very knowledgeable about Sydney.

We live in Sydney, and are only a 15 min taxi ride from home to the cruise terminal. Sydney is the best city in the world and our home so 5 stars of course!

Sydney is a beautiful city. We spent a week there prior to the cruise. Stayed at an Air BNB in Potts Point which was perfect. Circular Quay, where the boat is docked, is a great location with a lot of things to see within a very short walk: the botanical gardens, the opera house and the bridge are all right there. Read Less

loved being in Sydney again. Great! We were tendered in from where the ship moored, but the return trip was a high speed cat - great trip back to the ship. Went to the Sydney Fish Markets for lunch, wine, seafood - awesome!

Audible system was garbled so the information was hard to understand; views from the water were impressive; traveled all the way up to the entry of the harbor

Lots to see and do in Sydney. We visited a national park, walked across the harbor bridge (locals call it the coathanger bridge, visited the famous opera hall and the adjacent park area. To get out of the harbor area, take the ferries and use the light rail system. The light rail transit system is clean, easy to use, and seems to go everywhere. Read Less

Took shuttle into Sydney. We did a hop on/off bus tour which was great. A visit to the Opera house, botanical gardens and Bondi beach. Traffic awful later in the day.
