    I found it to be scary but really enjoyable. It did look inviting from the outside so I put my fears to one side and looked up to the sky (past the croissant shaped clouds) and found the courage to do so.

    Spent a week walking the wharfs in Sydney Harbor in February and it is an amazing adventure! So much to see and do, and so many food and beverage choices. If you are in Sydney walking the wharfs is a must do!

    On time, easy to navigate, multiple stops on comfortable ships. The maps provided give you all the information you need to plan your travel. Always felt safe, staff generous with information and waiting areas easy to find.

    You can actually take tours to walk up hundreds of feet above if your so inclined, otherwise very nice bridge to take photo ops of.

    This was one of my favourite Sydney experiences and it was free. Access is from right next to the CBD and Circular Quay/Opera House. You can spend as little or as long as you like wandering through the gardens.
    The absolute highlight was going to The Calyx and seeing the massive green wall and native and exotics (orchids/anthuriums) housed in a circular building. I almost ran in when I got there and did give a small donation.
    There were some glasshouses to see however they were tour only which is a shame.
    You can also find ibis and cockatoos roosting which is funny for us kiwis who only have little birds out in the city.
    Some of the exhibits change with the season and there was a Camelia garden and sculpture as well on display but we weren’t really into that.
    If you see a volunteer be ready for a long chat as they are very helpful and knowledgeable and will give you lots of suggestions and information.

    We have just had a week staying opposite the Manly beach.
    A great spot for water activities, always people swimming, surfing, playing beach volley ball on the courts set up on the beach.
    Plenty of toilet and shower facilities.
    It is a lovely spot for a walk anytime of the day but especially in the morning when it can be very busy.
    The beach is well maintained and always looks clean.
    Beautifull Norfolk Pines line the walkway between the beach and road.
    All in all a beautiful spot to spend time
