When I first got into Sydney, I went to the visitors office to check out what’s available around the area. The lady told me if you do one thing in Sydney, you should take a cruise on the bay. I totally agree with her that it was the best way to learn about the whole area and take in the big picture of Sydney. The guide did a great job pointing out different building and neighborhoods and the view was incredible. I would highly recommend it. It was just icing on the cake that it had stops on the Taronga Zoo, and Watson’s Bay.
