The heart of Sydney seems to beat loudest at Circular Quay and near the bridge. It is here that most of the boats, ferries and water taxis arrive at some point during their journeys on Sydney Harbour.
On our recent holiday in Sydney we passed this point on a number of occasions. We used the wonderful ferry services a number of times. The trains emerge from the subway at this point too.
From this point we were able to walk in various directions. On one occasion we explored The Rocks area. On another occasion we walked to the Susannah Place Museum. Several times we walked into the city for shopping, though in some cases it is quicker catching a train. On another occasion we went to the New South Wales Art Gallery. On a previous visit we walked from this point to the Royal Botanic Gardens.
Sydney is an excellent city to explore via walking or on a ferry.
