Circular Quay is an absolutely buzzing place. From cafes, restaurants and little shops, to street performers dazzling the onlookers and tourists rushing for harbour cruises, it's quite the place to be.
Circular Quay serves as the main ferry terminal of the city and due to that is the place from where all the harbour cruises embark. Since harbour cruises are a very popular things to do among locals and tourists, Circular Quay is always crowded and the atmosphere, electric. Harbour cruises are a brilliant way to tour the ocean around the city and look at the city in an entirely new light, from an entirely new angle. The Sydney Opera House especially, looks quite stunning as you cross it. Places like the Taronga Zoo are also reached via ferry, and all in all, Circular Quay is a must visit on your Sydney itinerary.
