Circular Quay at Sydney Cove is the modern-day hub of Sydney Harbour.
This bustling and vibrant place is at the heart of much of what Sydney has become famous for, from its culture and class to its architecture, dining and leisure.
Circular Quay is the stepping-off point for most attractions based around the harbour, and home to the popular ferry service leaving every few minutes to different parts of Sydney Harbour such as Manly, Watsons Bay, Mosman and Taronga Park Zoo.
“There are endless choices of what to do and see including visiting the Museum of Contemporary Art”
The iconic Sydney Opera House and Royal Botanical Gardens are just a few minutes’ walk to the south, while lovely landscaped walkways to the north lead to the Sydney Harbour Bridge and The Rocks historical precinct.
There are endless choices of what to do and see, including visiting the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Heritage-listed Customs House, watching street entertainers or perhaps taking a Sydney Harbour cruise from the wharf complex.
Circular Quay is also a gathering place for community celebrations and a congregation point for special occasions such as New Year's Eve and Australia Day, which end with a bang thanks to fireworks lighting up the harbour from the sky above.
Being situated at the northern edge of the Central Business District between Bennelong Point and The Rocks means the area is easily accessible by public transport, as is accommodation near Circular Quay.
