Sydney - Around the Harbour (PDF Chapter)
This is the Around the Harbour chapter from Lonely Planet’s Sydney guide-book.
Sure, it’s a stretch to call this large, disparate area a ‘neighbourhood’, but the harbour is such an integral part of the Sydney experience that we felt it was worth highlighting in this way.
- catch a ferry to Watsons Bay and spend an afternoon exploring South Head and lying around Camp Cove before claiming a spot at the pub as the sun sinks over the city
- paddle around secluded corners of the harbourside national park on a tour with Sydney Harbour Kayaks
- sneak down to the secluded Shark Beach and Nielsen Park, for a picnic and a swim
- restaurants & bars
Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping, Sports & Activities.
