Sydney Ferries: Practical Transportation in Australia or a Budget Harbour Cruise by Fiona Whiley
Nothing compares to the serenity of a beautiful bright sunny day on Sydney’s magnificent harbour. Sail boats can be seen bobbing happily across the waves, going nowhere in particular at a leisurely pace. Or waiting patiently at their moorings in sheltered bays and marinas, rehearsing a synchronized dance directed by the wind and the tides. Eye-catching groups of energetic “optimist” dinghies dart to and fro in formation, like a flock of birds wheeling and swooping in unison, as they navigate their course.
Cutting their way across the waves in a tireless circuit from wharf to wharf, amidst the frivolity of the sailing boats, weave the sober green and yellow workforce of the harbour – Sydney Ferries. Not only are the ferries an enjoyable and practical way to cross Sydney Harbour, but you can also board a ferry and enjoy the views of the harbour on a round-trip journey.
To travel on the ferries and all other public transport in Sydney you need an Opal Card, which allows you to travel around Sydney for $15.40 per day for an adult, $7.70 for a child and $2.50 for a pensioner Monday to Saturday. Sunday is a bonus, because the travel cap is $2.60 for the day for everyone.
