Sydney harbour is not a fun place to visit. The smell (bad water smell and diesel engines exhaust) makes it unbearable. Make water skiing available here.

The harbor is filth filled. There are private boats that throw trash onto the sea. This place not to be visited.

The Sydney Harbour with the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House is one of the world's most beautiful natural harbour. It is what is on all the postcards and what makes Sydney. It has Cockatoo Island a penal establishment 1839-1869 and a ship dockyard 1857-1991 and Pinchgut Island with Fort Denison that opened in 1857,also a penal site. I have not been to either of them but just to the harbour

No words describe Sydney Harbour it’s just stunning.... You can sit people watch - catch a ferry- walk the bridge spend a little or a long time hanging around.

We are dumbfounded that this place is even a tourist attraction. The daily number of boats, commercial boat, means that this place is a logistical hub, not a tourist spot.
