Things to do

Sydney Harbor is one of the most scenic natural harbors in the world; There are many companies that offer excellent recreational boats that are completely safe for inexperienced beginners. If you’re here on Boxing Day, you can catch the world-famous start of the Sydney Hobart Yacht Race to Tasmania. You can even go back in time on a heritage cruise, sip a glass of champagne and eat caviar.

Sydney Harbor Bridge transit zone

The transit zone was created to create a safe passage through the busiest part of the port. Make sure you have a proper route plan as you can only go through the zone to get to the edge or nearby area. It is recommended that you travel with a tour group. Vessels are not permitted to anchor within the zone or exceed a speed of 15 knots, except in an emergency.
