Sydney Ferries

To other destinations, only the traditional ferry services operate, but these are still very fun. They provide some beautiful views and they are also quite a quick way to travel from point to point. The city ferry terminal is at Circular Quay and easily reached by train.

The conventional ferry services can be used with all Sydney travel passes. Conventional ferries to Manly can be used with other passes at any time, but the Jetcats are available only after 7pm. Ticket offices are located at the entrance to each wharf at Circular Quay.

Harbour cruises are also operated by the ferry companies. Morning cruises last one hour and afternoon cruises last for two and a half hours. Evening cruises last for one and a half hours. However, only with the afternoon cruise will you reach places which you cannot reach on an ordinary ferry.

The Ferry Information Centre can be found opposite Wharf 4 at Circular Quay.
