Explore Sydney By Ferry

Sydney Ferries operates ferry services on Sydney Harbour along nine routes, all of which terminate at Circular Quay in the city. Ferries will take you to many parts of the harbour and Parramatta River. In addition to ferries, there are harbour cruises run by various operators, and water taxis.

To catch trains, buses, ferries and light rail in Sydney and surrounding areas you will need an Opal card or Opal single ticket. The Opal network covers all of Sydney, north to Newcastle, west to the Blue Mountains and south to Wollongong and the Southern Highlands. If you are taking more than one trip on public transport, using an Opal Card is the most convenient and affordable way to pay for your fares. Simply tap on and off as you go.

      • Our Travel Guides (below) provide information on each scheduled ferry service, including information about points of interest on the way, as well as detailed information on what to see and do, walks etc. at each stop. The Guides are designed for use with a phone or tablet. Much of the information supplied is hidden to avoid the user having to scroll through pages of text, but can be accessed quickly by simply tapping on a heading. Tapping a second time hides the information again.
