    The quay is the bustling and hustling transport hub for trains,ferries and buses. It has always been busy only visits. It's quite easy to board ferries - the gates are well posted and the ferries are constantly coming and going. Between the ferries and people watching, it's never boring! It's a bit crazier than usual because of construction in the area.

    Great place easy to get to by train, ferry, car or on foot. Loads to see and do , easy walk out to The Opera House, around to the Rocks area and the International cruise area. Loaded with cafes and eateries for cheap eats or, restaurants and bars. Lots of buskers and street entertainment. Very lively place.

    The quay is the transport hub for ferries and buses. Its always busy. The ferries are well signposted and run frequently. Must have a ticket before you board though. At present some building going on outside and its a bit confusing for tourists but will be good when its finished. Just made looking for buses a bit tricky! Lots to see and do and to people watch.

    Great place to soak up Sydney atmosphere!!! It's busy and vibrant. Sit in one of the many coffee shops on on the grass and watch the ferries come and go. Try not to feed the gulls and enjoy the sun as the world goes busily by in this busy harbour!!!

    This is the place to be in Sydney; everything you need in one place: stores, restaurants, harbor cruises, ferries and Sydney Opera House.

    Great shops, cafes and restuarants, ferry terminals. Just a buzz and so much to see and do. It comes to life so beautifully in the evenings and the views are amazing.

    too much shops, too much commercial people trying to sell whatever they sell, too much hazzle. It is really not wirth anymore to go there, except when you want to take a ferry of course...:)

    Tickets for attractions, ferries, cruises and sightseeing tours. Information kiosks for what's going on in Sydney. Cafes, shoppes, bars all surrounding the area of the quay. Center for activity for anything going on in city. One of the major quay's in the area. Worth a visit to sightsee and get your bearings for visiting the city. Hop on / off stop close but also for buying tickets. Close to many major attractions on the water.

    Circular Quay is another lovely spot as so many buskers, families walking, children riding bikes, spot to sit and appreciate the views. There was a big boat in port so got to see that leave which was a bonus. Circular Quay is so close to the main shopping area of Sydney.

    Very busy but nice to walk around. Was especially impressed of the view of the quay from the Opera House by night and day. Plenty of places to eat or grab a coffee or ice cream.

    Train is quick and clean. If you have a long layover at the airport, catch a quick train into Circular Quay (I think it's only like 4 stops or something). The sites and sounds around the harbor are incredible. The multicultural crowd, the opera house steps, the quick walk along the bridge - spectacular!

    One of the best place to visit not only in Australia but i think in the world .Sometimes you find festivals like light festival which takes place from June to may .You can find also the Opra house the most iconic structure .In fact once you go to circular quay you fell in love .

    Great place - and the main drag - to catch your ferry going .. almost anywhere! It's the central hub for all ferries in Sydney Harbor. There is also a small garden / park where people like to sit outside and watch the ships.

    On a sunny winter's day the walk from the Bot. Gardens, past the opera house, through the quay to the bridge, is quite simply one of the world's best city CBD walks. Just gorgeous!

    Recommend taking a boat/ferry out just so you can see the other side of Sydney Opera House and go under Harbour Bridge. Worth a look if you are in the area or near. I took a train here from Sydney CBD (2 stops), then caught the Shopper Hopper to Birkenhead Point Outlet Shopping Centre. It was a nice day out (though shopping centre wasn't amazing). Quite a few nice places to eat with nice views too. Can be quite busy.
