Although there are exclusive homes dotted around the water's edge, there are large tracts of parklands, reserves and gardens that balance the harbor environmentally. It is possible to walk around much of the harbor edge and picnic in many spots.
On a warm sunny day, the harbor is a vibrant blue and dotted with hundreds of sailing boats, cruise boats and ferries.
The best way of seeing the harbour is to be on it and that's easy to do. Sydney Ferries, which are also government run, provide an inexpensive way of seeing the most beautiful harbour in the world.
The hub of Sydney Harbour is Circular Quay, a ferry terminus situated at the bottom end of the central business district. Government ferries depart from here for most parts of the harbour. From here its an easy walk or short ferry ride to The Rocks, the Taronga Zoo, Darling Harbour and Bondi Beach.
