Neutral Bay Ferry Ride

Rating: 3/5
by Carolyn Hopping
New South Wales (366)      Sydney (352)      Northern Beaches (117)      Circular Quay (6)      Sydney Harbour (5)      Daytime (292)      Budget (142)      Cruise (7)      Any month (4)      Any season (4)     

Compared to the large busy ferries that connect Manly with Circular Quay, the boat that services Neutral Bay, Kirrabilli and a few other small harbourside locales is tiny and quaint. Outside of rush-hour, it caters mainly to well-heeled locals and a ride on it is a leisurely affair, providing spectacular views over the Sydney skyline and glimpses into beautiful secluded bays.

If you find Sydney Harbour cruises a bit pricey, a return ride from Circular Quay is a great way to explore, at a fraction of the cost. Alternatively, it's also nice to stop off at the various jetties, and to take a walk through the pretty waterside parks or visit the cosy cafes that are located close by. Another great adventure is to visit Nutgrove, the Neutral Bay home and studio of May Gibbs who wrote and illustrated the children's classic, Snugglepot and Cuddlepie in the early 1900s.
