Australia: Between Sydney and Manly

4 of 35

Within 30 minutes, the ferry breezes past Sydney’s
blockbuster sights—the Sydney Opera House, Harbour “Coathanger” Bridge, and
downtown skyscrapers—and greener ones. You’ll see botanical gardens, tiny
islands with Victorian homes and cottages, innumerable coves, little bays,
hidden beaches, and imposing brown sandstone cliffs topped with native gum
trees. With a little luck, a bottlenose dolphin or southern right whale might
pop up nearby.
