Harbour Bridge and Circular Quay in Sydney, Australia

Click on title to view photo in large format. Circular Quay in Sydney, Australia, sits at the heart of the city. At the head of the Quay is the main ferry terminus, while the famous Harbour Bay Bridge lies at its foot. The location is more than practical; it was on this precise spot that the settlement of Australia was founded. Thus it seems appropriate that today a multitude of ferries depart every few minutes, transporting locals to and from work and tourists to Manly, Watsons Bay, Mosman, and Taronga Zoo. Behind the ferry terminus lies the central business district of Sydney, as well as bus and rail hubs. With so many people flooding into Circular Quay in Sydney each day, dozens of open-air restaurants have sprung up, making it a popular weekend destination for rest and relaxation.
