Circular Quay is one of the most new and exciting places to be. For many years this was the shipping centre of Sydney, but it’s now both a commuting hub and a recreational space, combining ferry quays, a railway station and the Overseas Passenger Terminal with harbour walkways, restaurants, buskers, parks, the Museum of Contemporary Art and, of course, the Sydney Opera House.
