Starting off the New Year is one of numerous images of Sydney Harbour that were unused in my coffee table book ‘Cruising the World – From Gondolas to Megaships.’  

A photographic feast of cruising images, Sydney Harbour is always a bustling parade of ferries and sightseeing tour boats. An ocean cruise ship, like the Carnival Legend, can usually be seen in port docked at the Overseas Passenger Terminal at Circular Quay beside the historic Rocks area and within a short walk to Sydney’s city centre.

Additional cruise ships can normally be found in port at the White Bay Cruise Terminal on the other side of city centre, five minutes away by taxi.

All arriving and departing ocean cruise ships pass the iconic Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge and through the dramatic sandstone cliffs of The Heads at the entrance to the Pacific Ocean.
