Writer's Walk: Follow the round plaques set into the path at regular intervals along the Quay. This is the Writers' Walk which celebrates famous Australian writers and offers snippets of their impressions of Australia. On your way to the Opera House, the walk is certainly worth a read.

Monorail Loop: A monorail loop connects the Sydney CBD with the western side of Darling Harbour and the Entertainment Centre at Chinatown at five-minute intervals (generally from 7am). This a really quick and affordable way to make your way around the central district.

Bike Hire: Looking for a different way to explore Sydney? Bike hire companies around the city offer an affordable and flexible way to get to know this sprawling city. Be prepared for a bit of a workout if you end up in some of the hilly suburbs but enjoy the opportunity to access some of Sydney's hidden gems - off the tourist trail. A great day out may also take you on a ferry across to Manly where you can hire a bike for a few hours to explore the beachside suburb.
