Ferry hopping Cremorne Point - Circular Quay - Cockatoo Island

Sunday is a good day to explore Sydney thanks to the family pass. It allows unlimited rides on all kinds of public transport for only $2.50 per adult. To use this pass, you need to travel with at least one child. Don't have kids? Bring along a niece, nephew or if desperate somebody else kid. :P

The best way to maximise this pass is to take the ferry. Ferry is the most expensive transportation in Sydney with one single ride cost at least $6. Our first ride was from Cremorne Point to Circular Quay. As a bonus, we also get to enjoy the panoramic view of Sydney.

Here comes the ferry

Sydney has beautiful coastal lines which is best explored by water transportation. Everywhere we set sights, we saw big houses facing the sea and many harboring yachts. My favourite part is when the ferry passed under the Harbour Bridge and we caught the first glimpse of the Sydney Opera House. It is still mesmerizing despite seeing them many times in the past. I lived in Sydney before when I was an undergraduate student. So glad to be back. :)

From Circular Quay we took another ferry out to Cockatoo Island. There wasn't much to see at Cockatoo Island so we only stayed here for about half an hour before taking our last ferry to Darling Harbour. Our trip was cut short because the kid went hungry. Well, we'll come back again to do other ferry routes.

The birds will not have peace when she's around. :D
