As Australia's largest city, Sydney is a sprawling metropolis that still manages to maintain a semblance of order and has many areas that vary from charming, to impressive, to beautiful, and all degrees in between. The "city centre" (if there is one) is based around the area near Town Hall and Central stations, which both make for a great starting point from which to base your sightseeing expeditions. Sydney's public transport system is one of the best in Australia, with an array of buses, trains, ferries, and other options that can bring you to all the major landmarks and destinations fairly efficiently.
Slightly to the North of the CBD is Circular Quay, which is the starting point and transportation hub for witnessing the beauty of Sydney's world-famous Harbour and its unique architecture and sparkling water. Numerous ferries that follow multiple routes frequently depart from Circular Quay if you want to explore the water, while a walk around the Quay itself will being you to many of the most popular attractions, including the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge.
