Across the water, world famous icons of the city, the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, invite guests of the North Sydney Harbourview Hotel to venture a little closer to explore the area vibrant with culture, history and attractions for amusement. The Circular Quay, the original point of landing for Australia's first settlers, still serves as the stepping off point for ferries, buses and trains reaching all neighborhoods easily and outlying features such as Bondi Beach toward the sea and inland to the edge of the Bush. Ships of all sizes at port complement the Aquarium and other exhibits high-lighting Sydney's inescapable connection to the sea that was suited to be a homeland to convicts two centuries ago.
The historic Rocks Point District is the site of the original settlers of Sydney, an area of cobbled streets and narrow alleyways, a story around every corner and a trip back in time but with the warehouses converted into boutique shops, distinguished and eclectic restaurants and art galleries modern and traditional, all creating new tales for the modern day during a long evening's stroll. The interactive Discovery Museum delights children and adults alike. The open air market on the weekends is full of arts and crafts, live music and a magical atmosphere reminiscent of the centuries of its history.
250 meters overhead, the Skywalk atop the Sydney Tower offers breath-taking vistas between feet firmly planted on a glass floor, looking down at the shopping centre far below, a dizzying complex of stores and restaurants, cinemas, laser and bowling amusements. Luna park offers rides on the ground to take the most hardy upside down and backwards just as high and nearby a flight-simulator convinces seasoned travelers to remain in their seats. The Taronga Zoo first opened in 1816 on what was known as Billy Goat Swamp. The Royal Botanical Gardens presents exotic plants and vegetation. The variety of an entire city, in short, lies immediately accessible to patrons of the North Sydney Harbourview Hotel, not a bridge too far.
