When you think of Sydney, the Opera House, Bondi Beach, Manly and the Harbour Bridge immediately spring to mind. Now, it’s never been easier to see these iconic attractions.
Not since 1932, when the Bridge bought the city together, has seeing the sites been so easy. Two of Sydney’s biggest tourist operators The Manly Flyer and the City Sightseeing Sydney to Bondi ‘Hop-On Hop-Off’ bus have joined forces to offer out-of-towners and Sydney-siders alike a fun and economical day out for all the family.
With Sydney officially the premier holiday city in Australia1 welcoming 1.8 million2 domestic visitors and more than 17 million3 international visitors during the first quarter of 2010, both operators have teamed up to ensure future holidaymakers enjoy all Sydney has to offer.
Hop on the luxury Manly Flyer catamaran and cruise iconic Sydney Harbour then take in the sites as you travel around Sydney or from Sydney to Bondi on the ‘Hop-On Hop-Off’ double-decker bus for a fun filled day where you are in complete control. Does someone feel like fish and chips on the beach at Manly? Or would you rather see the Opera House up close, it’s as simple as alighting at any of the Manly Flyer’s or the double-decker’s stops to explore on foot or simply sit pretty and take in all Sydney has to offer.
