Decided to ferry all the way from Circular Quay, up the harbour, up the Parramatta River and it finishes as a creek. Spent the day walking around the parks and a very good Westfield shopping centre which is located adjacent the railway station. Fast train took us back to the city for a little wander before heading home to Kirrawee.

Parramatta
Hi Phil, Leon & I did this ferry trip in 2012 while on a 5 day holiday to Sydney. We got off at Parramatta and got a shuttle to the Caravan and Camping Show at Rosehill Racecourse. I had no idea the ferry ended in such a narrow mangrove lined creek! It was a tranquil trip and we were fortunate to have a stunning autumn day of sunshine & blue skies. Glad you enjoyed it also. Hope you are both well. Regards, Regina
