the harbour. The public ferries and high-speed JetCats departing
from circular Quay are easy to get around. JetCats travels
also to Parramatta, Manly and Taronga Zoo.

to enjoy the city attractions. A city Monorail links the

attractions around the city, the red Explorer stops at the
inner-city area and the blue Explorer travels around the
eastern harbourside bays and coastal beaches.
