The cruise ships dock right downtown within walking distance of the world famous Opera House. Know for its expressionist modern design, the Opera House is made up of a series of pre-cast large concrete shells and covered by over one million Swedish-made self-cleaning tiles.
Typically cruise ships will arrive very early in the morning. If you are on one, be sure to wake up and enjoy the arrival. Of special interest is the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge, locally nicknamed The Coathanger. It is the world's widest long-span bridge, and its tallest steel arch bridge.
