Sydney Boating Destinations
There is such a diversity of Sydney boating destinations within the iconic body of water.

You could even wet a line and catch dinner while you're at it! A quick word of warning, be mindful of the Manly ferry which as right of way.
2) Watson's Bay

The fishing club was established in 1952 and is steeped in history. Doyle's on the Beach is an iconic eatery located at Watson's bay. Spoil the family with lunch.

Athol Bay is located in front of Taronga Zoo and faces the Sydney harbour bridge. This bay may well be the most popular anchorage within the harbour. It is well protected with a scattering of public moorings and plenty of spots to anchor.
