Circular Quay is situated around Sydney Cove, once a shipping region, but now a transport, leisure and recreational centre. It is made up of walkways, parks and restaurants and hosts a number of ferry quays and a train station.
There are a couple of art galleries on Circular Quay, The Museum of Contemporary Art in an art deco building, and the grand looking Customs House. Circular Quay is also home to one of Australia’s most famous icons the Sydney Opera House.
On the east side of Circular Quay are its many restaurants and stylish boutiques, along with the large Dendy Cinema. On the western side of Circular Quay is the famous Rocks area with a number of quaint shopping arcades and pretty restaurants.
