Sydney Harbour Port Jackson

Port Jackson, comprising the waters of Sydney Harbour

Port Jackson, consisting of the waters of Sydney Harbour, Middle 

Harbour, North Harbour and the Lane Cove and Parramatta 

Rivers, is the ria or natural harbour of Sydney, New South Wales

Australia. The harbour is an inlet of the Tasman Sea (part of the 

South Pacific Ocean). It is the location of the Sydney Opera House 

and Sydney Harbour Bridge. The location of the first European 

settlement in Australia, Port Jackson has continued to play a key 

role in the history and development of Sydney.

Many recreational events are based on or around the harbour 

itself particularly the Sydney New Year's Eve celebrations and the 

starting point of the Sydney to Hobart yacht race.

bushwalking tracks and picnic areas
