Exploring Sydney - Parramatta River

Although I have lived in Sydney for quite some years now, there is still a lot of this city & surrounds that I have not seen. So last weekend we took the rivercat from Parramatta to Circular Quay. The mangroves & the birds line the upper reaches, in between the industries at Rose Hill & Silverwater,

then give way to housing with million dollar views from Rhodes all the way down to the city & beyond.

The views of the city are vastly different looking from west to east, and at some point the name changes from Parramatta River to Sydney Harbour.

About an hour later the rivercat docked at Circular Quay, where with local ferries, train station, & overseas terminal we can go any where. But who would want to when the harbour looks like this?
