We were in Sydney for a week and bought a two day pass with transport. We definitely got our money's worth! The transport made it very easy to board, trains, buses. The first day we toured the Opera House on the Essential Free Tour, bought the $35 picture package which was well worth the money paid for it. We took the bus to the Sydney Museum-Free and learned about the beginnings of the city, strolled through the Royal Botanical Gardens, stopped by the Government House, visited the Art Gallery NSW and that was free but paid extra for admission to see the 2,000 year old Chinese Terra Cotta soldiers on display. That was incredible! From there we walked to Hyde Park and saw the fountain, took a break for a while, then walked over to the Tower and got in free to view the city, took the OZTrek, that was cool, just like being on Soaring Over California at Disney California. Then after taking in the view and figuring out where our hotel was in relation to the tower, we went to the food court at the tower and had pizza at one of the restaurants. Then took the train back to our hotel.
Day 2- Took the bus to Town Hall, toured that free, walked over through Hyde Park, viewed the Anzac War Memorial, which was temporarily closed, to the Hyde Park Barracks and toured that free. The barracks provided an excellent synopsis of how the country got started. Then we walked back over to the Queen Victoria Building, took the 11:30am tour of the building. This is a great tour with excellent history included! They give you a gift bag with lots of postcards to send to friends/family abroad. Did much more free!
Fantastic!!! Card was extremely easy to use. We did the opera house tour, sydney tower, jet cruise, wildlife park and aquarium and chinese gardens all in one day and all for 75! Only down side was that the jet boating and the jet cruise were run by the same company so we couldn't do jet boating on the same day. I have recommended this card to all my friends. Thanks heaps.
We bought the 7 day Sydney card with transportation for myself, my husband and our 22 month child. We recommend doing it as it is a great way to get your moneys worth! Here is what we did in 7 days: Day 1) Picked up card in Darling Harbour, walked around there and went to the Wildlife World, then took the afternoon bus tour and rode the ferry back from Manly beach. We also went up in the tower. Day 2) Opera House Tour in Circular Quay, Jet Boat tour only one of us since one had to stay with the child, and Sydney Museum. We also walked around the Rocks Day 3) Zoo, and the Jet Boat tour Day 4), Blue Mountains, Explorer Bus and Scenic World, then when we got back we did the Aquarium. Day 5) Paddy's Markets, Powerhouse Museum, Hyde Barracks Museum and National Maritime Museum as well as the Queen Victoria Building Day 6) Susannah Place Museum, Harbor Bridge Pylon Lookout Day 7) Royal Gardens Park, New South Wales Art Gallery. It was a busy time and we were still able to meet friends for lunch and dinner and hang out in the parks and enjoy.
You truly have not experienced Sydney unless you have gone on a cycling tour (7 hours worth in fact). Our guide was fantastic. His knowledge of the past, present and future of Sydney gets a gold star in my book. Areas covered included Manly Beach, North Head, The Rocks, Observatory Hill, Cockle Bay, Piers, Harbour Bridge, Hyde Park, Financial District, Botanical Gardens, you name it we saw it. The views throughout the entire tour were amazing! Bicycles and helmets were in great shape. The Manly Beach Wharf restaurant was chic and trendy, a nice place for a champagne and lunch. We even got souvenir hats at the end of the trip. We definitely would not have gotten the lay of the land if we hadn't booked this tour.

Very beautiful and a great picnic spot for the family. Bring your own lunch as there was only one cafe and fairly expensive.
