A kayak down the river to the Husky Pub is a must, and easy enough for those of limited kayaking experience. We had a great time. We’ll definitely be going back next time and recommending it to all our friends.”
4. Glamping Sydney Harbour

Guest review: “Definitely a must for anyone looking for a great tourist experience or just for animal lovers! Well worth the price tag and I’d really recommend it to anyone considering it – you won’t regret it. Make sure you get a good night’s sleep the night before though- the animal noises through the night may keep up light sleepers.”
