Sydney ferries are an iconic feature to the Sydney harbor, just about as famous as the Sydney Harbour Bridge they were the very first mode of public transport. The first ferry service was established in 1789, from farm cove to the farming settlement in Paramatta. Not surprisingly the first ferry was built by a convict, her official name was Rose Hill Packet (unofficially the locals called it ‘The Lump’). Each ferry can carry up to four hundred passengers, with now more than 14 million people per year crossing the Sydney Harbour by ferry. A total of twenty-eight ferries are part of the fleet (from the first fleet models and the stately old-schoolers to the sleek and fast catamaran fleet) connecting Sydneysiders with twenty nine wharves across thirty seven kilometers of harbour.
