Ferry tickets

To travel on Sydney Ferries routes F1-F7 you will need either an Opal card or a MyFerry1 or MyFerry2 ticket. Other valid tickets include MyMulti 2 and 3, and some day passes.

The Family fare deal applies to my MyFerry tickets.

MyFerry tickets cannot be used on Manly Fast Ferries, Sydney Fast Ferries, other private ferry services or on the Stockton ferry in Newcastle.

To travel on the Newcastle Stockton ferry you will need an Opal card, a single ticket, or a time-based ticket.

Types of MyFerry tickets

To work out which MyFerry ticket you need, first determine the distance you want to travel. MyFerry tickets are available in two distance-based fare bands:

  • MyFerry1 – under 9km
  • MyFerry2 – +9km

You can purchase MyFerry tickets as a single, return or Concession TravelTen in either of these distance bands. Concessions are available to children aged 4 to 15, students and pensioners and other concession cardholders. Children aged 3 and under travel free.

MyFerry single ticket

Your MyFerry1 or MyFerry2 single ticket is valid for a single trip. Tickets bought from ticket resellers (such as newsagents and convenience stores, usually located near ferry wharves) can be used on days other than the day of purchase.

MyFerry Concession TravelTen

MyFerry1 Concession TravelTen and MyFerry2 Concession TravelTen tickets are valid for 10 separate trips and offer a substantial saving on the cost of 10 single concession tickets.

Choosing the right fare

From Circular Quay:
  • a MyFerry1 ticket is required for the following wharves – Woolwich/Balmain, Darling Harbour, Mosman, Neutral Bay, Taronga Zoo, Watsons Bay and stops on the Parramatta River between Circular Quay and Cabarita wharf.
  • a MyFerry2 ticket is required for Manly and stops on the Parramatta River between Kissing Point and Parramatta.

If you travel on the F3 Parramatta River service, you can use the Parramatta River distance chart to determine the correct MyFerry fare type. Locate your departure wharf in the first column and then follow the row across to the column of your arrival wharf.

Weekly ferry commuters should consider the MyMulti 2 or 3 ticket, depending on their travel zone, or using an Opal card.
