Ferries Between Circular Quay and Manly Have Been Cancelled Because of Huge Swell

If your daily commute involves ferrying across Sydney Harbour, you may need to find an alternative way home tonight. Large swell has led to the cancellation of all ferries between Manly and Circular Quay.

While there's no word yet on when the swell will subside — and when the ferries will start up again — replacement buses have been organised and will continue to run for the foreseeable future. Transport for NSW is telling commuters who plan on catching one of the replacement buses to allow for extra travel time and to listen to announcements.

This is what conditions on the ferry were like before they were cancelled today:

If your commute involves a ferry down Parramatta River, or across to Mosman, Double or Neutral Bay, you'll be happy to know those ferries are currently running on time. But we recommend keeping an eye on the Transport for NSW website just in case that changes.

The large swell is just the latest crazy weather to hit Sydney today, with the Bureau of Meteorology releasing a severe weather warning for damaging, locally destructive winds and damaging surf along a large portion of the NSW coast and a road weather alert for Sydney's eastern suburbs.

Overnight, the Blue Mountains copped a heap of snow and Katoomba train station was transformed into a veritable winter wonderland. Although it looked pretty, the snow caused a heap of delays and incidents along the Great Western Highway between Sydney and Katoomba.

❄️ Snow coming in hot (cold) at Katoomba! ❄️There is some pretty nasty weather incoming today, so please take care out...

The wild weather is expected to continue tomorrow with a 90-percent-chance of rain and powerful surf conditions forecast in Sydney. But, the long weekend is expected to clear up with a partly cloudy 21 degrees predicted for all three days.

For the latest updates on traffic and public transport delays, head to Live Traffic NSW and Transport for NSW's official Ferries Twitter account.
