Inner Harbour ferry services connect suburbs on the foreshore of the inner Sydney Harbour with Circular Quay by commuter ferry. The services are provided by Sydney Ferries, an agency of the Government of New South Wales. These routes are coloured various shades of green on the current Sydney Ferries network map. Vessels in the First Fleet and Emerald class generally service these routes.
The current Sydney Ferries timetable divides Inner Harbour ferry services into two sections, both operating independently.
- Neutral Bay F5 services - Circular Quay, Kirribilli, North Sydney, Neutral Bay and Kurraba Point
- Mosman F6 services - Circular Quay, Cremorne Point, South Mosman, Old Cremorne and Mosman Bay
- Darling Harbour services - Circular Quay, Milsons Point, McMahon Point, Balmain East, Barangaroo and Pyrmont Bay
In October 2017 this was reorganised to become the Cross Harbour ferry services which are no longer considered part of the Inner Harbour services.

- Circular Quay is a major Sydney transport hub, with a large ferry, rail and bus interchange. The Cahill Expressway is a prominent feature of the quay, running from the east, over the elevated railway station to join the Sydney Harbour Bridge in the west. Sydney Cove was the site of the initial landing of the First Fleet in Port Jackson. Circular Quay was originally mainly used for shipping and slowly developed into a transport, leisure and recreational centre. Sydney Ferries services use wharves 2, 3, 4 and 5 at Circular Quay. Each wharf has ticket vending machines and ticket barriers, and is wheelchair-accessible.
