Sydney Harbour, what a backdrop
A globally aspirational destination, Sydney Harbour turns on the charm every single day and adds glamour to the night, making it an unrivalled backdrop for events. The city knows it, with its calendar of spectacular annual events like summer’s New Year’s Eve and winter’s colourful three-week Vivid.
The beauty of this natural harbour is a sight to behold. If you have never celebrated on Sydney Harbour, now is the time to start planning. As you enjoy the ambience and attentive service onboard, outside on the boat is where the most spectacular show is.
You will cruise past the mesmerising Sydney Opera House, where inside the stage of the concert hall and outside, the unique architecture of its gleaming ‘sails’ are revered worldwide. Connecting the north and south side of the city, Sydney Harbour Bridge is an engineering wonder of its own accord, with its steel arch and granite-facing pylons. Ever watched the sun set behind the bridge? It’s a list-worthy thing.
Witness historic Kirribilli House and neighbouring Admiralty house, the Sydney residences of the Prime Minister and Governor General. Cruise past the greenery of the Royal Botanic Gardens home to Mrs Macquarie’s chair, see the European first settlement at The Rocks and watch the Ferris wheel spin behind the comical façade of Luna Park.
Watch for birdlife and little penguins, pretty coves and harbourside beaches, where the locals ease into the weekend after a week’s work.
It doesn’t matter where you are seated onboard; it all unfolds during your cruise.
