A Sydney Harbour Circuit
Your 2-hour dinner cruise makes a circuit around Sydney Harbour so you will get to see all the sites while you also enjoy each other’s company. Cruising at a gentle 4 knots, pass the historic Rocks and Sydney Park Hyatt and under Sydney Harbour Bridge toward the sunset (don’t forget to look up!); spot Goat Island ahead.
Observe Millers Point and the finger wharves at Walsh Bay. Witness patrons enjoying a sunset drink before a performance at the Bangarra Dance Theatre. As the ship turns into Darling Harbour, spot people walking, jogging or cycling along Wulugul Walk that connects Barangaroo reserve to 11 km (6.8 mi) along the Sydney Harbour foreshore. Watch the sunset glitter in the windows of the luxury 75-storey Crown Hotel Sydney.
As you return into Sydney Harbour, Sydney Opera house is in full view on the right, her shiny sails glittering in the glow of final sunlight. Watch for people on the balcony under the main sail as you cruise by this World heritage-listed artistic monument of outstanding architecture and universal value, breathtaking at every turn.
Cruise alongside the foreshore of the Royal Botanic Garden and pass the iconic lookout at Mrs Macquarie’s Chair. In the middle of the Harbour you’ll pass the historic island fort and penal site, Fort Denison and cruise between Clark Island and pretty McKell Park.
The vessel begins to turn at Point Piper, home to a past prime minister and the secluded Lady Martin Beach. With Rose Bay in view, watch for Shark Island and on land Milk Beach and Neilson Park on the point, both accessible on the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Heritage Walk.
As the journey turns, the north shore is in view, where green parklands sit above the cliffs of Bradley’s Head with the lighthouse on the point. Here is the home to Taronga Zoo Sydney, accessible from the harbour, boasting its magnificent views toward the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Pass by the pretty Cremorne Point and cruise toward Kirribilli Point, where the historic Admiralty House can be seen from the water. The Sydney home of the Governor General of Australia adjoins the Sydney home of the Prime Minister of Australia - Kirribilli House. You get to see all these points of interest as well as the yachts and ferries that give life to the harbour waterways.
