We like to think of our harbour as a sunset painting in progress where the magical colours of Sydney’s iconic landscape change by the minute. The aquamarine colours of Summer give way to the warm orange hues of Autumn before deepening to a magical Winter twilight blue. Year round, sun-up or sun-down, the colours of Sydney Harbour will welcome you onboard our Sunset Dinner Cruise.
Dine at sunset, twilight or under a summer glow
The colours of Sydney’s iconic landscape change by the minute
The early evening departure and finish, makes this 360° waterfront restaurant experience the perfect option for pre-theatre dining, family groups and those wanting to wind down after a big day working or exploring in the city. Be sure to spend some time on the outdoor star deck to let a warm Sydney breeze carry you into the evening. After your cruise, meander along the foreshore or enjoy a nightcap at one of the many nightclubs and bars at Circular Quay, Darling Harbour or Barangaroo.
