AusDay Club Deck Lunch

Our national day on Sydney Harbour might be a little different this year with regular events like the Ferrython, flyover and tall ships race in hibernation. The 185th Australia Day Regatta, the oldest continuously conducted annual sailing regatta in the world, will take place from 1:00pm and we'll be there to cheer them on basking under blue skies and enjoying a 4-course premium lunch with drinks and live music on Club Deck on January 26.

Spending Australia Day aboard the Sydney 2000 was a fantastic way to spend the day. Captain Cook Cruises went above and beyond it make it a special day.
