AusDay Sky 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 Sky Deck on January 26.

Service: The lunchtime Australia Day cruise on the Sydney 2000 was a fantastic day. The table service was excellent and so was the food. We booked on the sky deck and we were not disappointed.
Product: Great value for the price

The day is great but queuing and boarding is very messy and people push to get on. No need to push if you have tickets. Once on board the mood is great but towards the front of the boat the a/c is poor and with people going in and out the doors the temperatures rise and it becomes uncomfortable. Pity as the cruise and meals are fine
