Solstice Sunset Dinner

This is the perfect start to an evening or stunning end to an amazing day in the greatest city in the world. Fire, light and food are the magical ingredients to take us through the longest nights of the year. Departing Darling Harbour at 5.00pm experience the full canvas of a vibrant Sydney Harbour sunset while enjoying a superb 3-course dinner. Disembark at 7.00pm and take the 10 minute stoll along the foreshore to Cockle Bay to experience an explosion of light with the Solstice fireworks spectacular `LuminoSydney'  at 7.30pm.  

Fireworks Fri-Sun | 11-20 Jun 2021 only | 7.30pm at Cockle Bay

Our harbour is a living artwork, from the sea birds that skip off the water to the endless silhouette shapes on the horizon. As we start our cruise at 5pm, the colours and magic of Sydney’s iconic landscape change by the minute. The early evening departure of our Sunset Dinner Cruise also means an early finish, making this waterfront restaurant experience the perfect option for pre-theatre dining, family groups and those wanting to wind down after a big day of exploring the city. After your à la carte meal with both seafood, steak and vegetarian options, be sure to spend some time on the outer deck and watch the sunset as a warm Sydney breeze carries you into the evening. Disembark our Sunset Dinner Cruise and meander along the harbour foreshore or enjoy a nightcap at one of the many nightclubs and bars in the city.
