Undoubtedly, Australia Day lunch cruises are the best available options to enjoy not only the Ferrython but all major Australian Day events.
Ferrython will be followed by a 21-gun military salute by the armed forces at Bradfield Park and HMAS Choules positioned between the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. Gaze up to the sky from the decks of a premium glass boat as the RAAF jets, navy helicopters and Qantas aircraft showcase their piloting skills. The Tug and Yacht ballet is a waltz to watch from the 360° glass-paned dining saloon.
