Sydney is the most-visited harbour city and there is no other place to rival its beauty and vibrancy. Explore top Sydney Harbour attractions on a splendid lunch cruise combining million-dollar harbour views with spectacular dining. Choose from range of buffet and a la carte dining options, group special events or rewarding sightseeing cruises.
The Primary City Of Australia
What better way to experience Sydney other than sipping on a cool refreshing drink and indulging in a sumptuous buffet lunch on luxury Sydney cruise, whilst taking in roving sights of one of the most beautiful harbours in the world. This first-born Australian city is spread around numerous bays and inlets of world’s largest natural harbour, “The Port Jackson”.
The ultimate way to absorb the actual essence of this harbour city is from the platform of its bustling water. Watch the botanic gardens and extensive green parklands that line up the harbour and don’t miss out on the elegant sandstone buildings studded in the oldest part of Sydney, “The Rocks”.
See the World Heritage Listed Opera House as the vessel cruises past Bennelong Point. Let the magnificence of its sails tell you the tale of why it took 14 years to be planned and constructed.
The lunch cruise takes its pedal off as it sails past the Garden Island, where the Royal Australian Navy Heritage Centre Museum and an outdoor heritage precinct is located.
The expansive outer decks would be perfect to explore the former penal site and the defensive facilities of Fort Denison. The visual impact of the fort is a combination of the strong vertical mass of the Martello Tower and the equally-strong horizontal lines of the low barrack and battery buildings.
At a distance, you can also spot the lovely Clark Island located off the tip of the prestigious Darling Point near Double Bay in Sydney’s Eastern suburbs.
As the cruise reaches Shark Island, it takes a U-turn along the picturesque precincts of the shark-shaped island to showcase the remaining Sydney Harbour attractions.
Nibble on delicious lunch as you watch the outdoor amphitheatre, Head Mast and lighthouse of the famous Bradley’s Head. The place bristles with military history and you can see the original timber gun carriage and slide from this period - alongside the remnants of the earlier fortifications - on Bradley’s Head walking tracks.
Cruise past the Taronga Zoo, lodging more than 4000 animals that range over 350 species, many of which are endangered.
The vessel then cruises past the Neutral Bay towards the iconic Kirribilli House, which is the secondary official residence of the Prime Minister.
Sydney Harbour Bridge
Don’t miss out on splendid opportunities to click amazing group photos and selfies with Sydney Harbour Bridge as the backdrop. The magnitude of the Harbour Bridge is beautifully portrayed as the vessel cruises beneath the bridge and past Luna Park to reach Darling Harbour, the spot where the journey began.
This lunch cruise is the perfect one to opt for as it bestows you with roving views of all sightseeing attractions topped by a freshly-prepared lunch menu.
