    Cruise Overview

    Home to the iconic sail like Opera House and the arcing steel Sydney Bridge the skyline of the city is easily recognisable both from the land and the sea. The Harbourside is home to a cacophony of boutiques, cafes and intimate dining venues. The esteemed Royal Botanical gardens and the Sydney Tower’s Skywalk with 360-degree city views are also a key attraction. Head out of the city to the nearby Blue Mountains region which showcases Australia’s biodiversity. The area is home to deep ravines overlooking forested valley’s and tumbling waterfalls. Board your cruise to glide up the Queensland coast calling in at quintessential seaside towns.


    Blue Mountains & Wildlife Tour

    Discover the Blue Mountains region, host to endless mountain views and showcases Australia's unique and beautiful flora and fauna. Get your photo taken with a Koala at the Featherdale Wildlife Park and don’t forget Scenic World where you can ride the steepest railway in the world!

    - Action-packed day full of nature, sights and exploration 
    - Admire the various landmarks and iconic places 
    - Get up close to Australia’s native animals in a fantastic wildlife park 

    Join us for this action-packed tour exploring the World-Heritage listed Blue Mountains and then a pleasant trip to the Featherdale Wildlife Park. Crisp, clean, fresh mountain top air with distant blue haze horizons overlooking deep ravines with rainforest carpeting the valley floor. Waterfalls, sleepy hamlets and the rich warm smell of the Australian bush make this a very special place for every visitor.

    Cross the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and enjoy the spectacular views. Climb into the mountains via the sleepy hamlets of Blaxland, Leura, Wentworth Falls and Lawson whilst feeling like a true adventurer and embracing the natural world around you. See the iconic Katoomba, the regional capital of the Blue Mountains and enjoy breathtaking scenery and sights over the Jamison Valley. Discover the quaint mountain village of Leura where you’ll have plenty of free time to wander the streets.

    Next we’ll visit Scenic World where you will have the opportunity ride all the unique attractions (not included.) You can ride the steepest incline Railway in the world down to a lush and hidden valley below. Or gently ascend on the Cableway, exposing you to panoramic views and ride on the Skyway which glides between the clifftops 270 meters above ancient ravines and the rainforest canopy. Walk on the valley floor boardwalk under a canopy of tall tree ferns. This is such a fun yet educational park, truly worth checking out.


    Sydney Opera House Tour (Essential)

    The Sydney Opera House is a miracle of architecture and engineering, a work of art that came into existence against impossible odds, to then become one of the busiest performing arts centres in the world.

    Working with rich, new audio-visual components, where images are projected onto the fabric of the building itself, your guide will take you on an emotional journey that rivals any opera plot with its dramatic twists and turns. Some 1,500 performances, from opera to circus, rock and cabaret, are staged at the Sydney Opera House each year, to audiences of around 1.5 million people.

    With 3 tours to choose from you will be spoilt for choice:

    • The Essential Tour takes you through the history and architecture. See what goes on inside Australia’s most famous building and get a brief overview of the Australian performing arts scene.
