Long Lunch at Sydney Harbour

Your Sydney Harbour lunch cruise will begin with a welcome from your crew as you board your luxury cruiser and depart for the harbour.

Soft drinks, sparkling wine, beer, still wine, tea, and coffee will be available from the time you step aboard. As we cruise past the world-famous landmarks of the Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House your crew will be on hand to tell you about the past and modern-day history of the harbour.

You will see Woolloomoolloo Bay, the home of the Australian Navy’s Sydney Base Garden Island, then venture further down the harbour cruising past Double Bay and Point Piper which are the locations of the most expensive homes in Sydney.

You then head past Clarke and Shark Islands which are two national parks in the middle of the harbour, with Rose Bay on your right. Shortly after you will be past Vaucluse for your entrée and first stop at the renowned Doyles on the Beach at Watsons Bay.

Disembark the boat and head down the wharf to the restaurant where you will have a choice of entrees and a selection of beverages to choose from to accompany.

After you have finished dining on your delicious entree, it will be time to head back to the boat where we head off again for the main course. Once back on board we will cruise past the opening of Sydney Heads with Manly off to our right and around Middle Head into Middle Harbour where we will stop at the Balmoral Jetty where you will disembark again for your main course at the Balmoral Public Dining Room.

Here you will choose your main course from the menu and have a selection of beverages to choose from to accompany. After you have finished dining on your sumptuous lunch it will be time to head back to the boat where you will then head up to Spit Bridge and beyond to see some amazing landscapes and homes perched on the cliffs of Sydney’s upper-class North Shore district.

Whilst onboard you will be able to have your dessert from the dessert and cheese platters. Your return will be back through Middle Harbour and then reenter the main harbour where you will see the northern shores of Sydney Harbour. Cruise past Taronga Zoo and the prime minister’s house.

There is even an opportunity to stop for a swim if you choose, time permitting. This cruise is the long lunch and really does show you all the beauty of Sydney Harbour.
