Return Details

Returns to original departure point
In the early hours of New Year’s Eve, make your own way to Wharf 2 in Walsh Bay to board your tall-ship cruise. You have a choice of sailing on either the Soren Larsen or the Southern Swan, both of which are modeled on the classic square-rigged style ship of the 1850s.

Sip a glass of complimentary wine, beer, bubbly, or soda as your ship sets sail on the festively lit harbor. You can soak up the sight of the sparkling city skyline and harbor from comfortable interior cabins or exterior decks as your sturdy ship glides around Sydney Harbour.

Your dinner includes a delicious barbecue spread with a selection of international dishes made with fresh seafood, vegetables, and meats. Desserts, tea, and coffee, plus unlimited wine, beer, and soft drinks are served with your meal.

You’ll have the best views in the city when Sydney’s famous fireworks display lights up the skies at 9pm and midnight. A parade of colorful ships will be on the water, too.

Your New Year’s Eve dinner cruise ends after five and a half hours when you return to the dock.

The harbour point was hard to find, others had just as much difficulty as us. The person of contact wasn't visable, but he started running around so everyone found him. The location of the ship was great, the food was pretty good, the unlimited drinks were good and they didn't make us feel bad since I don't drink. But the 5 hours of Irish folk music really got to me by the end of the nite. It wasn't music to dance by, the 1st hour was alright but after awhile it was annoying. And since every boat was in the harbour we had to wait to dock, unfortunately we were one of the last ones to dock. So sitting in the harbour for an hour, with boat fumes wasn't great. We got back to the dock at 2am. The fireworks were great and considering the view it was very memorable.

Ein einmaliges Erlebnis - Sylvesterfeuerwerk vor der Harbourbridge!!! Die Wegbeschreibung war nicht wirklich hilfreich um die Abfahrtsstelle zu finden und der angegebene Zeitpunkt war eine Stunde zu früh angegeben. Das hat das Erlebnis aber nicht geschmälert . Essen und Trinken an Bord war ausgezeichnet und genügend . Crew war freundlich und sehr gut aufgelegt! Würde ich jederzeit wieder machen .
