The city of Sydney is our most iconic city. It is internationally renowned for its history, its sights, and its culture. Places such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge attract millions of tourists from around the world every year and contribute to our nation’s image among people around the world. All too often though, we ignore the sights in our own backyard. As Australians we sometimes forget that our very own cities, and Sydney in particular, offer a wealth of experiences.
Cruising the Harbour
One of the best ways to see the sights of Darling Harbour and Sydney is to book one of the many professionally run Sydney Harbour cruises. So, why should you book such a cruise? Consider the following:
- An afternoon experience: If you really want to get a taste of what the first settlers saw when they entered Sydney Harbour, the only way to do it is on a cruise. Just imagine their wooden ships as they sailed past the rocky outcrops near the mouth of the harbour and were presented with a beautiful landscape. When you go on short afternoon cruise around the harbour, you get to see the place like you’ve never seen it before. You’ll also get a nice lunch served to you as you take in the sights, smells, and sounds of this unique harbour that is considered one of the most beautiful in the world.
- The romantic experience: Are you looking for something truly different to do this Valentine’s day? Maybe you just want to show your partner how much you care about them? In this case, there’s nothing quite like a cruise after dark with wine and canapes. Just imagine cruising the harbour and taking in the iconic Sydney Opera House as you sip on quality Australian wine with your loved one. The sounds of acoustic music will add just the right amount of romance to the evening.
- Celebrate New Year in style: Sydney is home to one of the most spectacular fireworks shows in Australia on New Year’s Eve. Imagine being able to enjoy all of the lights, fireworks, and music from the deck of a cruise ship in the harbour? It’s the most coveted position from which to view the New Year’s fireworks and bring in the new year. If you’re sick of going to the same places on NYE, why not book a Sydney Harbour cruise instead?
Not Just For Couples
Of course, cruising Sydney Harbour is not just for couples who are interested in romance. If you have a family, the kids can learn a lot and have fun, while also seeing the iconic sights of this international city.
Furthermore, imagine being able to book a cruise with your workmates for a corporate event. It’s a great way to build team bonds and enjoy a light lunch at the same time. Celebrate the birthday of a colleague or a blow-out at the end of the financial year.
