Half Day Cruise for Groups


Let our knowledgeable volunteer guides take you on a cruise up close to the iconic places surrounded by Jacaranda in bloom along the shores of the Lane Cove River, only seen from Sydney’s wonderful harbour.

Jacaranda Cruises runs from late October into November.

For a short time every spring our historic launch Harman voyages across Sydney Harbour to cruise the lower Lane Cove River so that you can view the purple tide of Jacaranda trees blooming in the gardens of Hunters Hill and the North Shore.  These gardens seen from the water give you an uninterrupted view of the shoreline as it was envisaged by some of the founding fathers of Hunters Hill, the Jouberts, who handed out trees in the 1860’s for the early inhabitants to plant in their gardens to enhance the new suburb. 

Outings for those cruises are limited so please book early!!


Group Bookings are taken for Tuesdays and Thursdays at $35 per person.

Minimum passenger numbers: 15 (or groups of fewer than 15 pay $525)
Maximum passenger numbers: 22

Our guides will meet your group at 9.45 am at the Two Anchors in the paved area outside the Australian National Maritime Museum main doors, at the western end of Pyrmont Bridge, Pyrmont. Groups members need to arrive at Pyrmont before 9.45 am.
