Harbour North Side
Let our knowledgeable volunteer guides take you on a half day tour of Sydney’s northern shore!
Harbour North Side adventure is a two hour cruise of the northern harbour foreshore from Bradleys Head to Balls Head taking in the headlands, bays and coves between them.
It heads deep into Mosman Bay, Neutral Bay, Careening Cove, Lavender Bay and Berrys Bay allowing guests to see the sites and hear the stories of the northern harbour’s once extensive boat and shipbuilding and engineering enterprises and former sites of heavy industry that are now public parks and reserves.
Other attractions include evidence of Aboriginal settlement; colonial defence installations; places of recreation and leisure (old and new), and places that have seen major Australian artistic achievement.
This cruise will be available on Tuesdays or Thursdays of each month for only $35 per head, including morning tea. This popular tour led by our knowledgeable volunteer guides is a great way to discover what Sydney Heritage Fleet is doing for Australia’s maritime heritage.
