Half Day Cruise for Groups

Harbour North Side


Let our knowledgeable volunteer guides take you on a cruise to discover the stories of Sydney’s northern harbour foreshore!

We begin with a morning tea at Yots Café on the Darling Harbour waterfront outside the Australian National Maritime Museum. The cruise on our small motor launch Harman (c.1943) focusses on the northern harbour foreshore between Bradleys Head and Balls Head, heading deeper into the bays and coves than commercial vessels can manage. Passengers will see the sites and hear the stories of the northern harbour’s once extensive boat and shipbuilding and engineering enterprises; former sites of heavy industry that are now public parks and reserves; Aboriginal settlement; colonial defence installations; places of recreation and leisure (old and new), and places that have seen major Australian artistic achievement.

The cruise finishes back at the Australian National Maritime Museum wharf by 12.30pm for lunch at Yots Café, if your group takes up the $20 lunch deal. Menu choices and an order form will be attached to the booking confirmation.

Our guides will meet your group at 9.45am 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 9.45am.
