Half Day Tours for Groups

Icons of Sydney Harbour


Let our knowledgeable volunteer guides take you on a tour of Sydney’s iconic landmarks and places, as seen from its wonderful harbour—itself often referred to as Sydney’s No. 1 icon.

The Icons tour begins with morning tea at Yots Café on the Darling Harbour waterfront outside the Australian National Maritime Museum. Unlike other harbour tours on ferries and cruise boats, our motor launch Harman (c.1943) can take you in close to the shoreline to get amazing views of some 20 or so Sydney icons, some well-known, some surprises and some controversial—and we can tell you about one icon forgotten by most people. Barangaroo, the Opera House, historic mansions and Garden Island naval base are just a few icons you will see up close. And for those who loved our Seven Islands tour west of the Harbour Bridge, this tour takes you past four of the five islands east of the bridge.

The tour finishes back at the Australian National Maritime Museum wharf around 12.30pm for lunch at Yots Café, if your group takes up the $15 lunch deal. Menu choices and an order form will be attached to the booking confirmation.

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: 24

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.
