Sydney Icons

If you are staying in Sydney as part of a longer trip, here are some quick tips on things to do that are close to the cruise terminal.

  • Sydney Opera House – it is on everybody’s bucket list and rightly so! Climb the stairs of the Opera House and you’ll be met with a beautiful view and spot more of the city’s iconic sights.
  • Harbour Bridge, locally known as the ‘Coathanger’. In fact, you can catch sight of this world-renowned symbol of Australia from almost anywhere in the city. Climbing right to the top of the bridge is the best way to experience it: take the popular BridgeClimb or climb the steps through 3 exhibits to reach the top of the Pylon Lookout.
  • Royal Botanic Garden is the oldest botanic garden in the country and has something for everyone – you can explore the plants and the history of the place on a free tour, enjoy a delicious meal in one of the many cafes, see an exhibition at the Calyx or just relax and admire the view.
  • Take a ferry, of which there are plenty around the harbour, to one of Sydney’s most popular northern beaches – Manly. This quiet and laid-back beachside town feels like miles away from the hustle and bustle of Sydney, yet it’s only a 30-minute ride from the Harbour.
  • Catch a 12-minute ferry to the Taronga Zoo from the main harbour and you’ll find yourself in a place full of hirsute Australians and numerous imported guests. You can really enjoy animal encounters here knowing that their welfare is taken very seriously.
  • Shopping is more your thing? Sydney has a grand variety of shops catering to all styles and desires. Wander along Pitt Street to visit some of the biggest department stores like Myer and David Jones. Or if you’re looking for that something special, wander down The Rocks narrow lanes and discover local boutiques. The Rocks also hosts a number of markets where you can find some handcrafted artisan gems.

The Best Time to Visit

Sydney is serviced by cruise ships all year round. If you want guaranteed good weather, choose one of the summer months for your cruise holiday.

However, the mild New South Wales climate provides for sunshine and an average of 16 degrees even in winter, so don’t be afraid to book your cruise for the period from June to August.
