A Guide to Unforgettable Harbour Experiences

The perfect guide to unforgettable experiences with a Sydney Harbour yacht charter.

Summer is one of the most magical times in Sydney as there is just so much to do. It is no surprise that year after year, our beautiful harbour maintains its status as one of the most hashtagged destinations in the world. We have put together a guide for that ultimate and unforgettable Sydney Harbour experience.

Take a hike

Enjoy the spectacular views of Shark Island, Strickland House and Sydney’s Harbour Bridge on the breath-taking Hermitage Foreshore track that runs from Rose Bay to Nielsen Park. Along the way, have a stroll and swim at the pristine Milk Beach- one of Sydney’s most beautiful hidden beaches. Tucked away in leafy Vaucluse, you’ll feel like you’re the first person to discover this tranquil and secluded spot. Continue the walk until you reach the iconic, postcard-worthy Nielsen Park- where you can enjoy another perfect swim or simply take in the beauty and vibrant atmosphere.

Stay at Pier One

If you’re looking for a harbour stay right on the water, request the Admiral Suite at Pier One at Walsh Bay. Complete with a luxurious bathroom with floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open up to the spectacular balcony, you will experience unbelievable panoramic views of the Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge and Luna Park. Pier One offers a range of beautiful rooms with spectacular harbour views that are sure to dazzle and impress locals and visitors alike. https://www.pieronesydneyharbour.com.au/

It’s no secret that the magnificent Sydney Harbour is best explored by boat charter.

Indulge in chartering your very own vessel from Sydney Harbour Exclusive for a private and luxurious harbour adventure like no other.

Embark on a historic adventure

Spend the day exploring Cockatoo Island’s rich historic past by embarking on a guided tour, audio tour or the popular self-guided Ghosts of Biloela tour. You can expect picture-perfect views of the Harbour Bridge from the Biloela Lawn, the convict precinct with original sandstone buildings and former shipbuilding sites. Pack a picnic, use the barbecue facilities to cook up a storm or simply have a bite at Societe Overboard before watching the sun go down. You can also stay overnight in one of the quaint but comfortable accommodations available. http://www.cockatooisland.gov.au/

Do some iconic laps

Head straight to Bondi Icebergs for some laps in the sun in the most popular and historic location in Sydney. The famous saltwater rock pool is the only one of its kind and boasts an incredible atmosphere. After you dry off from your dip, head to the Icebergs Restaurant upstairs for a beautiful meal and cocktail with panoramic views of Bondi Beach. https://icebergs.com.au/swimming-pool/

Unwind and catch a Harbourside film

Recline on a blanket with a wonderful picnic while catching a movie at Mrs Macquaries Point. Check the movie schedule and select from new films such as Glass and Bohemian Rhapsody or cult classics such as Pulp Fiction or Mean Girls. It’s one of the best inexpensive week-night treats that combines entertainment, fresh air and beautiful harbour views. https://www.stgeorgeopenair.com.au/
