Things to do in Sydney

When it comes to choosing a holiday destination - Sydney has it all. White sandy beaches, beautiful botanical gardens, thousands of shops, bars and restaurants, and a laid-back lifestyle that makes so many people go there and never come back. 

Climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge is a popular activity, whether you choose dawn, dusk or somewhere in between for your climb you'll witness spectacular views like no other. Take the ferry from Sydney Harbour, past the iconic Sydney Opera House and visit Manly, a lively coastal peninsula with a beach on each side.

Families with children will love Taronga Zoo - a great place to see koalas, kangaroos, platypus and Tasmanian Devil's amongst other animals. Nature-lovers will enjoy the famous Bondi to Coogee coastal trail - 6km walk through scenic eastern Sydney Beaches. The Blue Mountains are also a must see - located a two-hour drive from Sydney the natural beauty of this area is simply stunning.

Cruise and Stay Holidays

Australia isn't the easiest place in the word to get to from the UK. And there's so much to see and do in and around Sydney that flying there and leaving on a ship the next day seems like madness. In fact, Sydney os the perfect place to extend your holiday with a hotel stay. Staying for a few nights either before or after your cruise is a great idea to really appreciate this captivating part of the world. 

Just call our Cruise Concierge team who will be happy to add a hotel stay in to the price of your cruise holiday.

Where can I cruise to from Sydney?

Australia is such a big place that it's easy to fill a cruise itinerary without leaving the county! Popular Australian ports of call include the cities of Cairns, Melbourne and Darwin. But Australia isn't all about the city life, far from it! Ports such as Airlie Beach and Willis Island are ideal stops for exploring paradise islands, snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef and trying your hand at watersports.

Neighbouring New Zealand is a popular stop on cruises out of Sydney. Here you can experience the sweeping vistas made famous by the Lord of the Rings movies, marvelling at the mountains, lakes and glaciers. You'll find plenty of museums, shops and restaurants in cities such as Auckland and Wellington.

The Pacific Islands are accessible with cruises out of Sydney. You can experience the most laid-back tropical paradises in the world as you visit the Fiji Islands, Vanuatu's curiously-named Mystery Island and the French Polynesian resorts of Bora Bora and Tahiti.

Longer voyages will take you from Sydney to Hong Kong or Singapore. Calling at ports across China, Japan, Thailand and Vietnam along the way, these itineraries are a cultural delight. If you're after something really special, how about a half world cruise, travelling from Sydney back to Southampton either via Cape Town and around Africa, or via Dubai and through the Suez Canal.
