Sydney Rocks New Year Spectacular Luxury Adventure Cruise

5 Days
On request

Start the New Year with a bang as the True North anchors “bridge-side” for one of the world’s most spectacular fireworks displays. Afterwards, soak up the tranquility of the Hawkesbury, a stunning wilderness on the doorstep of Australia’s largest city.

Begin this 5-day cruise by ringing in the New Year on the waters of Sydney’s Harbour before exploring the wild bays to the north.

Your cruise starts in Sydney, Australia’s largest city. Tour the unforgettable Sydney Opera House and say “G’day” to kangaroos, koalas and other marsupials at the Taronga Zoo before hitting the water on the Truth North. Sail up to Sydney’s Middle Harbour before finding a prime spot on the water to watch the New Year’s Eve fireworks off the iconic Harbour Bridge.

The Truth North is a small luxury cruise vessel that carries a maximum of 36 passengers. The fully-equipped vessel has an upscale bar, lounge, dining room and observation deck, as well as an onboard helicopter. It’s well suited for maximum comfort as you explore the waters north of Sydney.

Just north of Sydney is Jerusalem Bay and the Hawkesbury River. This wild, tranquil region boasts honeycombed cliffs and crystal blue waters. Explore the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, one of the country’s oldest natural protection areas. Take a helicopter ride to Hunter Valley and sample the region’s celebrated wines. Hike the Jerusalem Bay Bush Track and swim in the crystal waters of the bay.

This cruise around the waters of Sydney is a perfect way to start your year off right.
