Sydney Harbour Cruise and Goat Island Walking Tour

Goat Island Sydney Harbour Tall Ship Cruise

Board your Sydney Harbour tall ship, the Southern Swan at Campbell’s Cove, in Sydney’s historical Rocks district. While cruising to Goat Island, see Sydney's palatial harbor-side homes and learn about the history of some of Sydney Harbour’s landmarks like Kirribilli House, Fort Denison and Admiralty House. You’ll also enjoy the views of two world-famous attractions, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House.

Goat Island, which has restricted, limited access, is the largest of the islands in Sydney Harbour. Over the years, Goat Island has served as a quarry, convict stockade, explosives store, police station and fire station. Today the island forms part of the Sydney Harbour National Park.

On a 1-mile (1.5-km) guided walking tour, learn about Goat Island’s colorful past and visit some of Australia's most important and intact convict-built structures. Take in the historic surroundings, and visit the early-1800s military gun-powder magazine, the soldiers’ barracks complex and Sydney’s oldest water police station. You’ll learn what convict life was like on Goat Island, from their punishments to their cramped sleeping quarters and food.

After your guided walking tour receive a complimentary drink before re-boarding the tall ship. Then it’s time to relax and enjoy a cold buffet feast with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine! As you eat, enjoy the surrounding views of Sydney Harbour before returning back to Campbell's Cove.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

An excellent tour, the second time I've been on it but this time was on the tall ship. Great hosts, friendly and knowledgeable, also very amusing. Good tasty food too. Even though the weather was against us we had a brilliant time. Would definitely recommend.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

A very nice trip on a sunny day. The only problem was that there were not enough seats for all the passangers on the boat.
