Why Travelers Choose This Tour
Opt for this cruise for a more in-depth harbor tour, as Goat Island can only be visited with a guide.
Make your own way to Campbell Cove, located in Sydney’s historic Rocks district, and step on board a traditional vessel for your cruise over to Goat Island, part of Sydney Harbour National Park.
As you cross the harbor, take in clear views of waterside mansions and note Sydney Harbour landmarks like Kirribilli House, Fort Denison and Admiralty House. Enjoy a great vantage point on two of Sydney's most famous attractions: the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House.
Upon your arrival at Goat Island, follow your expert guide for a one-mile (1.5-km) walking tour. Learn about Goat Island’s long history as you visit important sites such as the soldiers’ barracks, the Queens Magazine—where gunpowder was stored in the early 1800s, and the oldest water police station in Sydney. Hear about the tough conditions for convicts who were sent to Goat Island to labor in the quarries, and see some of Australia's most intact and important convict-built structures.
Wind down after your guided walking tour with a complimentary sparkling wine before returning to your vessel. Back on board, have time to relax and snack on a cold buffet lunch that is served with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine or juice. Continue to soak in stunning views as the ferry cruises around Sydney Harbour before returning to Campbell's Cove at the end of your 3-hour tour.
