Sydney Sights & Pacific Nights III

Darling Harbour has been receiving cruise ships for decades, and the view from a cruise ship is still as welcoming a sight as ever. Seeing Sydney come in to view by landmarks like the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Taronga Zoo and the Sydney Opera House is an overwhelming experience. This is why we chose to create a short Cruise n Coach Holiday experience from Brisbane to Sydney. If you’ve ever wanted to test the waters of cruising holidays, this is the perfect opportunity with a short, 3 night cruise as well as 2 fun filled days of sightseeing in Sydney. This will be the third Sydney Sights Cruise n Coach Holiday we’ve coordinated, after consecutive sell-out tours with overwhelmingly positive feedback. This time we’re changing things up a little to make the most of the time in the city with a host of fun and exciting experiences.

Depart Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport for Sydney where the fun begins immediately. First, explore the Historic Rocks area and take a short sightseeing tour before lunch. Visit Farm Cove and Mrs. Macquaries Chair, for arguably the best views of Sydney Harbour, then hit Bondi Beach! The full day in Sydney kicks off with a wonderful guided tour under the sails of the Sydney Opera House, then take to the sky in the Sydney Tower Observation Deck for views of the Blue Mountains, the Harbour and Botany Bay. Wander and explore Darling Harbour before another exciting and informative guided tour, this time Sydney Olympic Park! On your last morning in Sydney, visit the animals with the best real estate in town, at Taronga Park Zoo. Later, arrive at the cruise terminal to board the Sun Princess for a 2 night cruise to Brisbane. Depart Sydney Harbour under the bridge this afternoon, then begin exploring and experiencing the huge range of entertainment on board. The ship arrives in Brisbane after 2 nights and from there, we’ll return you to Toowoomba.
