Come with us for a wonderful day of amazing sights and ships on beautiful Sydney Harbour.

PLEASE NOTE: revised start time of 9:15am

We start first at the Australian National Maritime Museum in Darling Harbour with a full in-depth tour of Daring class Destroyer HMA Ship Vampire. We will go behind the scenes as our inspection covers internal areas of the ship not normally open to the public.

This will be followed by a four hour cruise on board the Sydney Heritage Fleet’s preserved steam tug Waratah around Sydney Harbour. Depending on the harbour conditions, our trip will cover the lower reaches of the Parramatta river and Port Jackson in the direction of Middle Harbour. Enjoy the magnificent scenic vistas and take in the sights and sounds, while we travel at a leisurely pace on this marvellous steamship from long gone era. Afternoon tea aboard is included on the trip.

Our day will commence with a meeting Under Pyrmont Bridge next to the National Maritime Musuem at 9:15am (closest station is Town Hall) and our trip will end at Victoria Road Rozelle (Steamship Heritage Ship Yard) around 4:45pm.
