See the Start of the Sydney-Hobart Race

The start of the Sydney to Hobart race is just one reason to enjoy a spectacular day out on our majestic harbour. The race, which covers 630 nautical miles and has been running annually since 1945, will commence when a cannon blast signals the start of the event.

Join us as we witness the start of another chapter in this inspiring challenge of man vs. nature. Not only are prime views of the start of the race part of your experience, but passengers are greeted with a champagne cocktail welcome drink as they step aboard before enjoying delicious canapes that will be served throughout the cruise.

As always, there are two bars on-board with some great drink specials to top off your afternoon in the harbour. An amazing race, food, refreshments, sights, and sounds; it’s all yours with this Boxing Day cruise in Sydney Harbour that’s got to be on your list of things to do this holiday season.
