Departure Locations

Cruise ships departing from the port of Sydney may actually depart from two different terminals. Some of the smaller P&O cruise ships that are able to fit under the Harbour Bridge, will depart from the White Bay Cruise Terminal (near Rozelle). Larger cruise ships (including those from all other cruise lines such as: Royal Caribbean, Carnival Cruises, Princess Cruises etc) depart from the Overseas Passenger Terminal (Circular Quay). When you make a booking, your cruise documentation will clearly state which terminal your cruise ship departs from.

How to get to the Overseas Passenger Terminal (OPT)

This is the main departure point for most cruise ships departing from Sydney. The OPT is located at Circular Quay, immediately adjacent to the Museum Of Contemporary Art (MCA) and the historic Rocks area. If you are arriving for your cruise holiday by car, you can drive right up to the drop-off point in front of the OPT. If you are arriving by train, the best option is Circular Quay train station - approximately 200m from the OPT entrance. For those flying in from interstate, get the Airport Link train from Sydney Airport heading to Circular Quay. The current (September 2019) Airport Link train prices are $19.40 per Adult, and $15.40 per Child (children under the age of 4 travel for free), with the trip taking about 18 minutes - read more here: www.airportlink.com.au/trip-information/price/. A taxi from Sydney Airport to the OPT will cost approximately $50 depending on the time of day (travelling during morning or evening peak hours will be more expensive). You can get an Uber from the Sydney Domestic Airport to Circular Quay at rates starting from $37.

How to get to the White Bay Cruise Terminal (WBCT)

This is the main departure terminal for the smaller P&O cruise ships. Access roads leading to the WBCT are restricted during cruise days. You will need to enter via The Crescent, and then proceed along James Craig Road, and then follow the clearly marked signs to the terminal. Unfortunately there is no train station nearby the terminal. If you are arriving by private transport, there is a drop off zone right in front of the terminal. If you are arriving from interstate, we suggest that you get the train from the airport to Central station, and from there get a taxi direct to the cruise terminal (average taxi fare cost about $30 depending on the time of day). For further details on how to get to this terminal, please see this page: www.cruiseagency.com.au/news/how-to-get-to-white-bay-cruise-terminal/

Things to see and do in Sydney

If you’re lucky enough to be departing from Sydney on your cruise this season, be sure to use your last few days on land to soak in the city’s countless attractions. Cruises from Sydney are some of Australia's best when it comes to on-land attractions so you can certainly expect plenty to do in the CBD and surrounds.

Dig into mouth-watering meals at King Street Wharf, fill your spare suitcase at Martin Place and Westfield and say hello to the marine animals at SeaLife Aquarium. Take a look below at the essential Sydney attractions for you and the family.

Fashion and Shopping

No stopover in Sydney would be complete without truly shopping til you drop! If you're are staying down near Circular Quay, start by walking up either Pitt Street where you will soon encounter Pitt Street Mall. This is home to several mega shopping malls including including the largest of them all Westfields Sydney. Also worth checking out nearby are David Jones, Myer and the Strand Arcade

If you love to shop for the latest fashion, then be sure to head just a few km's out of the CBD to the suburb of Paddington. Head straight to the corner of Oxford Street and Glenmore Road where you will find The Intersection Paddington which is home to the biggest range of local fashion designers in one convenient fashion shopping precinct.

By working your way from one side of the city to the other you’ll hit all of the best shopping hotspots and also be able to see some of the city’s most famous architecture on the way, like the Sydney Tower.

Food and Dining

Mouth-watering cuisines from across the globe are something you can't afford to miss when visiting Sydney. Being one of the most multicultural cities in the world means your choices of exotic and local foods are endless.

We certainly recommended booking a dinner reservation at Bennelong, a restaurant in Sydney’s Opera House. However, if you’re in the mood for brunch or little more hustle and bustle, head over to King Street Wharf where you’ll find some of the cities hottest eat and drink spots. Take your pick of seafood, Italian, Greek food and a whole lot more. A more recent addition to food and dining options within Sydney is the Barangaroo precinct, which is touted as being Sydney's new landmark waterfront destination. Barangaroo can be easily accessed by foot from the cruise terminal, starting out by walking around from The Rocks which then leads directly on to Barangaroo itself.

Family Attractions and Activities

Sydney instantly becomes an action-packed, attraction-filled oasis for those travelling with the family. There are so many hotspots to keep the kids entertained that you’ll never hear ‘I’m bored!’ again.

If you have a full free day in Sydney before your cruise departure and want to make sure there’s something the kids will love, we recommend heading north just over the Harbour Bridge to Taronga Zoo. Once you're finished there, make your way to Luna Park and once back in the city, cap off the daylight hours by saying hello to the 12,000 animals at Sea Life Aquarium and the boardwalk before 6 pm.

Finally, dinner at Circular Quay or a restaurant around Sydney Cove is a fantastic way to end the day with a view of the Sydney Opera house that even the little ones can appreciate.

Sports and Adrenaline

For the adrenaline junkie or the avid football lover, Sydney is the perfect place to be. If you’re looking to see a football game, head out kayaking on the harbour or delve into the city’s rich sporting history, we have plenty of recommendations.

We suggest getting your adrenaline rush from climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge with the ridge Climb experience - just be sure to book in advance to make sure you save your spot. Prices start at $174 for Adults, and $148 for Children, for a 1.5 Hour climb. Dawn and Twilight options are also available, these take 3.5 Hours to complete and are more expensive.

Being on the water might sound more like you, so take your pick of the city’s jet boat operators including Thunder Jet and Oz Jet Boating. Prices start from $69 from Adults and $39 for Kids. Family passes are also available $199 (2 Adults and 2 Children). This is a great option to keep the kids occupied before your cruise holiday departure, with the ride located directly opposite your cruise ship at the Eastern Promenade of Circular Quay (near the Opera House).

Football lovers have to take a look at the Events Calendar and book a ticket! Or just take a visit to your favourite stadiums, but always be sure you have a way back to the city from the stadium. You can catch a game of Rugby League or Cricket at the nearby Sydney Football Stadium and Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).

Architecture and Design

When it comes to architecture in Sydney, there are a few buildings you simply can't pass on and they’re all in the CBD!

If you’re architecture lover, leave at least half a day to travel the city and see the amazing buildings and attractions. Start the day off close to your cruise ship with the Sydney Opera House, and a 1 Hour Tour for $42 for Adults and $22 for Children. It's only a short walk from there to take in the historic State Library of NSW before making your way into the heart of the city to see the Sydney Tower, Queen Victoria Building and Australia Square.

Planning city architecture walks might not be your thing, but if Sydney’s architecture is on your sightseeing list, then consider an architecture walk with Sydney Architecture Walks.

Conclusion

And there you have it, our essential attraction guide for anyone taking cruises from Sydney. Make sure you get the most out of your few days in Sydney before or after your cruise and see all that Australia’s largest city has to offer.
