Jump aboard Wangi Queen Ferry and cruise Sydney Harbour on an intriguing tour that combines one of the most captivating prisoner stories in the world at Goat Island, a visit to Sydney’s oldest Water Police Station, and a champagne lunch.
What to Expect
Cruise over to Goat Island in Sydney Harbour on board a 1920s ferry. Lying off the shores of Balmain and Millers Point, and at the junction with Darling Harbour, the rocky outcrop tells one of the most fascinating tales of convicts in the world.
As you step ashore you will be walking in the footsteps of Australia's early prisoners. Take a guided tour to see intact convict-built buildings. Experience the historic surrounds, built with the help of convict labor. Visit the amazing early 1800s military gun powder magazine, the solders’ barracks complex, and Sydney’s oldest Water Police Station. It’s an easy 1-mile (1.5-kilometer) walk, but with a glorious backdrop of the best views of Sydney Harbour.
Then, enjoy a sumptuous lunch buffet, served with a glass of bubbly. Look across the harbor at the city sights, and make use of the complimentary bar, including more bubbly, cold beer, wine and soft drinks.
