There can't be many more iconic images of Australia than those of the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, or 'The Coathanger' as some Sydneysiders affectionately call it. Situated in one of the world's most stunning and beautiful harbours, and nearby the international cruise terminals (you can catch a ferry or stroll to both attractions!), you can't fail to be impressed by the location of Sydney and it's surrounds.
For many, a cruise in or around Australia and New Zealand will be the trip of a lifetime; a one off itinerary that ticks all your bucket list requirements, so it makes perfect sense to combine your cruise with a stay in this amazing city or her surroundings. At Cruise1st our Australian land tours are chosen carefully to provide you with the best possible experience of the New South Wales region.
We often run escorted tours combined, or you can choose one of the many options such as the choices below; from tasting the big reds and champagne at the vineyard cellar doors or hitting the gourmet food trail in the beautiful Hunter Valley, to heading into the stunning Blue Mountains to visit the forests and mountain scenery that makes this one of the most popular day tours from Sydney. And of course, why not take a look around Sydney itself, with a harbour cruise or a ferry ride, an Opera House tour, or even a Bridge Climb on the Iconic Harbour Bridge for the more adventurous.
Pick up your coach at Circular Quay and begin with Tour of Sydney including the Opera house before travelling to scenic Katoomba in the Blue Mountains for an overnight stay in a local Bed & Breakfast.
After breakfast visit stunning Echo Point and the world famous 3 Sisters lookouts, head to Scenic World where you can experience the worlds steepest vertical railway taking you to the valley floor for a rainforest walk, or take the glass bottomed cable car high above the forest canopy and explore the waterfalls that cascade down from the cliffs. Lunch (at your own expense) before travelling to the Hunter Valley, stay overnight with Breakfast.
After breakfast, call at 2 vineyards before visiting the relaxing Hunter Valley Gardens. After the morning touring transfer back to Sydney for an overnight stay with Breakfast.
