Sydney Sundancer

Sydney Sundancer is a ketch rigged motor sailing yacht, thus combining the stability and comfort of a motor boat with the grace and serenity of a sailing yacht, and is licensed to carry in excess of 70 guests plus crew. However, we prefer to limit the number of guests to around 50 thus ensuring everyone's personal comfort at all times (through adequate space). She is super luxuriously fitted in teak below deck (see attachments) and there is a large canopy which extends virtually the whole length of the vessel giving perfect protection in all weathers. We have won the prestigious Australian Bridal Industry Academy (ABIA) award for the Best Wedding Reception Vessel in Australia in 2007 & 2010 (this award is judged over 3 years to demonstrate consistent excellence) and in 2008 we were inducted into the ABIA "Hall of Fame" (only 6 wedding suppliers in the whole of Australia have been so honoured). This is particularly noteworthy because ACTUAL Bridal appraisal of our service (in a number of categories including "value for money") in their own wedding, is THE evaluation criteria on which the award is based ! We are also the only charter boat ever, to win both the City of Sydney Council Award for The Best Decorated Boat on New Years Eve, and The Australia Day Council's award for The Best Presented / Best Decorated Charter Boat on Sydney Harbour (2000, 2001, 2002, 2007, 2010, 2011, 2012 & 2013), so you will appreciate just how much effort we invest in making each and every cruise a success !!

We decided to celebrate NYE fireworks on board the Sydney Sundancer. There were approxinately 50 people for this excursion that started 5:30pm-1:30am. The captain and his crew are warm, friendly and professional. They made sure everyone had fun without compromising safety. The boat is clean and well maintained. Champagne, wine, beer and refreshments were served all night. Liver pate and lobster were passed as appetizers. Dinner buffet was excellent: roast beef, Turkey, ham, salmon, shrimp and oysters along with various salads. We had an unobstructed view of the fireworks. A memorable evening and the best New Year's Eve celebration. Thanks to the captain and crew for making us feel appreciated and certainly special.

Sydney Harbour

Secluded Beaches, quiet coves and soaring headlands predominate this harbor, which is considered one of the world's most beautiful.

Started the day walking from Paddington to Hyde Park (about 20min). We started at Hyde Park and strolled through this great park. We then headed towards the Domain, which then led us to the Royal Botanical Garden, which then led us to the Sydney Harbour.
Here you can go to the Opera house (left) or we went (right) over to Mrs. Macquarie’s chair/point.
From the point we headed back towards the botanical Gardens and stopped by the art museum for a snack. The cafe was great and just what we needed.
After this we headed back to our place in Paddington.
Was a great day for sight seeing the best of Sydney.
ENJOY!

Wendy Whiteley's Secret Garden

Everyone needs a secret garden in their life and you’re invited to visit Wendy's, a public garden and much loved oasis in the heart of Sydney. Located a short walk over the Sydney Harbour Bridge, or stroll from Milsons Point and North Sydney train stations, the Secret Garden is a haven where you can explore meandering pathways discovering sculptures; enjoy a picnic basket or read a book at one of the tables beneath the garden’s canopy; or simply enjoy the nature and serenity of your beautiful surrounds. You may even stumble across a fairy. Created over 20 years by artist Wendy Whiteley, wife and muse of Australian artist Brett Whiteley, the Secret Garden is nestled behind Luna Park in one of Sydney's most spectacular suburbs, Lavender Bay. While its free and open seven days a week, there are steep inclines and a range of steps. Visitors with limited mobility may only be able to access the uppermost sections of the garden but we're sure you'll enjoy your visit.

Wendy’s Secret Gardens is amazing! She built her Gardens on terraces and in the background we see the city.
The first view I saw was trees and flowers with a view on the Sydney Harbor Bridge.
We explored everything. Everything was planted with care. There were numerous flowers to discover. As well as views and trees and plants.
We spent more than an hour to explore it and we were able to see the outside of Wendy’s home. She did a fantastic job.
Interestingly enough, we saw many young people on the grass.
However, I will always remember this terraced Gardens. Wow!
This is a must see!

I make a trip here every time I come to Sydney. There are branded shops as well as cheaper ones like Cotton On, cafes and a Coles supermarket downstairs. There is also a food court and a discount store. If you are tired there are benches in the public sections with USB charging ports. Recommended to spend an afternoon here!

Sydney Harbour Bridge

Spanning the city center to the North Shore, the Sydney Harbour Bridge is a wide steel arch bridge known for its beauty as well as function, providing a crossing for cars, trains, bikes and pedestrians. While the more daring can do the BridgeClimb to the top of the structure, opened to traffic in 1932, anyone can enjoy a walk for free.

This is very well organised and everything is done to ensure your safety and comfort. It is not made clear on the website but the suit they give you is worn over underwear (your clothes and belongings go into a locker). They also provide a headset (so that everyone can hear the guide), cap, hanky (!), rainwear (just in case), straps for your glasses/sunglasses. Everything is clipped to the suit for safety. You practise climbing using the safery line before venturing out.
The actual climb lasts two hours. This is not too onerous as there are stops to admire the fantastic views, listen to the guide, ask questions, have your photo taken.
The photos were good quality and good value.
My only criticism is that the cost of the climb is excessive in my view. Having said that, we really enjoyed the experience.

Picked up the Manly Ferry from Circular Key, Sydney. The atmosphere around Sydney harbour is exhilarating and captivating. Took the Ferry to Manly passing the Diamond Princess which was berthed near the ferry terminal. Nice relaxing 30 minute journey to Manly taking in the beautiful scenery along the way. As a local, I do this with the family at least once a month, for a visitor it's must do. There is no better way to see Sydney Harbour then to take the Manly Ferry. Highly recommend this trip.

James Craig Tall Ship

Barque James Craig is rightly famous around the world. She is Sydney’s only 19th Century square rigger (or Tall Ship) and her incredible restoration to full sailing condition was recognised in 2003 by the World Ship Trust’s award of their prestigious Maritime Medal. Her restoration cost almost $A30 million and took nearly 40 years to complete after she was rescued from Recherche Bay in far southern Tasmania. This beautiful ship regularly goes to sea with up to 80 passengers and is open for public inspection at her berth at Wharf 7, 58 Pirrama Road, Pyrmont. She is also available for charter and for functions. Tall Ship James Craig is looked after by Sydney Heritage Fleet, a community-based non-profit organisation, with the following mission: To build and maintain an internationally recognised centre of excellence in maritime heritage for the benefit of all Australians by presenting through research, acquisition, conservation, restoration, education and operation, our continuing maritime history. The Fleet is funded through donations, membership subscriptions and income from vessel charters and tours. The Fleet’s 1200 strong membership and 450 dedicated volunteer workers restore, operate and maintain the fleet of vintage vessels. In the process they preserve traditional technical methods and skills.

Booked 9 months ago to go on the James Craig whilst visiting Sydney after Reading previous reviews and wow what an evening, Our best New years eve ever. Got on board to be greeted by the crew and given a drink which flowed all night, crew kept coming round with canapes. Then after the 9pm fireworks and taking part in the light parade, a full buffet was served downstairs. The excellent band played all evening up on deck. Plenty of room on the ship and then to be moored so close to the bridge for the fireworks was a dream. Would love to be able to experience this all again.
