ITINERARY

Day 1: Welcome To Sydney
Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Learn More @ www.nibblesipstours.com

This is your international flight day. Flights arrive into Sydney at all times of day and night, so please ensure that you are arriving on the correct day. You may depart your home city one or two days prior (especially because of the time difference). Please ask us for recommended flights out of your home city.

No matter what time you arrive, your tour leader will be waiting to greet you at the airport to transfer you to the hotel. You may have some free time today to enjoy the city on your own, or ask your tour leader for suggestions on what to do.

Tonight, we have a Welcome Dinner as a group. Your tour leader will give you the information upon arrival.

Day 2: Enjoying A Gourmet Food And Wine Experience In The Hunter Valley
Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Learn More @ www.nibblesipstours.com

We are going to jump right into our food and wine experience here in Australia by starting out with a full day tour to the Hunter Valley with a local chef. We do have an e early morning pickup right from our hotel, but not to worry, our guide will welcome us with a selection of healthy snacks to keep us all satisfied until breakfast.

Our first stop of the day is the Sydney Fish Markets. We can kick-start the day by grabbing a coffee as we explore and learn about the Markets. We can watch the auction floor in action or join our guide as buyers select locally caught seafood for their day’s menu. A little later we will indulge in a freshly cooked hot breakfast beside the picturesque Hawkesbury River.

Our private transport takes us along the picturesque convict built Great North Road as our guide shares information about the Hunter Valley’s fascinating history and unique wine varieties. Upon reaching the Hunter Valley we stop in the historic hamlet of Wollombi for the first tasting of the day. Roll your own sushi ‘the way you like it’. Select the wine you think best matches it as you sample and learn about Wollombi wines from the winemakers themselves.

Our journey continues past rolling hills to the next handpicked winery with panoramic views of the Great Dividing Range. Here we discover locally made wines as we graze on delicious dishes, prepared by your guide/chef, designed to match the tasting. The Hunter Valley is also known for its quality regional produce like olive oils, chutneys, olives and chili sauces. If time permits, we will include a stop at a favourite local produce store, which means you can try as many delicacies as you like. You can relish in the pleasure of tasting Barramundi and Kangaroo with Hunter Semillon and Shiraz. Then devour a decadent dessert accompanied with sweet dessert wine to wrap up your gourmet experience before we return to Sydney. The rest of the evening is free to enjoy the city.

Day 3: The Sites Of Sydney
Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Learn More @ www.nibblesipstours.com

Circular Quay is an ideal place to start exploring the city, so after breakfast we head off to start our walking tour. Located on the north side of the Central Business District, Circular Quay is the beating heart of Sydney. While the harbor hosts top Sydney landmarks, it also has historical significance. Circular Quay was the landing site for the first ships carrying European convicts. It was from the penal colony built on the shores that Sydney grew into the city it is today.

Our next stop is by far, the most recognizable Sydney landmark. The iconic Opera House took 14 years to complete (1959-1973) and stands today as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We will be joining a site tour here to get the most of the facility. We will discover the stories, history, and magic of the Opera House as we follow our guide underneath the sails and into the UNESCO World Heritage masterpiece. The opera house is home to 1,000 rooms, 300 corridors, and hundreds of tales and secrets. We step inside the inspired theatres where more than 1,600 performances come to life each year, and learn how Danish architect Jorn Utzon’s groundbreaking design and vision for a world-class performing arts came into existence. We will spend about an hour on the tour, and can take a coffee or snack break after this if the group wants to.

From here we are going to continue walking a short distance to The Domain. Originally used as a small farm for the penal colony, today the Domain comprises the expansive green space to the east of the city center. We continue on to the the Government House, which is the vice-regal residence of the New South Wales’ Governor. The grand interior is open to visitors, as is the garden, which provides stunning views of the harbor and Sydney Opera House, so we obviously have to pop in here to really enjoy it.

Continuing on, we head to the Royal Botanic Gardens. Established in 1816, these gardens feature an array of plant life. On route to our next stop we will pass by a famous stone bench. Hand-carved by convicts in 1810, the stone bench – now known as Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair – was a gift to the wife of the New South Wales governor. The viewpoint of the harbor from here is amazing – and especially of the Opera House and Bridge. Time for a picture stop! Our next destination is Finger Wharf, the longest wooden-piled wharf in the world, measuring 1,345-feet-long. The wharf was built in 1915 and used for 70 years as a busy shipping wharf. It fell to disuse in the 1970s, but has recently been revitalized with an upscale hotel/housing/restaurant complex. It makes sense that we stop in this area to have lunch, perhaps at the famous Harry’s Café de Wheels. A Sydney institution, this cafe has been serving ‘Pie ‘n Peas’ since the late 1930s and is claimed to be Sydney’s best pie.

When our bellies are full and we are rejuvenated, we walk on to discover some of the older buildings in the area. Starting with the Art Gallery of New South Wales. The Art Gallery exhibitions include a range of art, including works from Australian and European masters, as well as entire galleries dedicated to Aboriginal and Asian works. If the group wants, we can stop here for a visit, or continue on to the State Library, which was established in 1826 and is the oldest library in Australia. As well, the New South Wales legislature offices and chambers are housed in a complex on Macquarie Street nearby. Although the structure was expanded and renovated over the years, the historic Parliament House dates to the early 1800s. The next building we see will be the Old Sydney Hospital. Nicknamed the Rum Hospital because profits from rum sales were used to fund the building, the Sydney Hospital is the oldest public building in the city. Built in 1811, the structure is still used as a hospital today, specializing in ophthalmology and hand surgery. The bronze boar, Il Porcellino, that sits outside is said to bring you good luck if you rub its snout.

We will also see the grand façade of St. Mary’s Catholic Cathedral. The towers here stand at 245 feet – and make St. Mary’s one of the tallest churches in Australia. Our next destination is the Australian Museum. Opened in 1857, this is the oldest museum in Australia. The collection is comprised of zoological and anthropological displays. We will nip in here to spend some time admiring the displays.

Our ultimate destination today is The Rocks. The land was first settled by Aboriginal People – there is evidence of their presence dating to the 1400s. In the late 1700s, the area became home to convicts sent from England. In the mid-1800s, The Rocks had grown into a port city full of debauchery. Then, in 1900, the plague broke out and The Rocks fell to the slums. The history of The Rocks – and of Sydney – is detailed at The Rocks Discovery Museum. Full of artifacts and stories dating back to the Gadigal people, the museum chronicles the events of The Rocks. This might be a perfect area to take a break and have a snack or a coffee.

If the group wants, we can continue walking to the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Nicknamed ‘The Coathanger’ because of its long arch, the steel bridge is used by trains, cars, bikes and pedestrians. We can slowly make our way back to the hotel, or, if the group wants, we can head to a great dinner spot to eat together.

Day 4: Heading To The Blue Mountains
Blue Mountains National Park, New South Wales, Australia
Learn More @ www.nibblesipstours.com

This morning we want to set off early in order to really enjoy the full day in the famous Blue Mountains. These mountains get their name from the natural blue haze created by vast eucalypt forests in this World Heritage area. Tiny droplets of oil released from the trees mix with water vapour and sunlight to produce the distinctive colour.

Along the way we can marvel at this wilderness region from cliff top lookouts. It is approximately 2 hours from Sydney to our destination this morning. We will take the Prince Henry Cliff Walk and watch Katoomba Falls cascading below. From here the views of the Ruin Castle, Jamison Valley and the edge of the Megalong Valley are amazing. We will be taking the railway down to bottom station where we can take a look up from the base of the cliff, to the Three Sisters towering above and ancient rainforest canopy at eye level – we may even be able to see Wentworth Falls to the east. We have plenty of time to explore, and we can take the 50-minute stroll along the Scenic Walkway through the Jurassic-like rainforest. There is so much to take in here that we will spend the entire day just exploring and enjoying before heading to our local hotel.

Day 5: Orange Area And Wineries
Orange, New South Wales, Australia
Learn More @ www.nibblesipstours.com

We are going to be heading farther inland today to explore the Orange area and their fantastic wineries. Our drive will be about 2 hours, and we arrive in plenty of time to be able to visit several wineries today, and perhaps even explore the historic town itself. The altitude, cool climate, soil structure and topography here are the unique point of difference which you will begin to recognize as we taste our way through the many wine varietals produced here.

There are five notable wineries in the area and we will spend the day visiting as many as we can (or want). Angullong is a one of the Orange region’s most awarded wineries. With a range of traditional and alternative varieties, this cool climate winegrower has repeatedly won acclaim with their wines.

Cook Family Estate is a boutique winery producing premium cool climate wines. Duncan Cook makes wines of distinction, complexity and elegance, exemplifying Orange terroir. Elevation is key, which is why the fruit is grown in vineyards of varying altitudes and soils. Their tasting room is right in town, so it will be convenient to find a fantastic lunch spot nearby.

Swinging Bridge finds its strength in producing fine and elegant wines from the premium grapes in the cool climate, high elevation wine region of Orange. Through the hard work and vision of winemaker Tom Ward and his wife Georgie, Swinging Bridge has evolved from its beginnings in 1995 to be a leading supplier of award-winning Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

The Cellar Door vista at Highland Heritage is expansive, overlooking the Summer Hill Creek Valley towards the original “Wellwood” homestead that was constructed in the early 1840s. The Highland Heritage Estate vineyard was once a part of the original “Wellwood” run.

Cumulus Wines embodies the spirit of Orange, Australia’s premier cool climate, high elevation wine region. Their goal, put simply, is the pursuit of happiness and they realise this by nurturing every step of the winemaking process from ‘bud to bottle’ and beyond.

After all these tastings we head off to the hotel to check in. If the group wants, before finding one of the fantastic restaurants in town for dinner, we can walk off our wine following the Orange Heritage Trail, a self-guided walk past more than 40 places of historical interest in town!

Day 6: Orange To Nowra: Blowhole, Beach, Waterfalls And More
Nowra, Victoria, Australia
Learn More @ www.nibblesipstours.com

We backtrack a little bit this morning as we head back towards the coast to start our explorations down to our destination of Melbourne. This is probably our longest drive day in the tour, but there are so many phenomenal views and things to see along the route that we can stop any time any one wants to! This is the best thing about being in private transport, as we can make our own schedule. There are certain places we consider special though, and so we have scheduled them into the drive.

The cliff-hugging Grand Pacific Drive takes us down to Stanwell Tops, where we can take in stunning coastal views from the cliff tops. We take a drive over the dramatic Sea Cliff Bridge into the city of Wollongong. Continuing on, we head to the famous Blowhole in Kiama. Watching the blowhole erupt is deeply satisfying and amazingly beautiful as it shoots up to 60 meters. The rumble of the ocean forcing its way into the narrow sea cavern can be felt as you stand waiting for the show.

From here we continue through the lush rolling hills to Gerringong and Gerroa, which sits perched on cliffs overlooking Seven Mile Beach. Our drive takes us alongside it to Shoalhaven Heads, a popular spot for swimming. We can stop, take a walk along the beach, or take a dip!

We are going to take a slight detour inland to the amazing Fitzroy Falls. They are located in Moreton National Park, and are accessed by an easy 100 meter boardwalk through bushland to the top of the falls. It is a nice break from the coastal scenery and a place where you can easily imagine pixies and woodland nymphs frolicking. Our drive back to the coast takes us through Kangaroo Valley, where we will find cute antique shops and markets.

If we have time, we will stop at Coolangatta Estate for a tasting of their award-winning wines, otherwise we will continue down to Nowra, which offers pretty antique shops and cafes and is where we will be spending the night.

Day 7: On The Route To Melbourne
Eden, Victoria, Australia
Learn More @ www.nibblesipstours.com

We enjoy a leisurely breakfast in the hotel this morning before heading off in a southernly direction, once again travelling along the coastline. Our first destination of the day is Narooma, where we can enjoy an early lunch before our activity.

Montague Island, off the coast of Narooma, is home to hundreds of friendly seals. We will head out to the island on a boat and watch them safely from deck – or you can even jump in and swim with them! Our boat tour leaves just after noon and takes about 2.5 hours in total. When we return to shore we will continue on to our next destination.

We will need to rejuvenate ourselves after our time on (or in) the water, so just 20 minutes down the road we stop to enjoy the offerings at the Tilba Winery. Here we can sample some of their wines and nourish ourselves with a matched cheese plate. Continuing on for about 10 minutes brings us to the little village of Tilba Tilba. Situated below the foothills, the village is steeped in history and has to be one of Australians loveliest. We stop to take a walk along the streets, and be surrounded by its history.

Another 20 minutes down the road takes us to the Blue Pool. Not only clean, beautiful and crystal clear, this amazing pool is also Jaws-proof. Perfect for an afternoon cool-down, the Blue Pool is a hit with locals just as much as with tourists.

Our final destination today is the town of Eden, where we can enjoy the hotel and area.

Day 8: On Route To Melbourne
Wilson's Promotory, Victoria, Australia
Learn More @ www.nibblesipstours.com

There is so much to see and so many beautiful areas along this route that is was extremely difficult for us to decide what to include! Today we head off in our vehicle to explore Gipsy Point and the enormous Croajingalong National Park, which stretches for more than 100 kilometres (60 miles) along the coast. UNESCO has declared the park a World Biosphere Reserve because of the natural diversity it has within it. It’s one of the most interesting natural locations in Australia but, for some reason, gets a limited number of tourists. The coastline is quite spectacular and we can access its beaches from quite a few places, so be prepared with your bathing suit. Hiking up to the top of Genoa Peak gives us fantastic views and is relatively easy, taking about 30 minutes from the carpark. Many of the bushwalks inland from the coast will get us up close with some Australian wildlife.

After we have had our fill of this amazing area we continue our drive to Bairnsdale, where we will stop for lunch. From here we head to the Sale Common Wetlands Walk, a boardwalk that extends over freshwater marshes and through red gum woodlands. We can see an enormous variety of birdlife here.

Our day continues with a drive down to our hotel in the Wilson’s Promontory area.

Day 9: On Route To Melbourne
Phillip Island, Victoria, Australia
Learn More @ www.nibblesipstours.com

This morning we drive a short distance to Wilson’s Promontory, or ‘The Prom’ as the locals call it, is the southernmost tip of mainland Australia and a stunningly beautiful place to visit. A coastal road trip between Sydney and Melbourne wouldn’t be complete without witnessing what was once considered the edge of the earth. The lookout at Promontory Light Station offers views out across the wild Bass Strait. One of the areas that we will enjoy here is Squeaky Beach, which is renowned for its turquoise waters and fine, quartz sand that makes a squeaking sound underfoot.

After our fill of beach and nature, we head up to Phillip Island where we will be experiencing some unique activities. If we have enough time this afternoon, we will be visiting the Koala Conservation Centre. We will check into our hotel in the area, have dinner, and then head off to experience the Penguin Parade. Penguins arrive at sunset every night of the year and we will be there to view them tonight!

Day 10: Mornington Area Wineries And Farms And On To Melbourne
Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Learn More @ www.nibblesipstours.com

There are so many vineyards and farm gates to choose from in this area that it is impossible to include all the best ones, but we are to give it a try today as we travel the last bit up to Melbourne. About an hour up the road we start our day at Crittenden Estate, which is a family owned and operated boutique winery, crafting an exciting range of award-winning wines. They’re amongst the oldest wineries on the Mornington Peninsula. The wine tasting here is experimental, educational and engaging. Personalized tasting notes accompany your wine flight so you can try, taste and discover at your own pace.

Our next stop along this wine trail will be at Pt. Leo Estate. The vineyard is planted with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Shiraz – varieties which have established a firm following in the Peninsula. The winemaking at Pt. Leo Estate has had a deliberate, careful evolution with a view to produce fruit of exceptional quality.

Time to have lunch! Another winery and another opportunity to taste some phenomenal wines along with a yummy lunch at the smallest vineyard, Polperro. Polperro is a premium, single vineyard label, while Even Keel celebrates the individual strengths of Australia’s wine regions with a small production of elegant and balanced wines grown in regions best suited to specific varieties.

Down the road we find Ocean Eight. When defining what identifies the Ocean Eight wines, Mike Aylward always returns to two ideas he has worked on since the first release wine; how well are they going to match with food and will they best represent the climate and grape growing conditions of the Mornington Peninsula.

We end our time in the area with a visit to Sunny Ridge Strawberry Farms. Here we can pick some strawberries for ourselves, eat some homemade ice cream or a snack, or perhaps buy some jam or candy to take home with you. It is a nice way to end our day in the area. From here we are going to travel a short hour and a bit to end up in the city of Melbourne where we will spend the next two nights. Join your tour leader for a fantastic dinner in the city if you like, or spend some time on your own exploring.

Day 11: Melbourne Food Tour
Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Learn More @ www.nibblesipstours.com

This morning we depart at approximately 9 am. Our local guide will pick us up from the hotel to help us discover Melbourne in a different way – through food. Today our experiences will be shaped by chefs, food critics, and connoisseurs, with unmatched knowledge of the talents, trends and tastes of this vibrant city’s food scene. We start by soaking up the world-famous atmosphere of the Queen Victoria Market with coffee and tastings from the very best outlets. Then on to visit the Italian neighborhood of Carlton and indulge in a hosted tasting of specialty foods including parmigiano, reggiano and prosciutto, along with a glass of sparkling prosecco.

In the city centre we get an expert’s insight into the latest and greatest restaurants hidden among Melbourne’s laneways. Here we will explore Flinders Lane, taste farmhouse cheese in an underground maturing room, artisan gelato and the very best handmade chocolates. We spend time in the Chinese and Greek precincts and learn about the hidden cocktail bar scene that Melburnians so love. We will conclude the day in the best way possible with a selection of dishes and wine at the award-winning Cumulus Inc restaurant. Our adventures on this exclusive experience will help you understand the city, its people, and its best-kept foodie secrets.

You have the evening free to enjoy the city.

Day 12: Melbourne Free Day / Melbourne To Perth
Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Learn More @ www.nibblesipstours.com

Today you can have a sleep in and the day to explore the city on your own. There are plenty of things to see and do, just ask your tour leader for some suggestions. Or, if you like, join your tour leader for a day of winery visits to the Yarra Valley at no extra expense to you.

We will be departing for the airport at approximately 4:30 pm to catch an evening flight to our next destination of Perth. There is a time difference between the cities, so even though we have a four-hour flight, we arrive into Perth at approximately 8:00 pm and are transferred to the hotel for a good night’s rest.

Day 13: Down To Margaret River, Exploring The Ocean Life
Margaret River, Western Australia, Australia
Learn More @ www.nibblesipstours.com

We depart this morning with our private transportation to travel south towards Margaret River, which is our ultimate destination today. There are plenty of places to stop along the way though, and our first exciting activity today is in Bunbury, just a couple of hours down the road. The Dolphin Discovery Center has just had a major upgrade, and it is an excellent place for us to learn more about these amazing creatures. The Interpretive Centre showcases an expanded range of themed fish and coral aquariums and an amazing 360-degree Digital Dolphinarium, as well as interpretation of the Koombana Bay environment and its history – geological, indigenous, marine and contemporary. It is an immersive experience, with activity centres, interactive displays, feeding programs and tours that appeal to all age groups. The aquariums tell the story of the region from freshwater river to offshore reef and feature the marine plants and animals of the temperate zone. The centre provides a unique experience that uses embedded technology along with natural displays. We have time to explore and enjoy the center, and have an early lunch if you like, before departing on a one-and-a-half-hour cruise to see some dolphins up close! The team will introduce us to the local Bottlenose Dolphins as they interact in their natural environment. Many of the Dolphins seen on the cruise call Koombana Bay their home. They can be seen frolicking, playing, sleeping and feeding during the cruise. The informative commentary from the skipper of the boat will also keep us entertained.

We travel another 40 minutes down the road to Busselton for another marine life experience. Extending 1.8 kilometers over the protected waters of Geographe Bay, the heritage listed Busselton Jetty is the longest timber-piled jetty in the Southern Hemisphere and the second longest in the world. On arrival, we will board the jetty train and travel 15 minutes across the ocean to reach the underwater observatory, located at the far end of the jetty. Here we will explore with a guide and descend 8 meters to the ocean floor via a spiral staircase of 60 stairs to marvel at wondrous sea creatures and beautiful expanses of labyrinthine coral sprawling into the deep. The tour will take about 40 minutes in total and we return to our transport by train.

Another 40 minutes of driving will take us to our final destination today.

Day 14: Margaret River Wineries
Margaret River, Western Australia, Australia
Learn More @ www.nibblesipstours.com

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast in the hotel this morning before we are picked up at 10 am to start our full day of wine tastings in this beautiful area. The Margaret River region is one of Australia’s premiere wine regions. We will be visiting five different vineyards to have Cellar Door experiences, and we will enjoy lunch along the way. We also have the opportunity to visit and taste samples at an olive oil, cheese and chocolate factory. Our day ends at about 5 pm and we can enjoy the evening in the area. You can easily spend a couple of hours strolling the lively main street of Margaret River town, crammed with gourmet food shops, art and craft galleries and chic boutiques. Its gastronomic eateries and lively cafés and wine bars are a saviour in the evenings when the winery restaurants are closed.

Day 15: Return To Perth, Fly To Brisbane And Transfer To The Gold Coast
Perth, Western Australia, Australia
Learn More @ www.nibblesipstours.com

Today we head back to the airport in Perth to catch a flight to the complete opposite side of the country! Our flight departs just after noon, so we can have an early lunch in the airport before flying out. The time change to Brisbane is 2 hours ahead, so we arrive in early evening and are transferred from the city of Brisbane itself to our hotel on the Gold Coast.

Day 16: Wine Tastings In The Mount Tamborine Area
Mount Tamborine, Queensland, Australia
Learn More @ www.nibblesipstours.com

Today we experience award-winning liqueurs, spirits and wine on a tour of the Mt. Tamborine area, along with locally produced cheese. Today we will visit the Witches Falls Winery, Heritage Estate, Tamborine Mountain Distillery, Witches Chase Cheese Factory, and Fortitude Brewing Co. We will enjoy a two-course meal for lunch, and with amazing views everywhere there is definitely no better way to spend our first day in the area.

Day 17: Gold Coast Cruising And Snorkeling
Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia
Learn More @ www.nibblesipstours.com

This morning we depart for an exciting experience on the water. We board a spacious 50-foot (15-meter) catamaran to cruise to Moreton Island and snack on morning tea served onboard. When we arrive at the island, we stop at Tangalooma Wrecks (depending on the conditions) for our 1-hour snorkeling tour. In the 1960s, Tangalooma Wrecks was formed from ships that were scuttled to create a breakwater, which was then colonized by colorful corals and sea creatures and an excellent snorkeling site. In the afternoon, we look for bottlenose dolphins, loggerhead turtles, and the rare and endangered dugong during the wildlife discovery cruise. Sightings of these wild animals are likely, but not guaranteed. We can also get great photo ops of the fish that circle your boat during a fish feeding demonstration. Our lunch features a buffet that includes fresh seafood and chicken. Afterward, we have free time to relax on the beach or walk on the sand dunes. At the end of an amazing 7-hour tour, our boat returns to the mainland and we return to our hotel.

Day 18: Gold Coast Free Day Or Optional Tour To Springbrook National Park
Springbrook National Park, Queensland, Australia
Learn More @ www.nibblesipstours.com

Enjoy a day of relaxation, beaches or personal activities here on the Gold Coast, or choose to join your tour leader on a tour to Springbrook National Park on a guided rainforest bushwalk. We can see a true miracle of nature at the Natural Arch, experience a Glow worm cave tour, discover and explore the Cedar Creek rock pools, take a walk to beautiful Curtis Falls, and get up close with some Australian wildlife such as friendly rosellas, King Parrots, bowerbirds and kangaroos. We will stop for a yummy picnic lunch at a beautiful location and relax mountain style.

Day 19: Free Morning, Flight From Brisbane To Sydney
Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Learn More @ www.nibblesipstours.com

You can enjoy a free morning in the hotel or the area before we transfer to the airport for our short flight back to Sydney. Our flight departs mid-afternoon and we arrive in plenty of time to transfer to the hotel and enjoy an evening in the city.

Day 20: Sydney Free Day And Dinner Cruise
Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

There are plenty of things to keep you busy today on your free day in Sydney. If you would like to have a list of the many places available to visit, or suggested shopping or beach areas, please let us know, we would be happy to provide that for you.

Tonight, we will have our last dinner together as a group. We have a special experience to end our time together as we dance to classic hits and relive the ‘good old days’ on-board a Retro Cruise! During dinner we can admire glittering views of Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House, while DJs spin tunes from the 70's, 80's and 90's. Along the way, we tuck into a delicious buffet dinner, sip cocktails from the bar and enjoy on-board entertainment, including great prizes and giveaways. This will be a fun way to end our tour!
