Showboat History

Revolutionising the concept of waterfront dining on Sydney Harbour since 1987, Sydney Showboats has fashioned a league of its own in the cruising industry. Learn how the visionary Brian Gray took a giant leap into the future by rekindling the romance of the 1800s with this paddlewheeler dining venue. Since 1987, the Sydney Showboat dinner cruise has successfully delivered unforgettable experiences to over 7 million guests.

Showboat Paddlewheelers

Now Sydneysiders’ and visitors alike, can rekindle the romantic era of cruising on an authentic paddlewheeler. Why not take a trip down memory lane and express the thrill of the old paddlewheelers aboard the Sydney Showboat?

Experience a touch of nostalgia… paddlewheelers were the backbone of a romantic era of commerce and nation building in Australia which lasted nearly a century. It was in the late 1880s when Sydneysider’s last saw paddlewheel vessels plying on our harbour.

Waltraud

We had a wonderful experience. It was truly a memorable night. Thankyou to all the staff with the outstanding service and entertainment carried out.

Joey

The Showboat was more than I thought it would be. Wonderful to see lights of Sydney. We should do this once a year. I would book another cruise.

John

Very happy with everything thank you

Laura

That was an amazing experience. Thanks.

Kajal

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and understand that due to COVID restrictions you may be limited economically as to how many staff you are able to have. We had to ask several times for drink service and feel it would be more beneficial for all to address this. All in all a wonderful experience.

Brett

Thank you for an amazing time. Great experience and amazing staff.

Marija-Mary

Our waiter was very accommodating.

Lynette

Only one negative, the shared dessert. I Think it should have been served individually. Apart from that, it was amazing so glad we chose this for our 33rd wedding anniversary.

Roberta

Best show boat experience, singer lady jezzz got our goosebumps so entertaining and energetic. I look forward to seeing you guys soon. Thank you for your hospitality!!

Prabha

We all had a fantastic night on the Showboat, the whole experience was memorable and well worth the wait. Originally we had booked for my actual 60th Birthday-28th March 2020. Covid put an end to this date, you had glacially given us a refund. We had also booked accommodation at The Star which we had to give a future date for, that is why we chose to come last weekend, we finally completed the whole weekend as it was originally intended to be. Thank you again for wonderful memories great service.

Karenne

Found this cruise on a darling harbour website. Drinks package was a great addition. Food quality excellent. Fantastic staff, particularly the elder gentleman who was the COVID officer - he addressed us by name (a nice touch!) and was very attentive, and he took some great photos for us. No complaints. Will do this again if we ever find ourselves with a spare night in Sydney (we are from interstate).

Stirling

Entertainment was fantastic.
