Sydney Showboats Dinner Cruise Experience

A dinner cruise on Sydney Harbour is simply breathtaking and often considered the ultimate dining experience – one that is unparalleled! When it comes to cruising on Sydney Harbour, no dinner cruise compares with Sydney Showboats, which has been an iconic attraction since 1987.

Here’s a little bit of history… The Sydney Showboats are authentic air-conditioned paddlewheelers, reminiscent of those that plied the Sydney Harbour waters during the 1800s. Paddlewheelers were the backbone of the romantic era of commerce and nation building in Australia that lasted almost a century. Kalang, a former vehicular ferry, made redundant by the opening of the Sydney Harbour Bridge in 1932, was the original Showboat. The vessel was rebuilt as a Showboat to cruise Sydney Harbour by day and night until 1972.

Come aboard our nightly Sydney Showboat Dinner Cruise and experience a restaurant-quality dinner cruise combined with the glitz and glamour of a world-class cabaret show of exceptional Australian talent. You will be mesmerised by Sydney’s icons such as the Harbour Bridge and Opera House, backlit by the lights of the sky scrapers of Sydney, one of the world’s most beautiful harbour cities.

Since 1987, over 5 million happy guests have enjoyed a Sydney Harbour dinner cruise experience and show on board our fleet of Sydney Showboats.

Our daily dinner cruise operates from King Street Wharf 5 between 7:00pm and 10:00pm. The spectacular 3-hour Sydney Harbour dinner cruise and show is an unforgettable experience that has put a smile on every guest’s face at the end of the night.

Cruise on the stunning Sydney Harbour while enjoying a 3-course seated and served dinner followed by our famous cabaret show – ‘Voyage of Love’. This spectacular internationally recognised show features Australia’s most talented performers and continues to exceed guest expectations. Our experienced and dedicated crew will impress you with courteous service as we take pride in our long-standing tradition and reputation.

If you’re looking to celebrate a special occasion, be it your birthday, an anniversary or a Christmas party with colleagues, Sydney Showboats offers party packages to make your special occasion even more memorable. Our large purpose-built fleet of fully air-conditioned vessels with stage and full audio visual suite are also ideal for private charters to host large events for business, conference or weddings on Sydney Harbour.

The theatre-style layout of the Showboats, with a mezzanine level provides you with the space and flexibility to conduct a seamless event on Sydney Harbour, whatever the occasion! Sydney Showboats is also famous for harbour event cruises – much sought after world famous New Year’s Eve Fireworks cruise, Australia Day lunch and dinner cruises, cruises during Vivid Sydney Light Festival, the Sydney to Hobart Boxing Day Yacht Race and our very renowned Christmas Day buffet lunch cruise.

Our team is dedicated to upholding the highest standards of passenger safety and comfort. We comply with the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) regulations with both the Showboats undergoing periodic maintenance.

In a recent interview with Australian Maritime Safety Authority, Andrew Stirzaker, CEO, Australian Cruise Group, discussed and reinforced the safety measures adopted by the company as well as the adoption of regulatory changes to achieve world class cruising on Sydney Harbour.
