Guest Review

The Cruise was chosen for our group of 11 as when booked on P&O Cruise from Brisbane we thought (as most of passengers) that we would be on the harbour. When found out we would be at Whites Bay Wharf we looked for something else. We had 6 intellectually disabled adults and they thoroughly enjoyed the day. Looking at doing same next year. Tank you for a wonderful day.

This is my third time on this boat, and I will definitely be back again. Thank you.

My friends & I have thoroughly enjoyed this cruise for the past 2 Australia Days. We couldn’t fault anything. We just love The Showboat , the team are so friendly courteous and helpful and it is definitely value for money. Well done Australian Cruise Group.

Thank you for a wonderful experience and a great Australian day. Regards Inta

Fantastic celebrating Australia Day on the showboat with my family.

Sydney Showboat Australia Day Lunch Cruise

Experience unobstructed views of the events of the harbour including the Ferrython, Tall Ships race, aerial displays and flyovers, from the vessel’s expansive outer decks. The Sydney Showboat has large wrap-around balconies and expansive outer decks that give you unobstructed views of the harbour that is bustling with events that inspire national pride on Australia Day. Watch four Sydney ferries battle it out in the bright and colourful Ferrython as they race from Fort Denison to the Harbour Bridge.

You can also treat your eyes to the Australia Day Sailing Regatta as it cascades down the glistening harbour waters. Yachts, boats, cranes, tall ships, barges, ferries and tour boats participate in the parade all dressed up and decorated in national colours and flags – and up for grabs is the title of ‘Best Dressed Vessel’.

At noon, the Armed Forces pay their tribute to the Federation with a 21 Gun Salute that is followed by synchronised choirs singing the national anthem. Later, the Australian Army, Royal Australian Navy and Royal Australian Air Force regale Sydney with a ceremonial display that commemorates the making of a great nation.

Indulge in a freshly prepared buffet lunch alongside a selection of wine and soft drinks for the cruise duration. So, join the rest of the community down at the harbour and celebrate the spirit of being a true Australian! Ignite your patriotic spirit on 26 January with a 3.45-hour Australia Day buffet lunch cruise aboard the Sydney Showboat. Get transported to a world of yesteryear glamour, reliving the glory of authentic paddlewheelers that cruised the Sydney Harbour hundreds of years ago. This Australia Day, join us down at the harbour and celebrate the spirit of being an Australian!
