Boxing Day Lunch Cruise Reviews

  • We have cruised on the Boxing Day showboat cruise for the last 4-5 years and have enjoyed it every year and this year was no exception . We would definitely recommend this cruise . Food , drinks and service was excellent and we had such a relaxing and fun day. Many thanks showboat. See you next year.

  • We really enjoyed the cruise (Sydney to Hobart race) We didn't feel squeezed in, all in all we really enjoyed ourselves and would book again for next year.

  • What an awesome day on the Harbour from when we first got onboard till our exit. Thank you for making our day.

  • We all loved our lunch cruise, the food and drink were excellent and most importantly there was lots of space and not too crowded so queuing was very quick and lots of places to view

  • We were first time travellers and enjoyed the experience yesterday, thanks


Boxing Day Lunch Cruise Experience

Experience the Boxing Day yacht race from the best spot on the harbour onboard the all-inclusive Sydney Showboat Boxing Day lunch cruise. Don’t miss out on the Boxing Day activities on the harbour and enjoy roving views to all of it with Sydney Showboats. Catch the eventful start of the annual Sydney-Hobart Yacht Race where international racing yachts compete against the Australian yachts as they commence their journey that covers over 630 nautical miles from Sydney to Hobart- only on this all-inclusive Boxing Day lunch cruise. During this annual Boxing Day event international racing yachts compete against the Australian yachts at Rose Bay.

The race flags off at 1 pm with a cannon blast across the harbour. Enjoy great views of the harbour and events from our wrap-around verandas, and indulge in a buffet lunch with a selection of beer, wine & soft drinks for the duration of the cruise.

The inaugural race was held in 1945, later transformed into one of the world's greatest open ocean yacht races. Covering over 630 nautical miles from Sydney to Hobart, the race also goes past the risky Bass Strait.

So, witness the start of the race from Sydney Harbour on Boxing Day onboard a luxury cruise! There’s no better way to experience Boxing Day than aboard this cruise!
