When is the best time to cruise Sydney?

Cruises from Sydney are a fantastic opportunity to take all year round, this is mainly due to the City enjoying around 300 days of sunshine per year. Sydney is well proofed for this weather and air conditioning is abundant in all tourist hot spots, not to mention the majority of public transport. Bottled water and strong sun creams are definitely recommended for all visitors during these luxurious summer months!

February sees the highest peak for Sydney cruises and 2014 met The Harbour City with 39 cruise stop offs. This was a record number and a figure that has almost doubled from previous years and 2015 is even set to exceed that! Sydney really is Australia’s cruise gateway and one of the most beautiful ports of call a cruiser can make, grab yourself a bargain and compare deals for Sydney cruises today!
