4 Night Cruise sailing from Sydney roundtrip aboard True North.

Sydney Harbour is an epicentre of excitement during the festive season and being outrageously spoilt on-board the True North is the penultimate option to experience all! After spending the ‘big day’ with family and friends – it’s time for some more intimate indulging! Slip away for a sumptuous Christmas dinner on one of the most beautiful harbours in the world! Then take the ‘best seat in the harbour’ for the start of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race – one of Australia’s most spectacular sporting events! And then spend the next 3 days soaking-up the tranquillity of the Hawkesbury – wilderness on the doorstep of Australia’s largest city! No need to call a taxi – you don’t even need a reservation for dinner! A truly very different way to experience Sydney!

NOTE: This itinerary is provided as example only – prevailing conditions and local arrangements may cause variation.

Night One
Welcome aboard the TRUE NORTH in magnificent Sydney Harbour. Christmas dinner will be served as the TRUE NORTH reveals one of the finest harbours in the world!

Day One
Start the day with something special – a visit to the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia on starting day! See and experience the pre-race tension as the contenders prepare for one the world’s most famous yacht races! Enjoy a champagne breakfast on the bow and watch the start of the Sydney to Hobart from one of the most enviable platforms in the harbour. Then visit famed Taronga Zoo or the ubiquitous Opera House before we enjoy a leisurely afternoon wander ‘past the heads’ and along Sydney’s revered northern beaches to picturesque Pittwater – more opportunity to dine in style!

Day Two
Enjoy breakfast in the beautiful surrounds of Pittwater. Morning activities will include a walk to the Barrenjoey Lighthouse, perhaps a little beachcombing and, a scenic voyage past the Pittwater yacht clubs before the TRUE NORTH enters the tranquil waters of the Hawkesbury River. There may also be a chance to walk from Longnose Point to Flint and Steel Bay through the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park – Australia’s second oldest national park.

A helicopter flight to the Hunter Valley and a wine tasting at our feature winery is sure to be a highlight!

Day Three
Wake up to the shrill of the Jerusalem Bay cicadas and then join our local guide as we explore beautiful Cowen Creek. Stand in the very spot the Constitution of Australia was written and see the rock art of those who came before! Enjoy a refreshing swim at one of the Creek’s many sheltered beaches and rinse-off under a waterfall!
Whilst you are enjoying lunch, the TRUE NORTH will make its way to Middle Harbour before slipping through the narrow channel at Split Bridge and into delightful Bantry Bay. As the sun starts to set over mangrove lined waters, join an infamous TRUE NORTH ‘raft-up’ and then it’s back on-board for another highlight – dance the night away with our live band!

Day Four
The TRUE NORTH will return to Sydney Harbour for an early morning disembarkation.
