Destination NSW

As one of the great harbour cities of the world, Sydney is Australia’s premier cruise ship destination, hosting two iconic beacons for visitors, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House.

With the city offering the best in art, culture, food, shopping, and vibrant events, there are countless shore excursion options to suit all tastes and budgets.

Sydney also offers travellers an abundance of pre and post-cruise options, including visits to scenic regional locations such as the Blue Mountains, Hunter Valley and Port Stephens.

Sydney is also the gateway to cruising NSW and feeds sister ports, Eden and Newcastle. All three have different features and attractions which complement each other and appeal to differing segments of the cruise market.

Destination NSW works closely with a range of partners across New South Wales to support the development of cruise itineraries and new experiences.

We also partner with the Ports of Sydney, Newcastle and Eden to promote the State as a premier cruise destination.
