Convicts, Castles and Champagne - Sydney Harbour Lunch Cruise and Goat Island Tour

This was a really fun excursion to end our holiday and the stories told on the tour were fascinating. . the tour providers made it very fun. It was great to visit Goat Island and have views on the city from another direction, plus it feels very secluded so quite special when you are there having your lunch. ...Samantha & Steve F., Qatar – See more reviews

Description

The three most captivating prisoner stories of the world - Alcatraz, the Tower of London, and Convict Sydney. The Convicts, Castle and Champagne lunch tour is a unique and personal guided harbour tour that gives you the chance to get up close and personal with Sydney's colorful convict history.

We head towards Goat Island, where we will walk in the footsteps of Australia's early convicts. During the tour, your guide will engage you with tales of punishment, deaths and escape while visiting the country's most important and intact convict-buildings, an 1800s military gun powder magazine, the soldier's barracks complex and Sydney's oldest Water Police Station.

We'll be cruising past some of the wealthiest and most prestigious suburbs in Australia and take in the harbour side castles. Here, you'll be able to see the most expensive property in the county as well as learn about the history of the beautiful Kirribilli House and Admiralty House.

You can sit back, relax and have a chilled glass of bubbly during the cruise or while in the island.
