Description

Each year, the world's most beautiful harbour turns it on for Australia Day. Join us onboard an authentic tall ship that was part of the official 1988 Bi-Centennial Re-enactment to celebrate everything that's great about Australia.

On Australia Day, vessels of all shapes and sizes decorated with color and flags create a wonderful buzz on the harbor.

For the second year, we are holding an evening race between two authentic tall ships. The mighty Southern Swan will be taking on the Soren Larsen and you have the opportunity to get involved and help the crew sail your ship to victory. The competition for the big silver trophy and bragging rights will be fierce.

Master vs. Master. Crew vs. Crew. Ship vs. Ship! This will be a battle of extraordinary skill and cunning. An epic race where the winner takes all.

During the cruise entertainment will be provided by live musicians creating a delightful atmosphere on board the ship.

And as an extra treat, our tall ships have been granted special access inside Cockle Bay and will be at the heart of the Darling Harbour Fireworks Spectacular.
