     Harbour Days Sailing Experience

Home
Meet your yacht at 10.00am at the Aquarium Pontoon at the Aquarium Wharf Darling Harbour and the tour begins. Cruising up Darling Harbour you'll turn towards the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge, which was completed in 1932 and is the largest steel arch bridge in the world. The Opera House offers the perfect place to take some photographs with such a famous landmark as the backdrop. Continuing the adventure you'll dodge the ferries leaving and entering Circular Quay and see the Rocks, birthplace of British settlement where convict labour constructions are easily visible. You'll pass Farm Cove and Mrs. Macquaries

Chair on the right and Fort Denison on the left, originally an area for newly-arrived prisoners where they were left with only bread and water to survive on.

Turning towards Rushcutter's Bay, hoist the sails and turn the engine off. Sail past the traditionally wealthy suburbs of Sydney, viewing the spectacular private homes at Darling Point, Point Piper and Vaucluse and the national parks of Clarke and Shark Islands. You'll continue on past Watson's Bay and the famous beachside restaurant Doyles, operated by the same family for over 100 years.

You have now been sailing for approximately two hours and everyone is looking forward to lunch and the opportunity to cast a fishing line or have a swim. Cross the Harbour entrance to Spring Cove on North Head. This lovely quiet beach is surrounded by natural bushland, the peaceful atmosphere enhanced by the sound of a small waterfall cascading over rocks or the laughter of a Kookaburra in the trees.

While lunch is prepared, toss a fishing line over the side. Bream and Flathead can occasionally be caught so make sure the cameras are handy to record the event. In the cockpit you'll settle down to enjoy a delicious lunch of prawns, sushi, chicken, ham, salad, pasta and bread. With a glass of Australian wine or beer relaxation takes over and a desert of fruit and cheese makes it almost impossible to leave. In the early afternoon you'll head for home under sail, soaking up the sun and fresh air.
