Finish your trip to the Blue Mountains in style with a river cruise that takes you from Homebush Bay to Circular Quay in Sydney. While you glide along the sparkling waters, you can marvel at the natural beauty of the region from a different perspective, and learn more about the history and unique stories of the region via a live commentary.
As you go, look out for picturesque waterside suburbs and iconic Sydney attractions, like the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House.
Why Take a River Cruise
The traffic during rush hour in Sydney’s centre is busy and filled with commuters looking to get quickly from one place to the next – not a relaxing way to explore some of the city’s best offerings.
Instead, you can hop aboard a cruise and take a peaceful trip from the Blue Mountains back into the heart of Sydney. It means you get to avoid the crowds and finish your Blue Mountains adventure in style.
The cruise takes you directly from Homebush Bay in the Blue Mountains to Circular Quay in Sydney’s lively harbour, giving you the chance to disembark in the heart of what’s happening. But that’s not all. You get to experience some of the city’s best-loved attractions as you go, soaking up unique architecture and historical offerings as you travel from bay to harbour.
This is definitely the best way to avoid the busy city traffic and venture back from the Blue Mountains. The Parramatta River is flanked by incredible sights, from plush suburban plots to forests and rugged coastline. Keep your eyes peeled for the town of Parramatta itself, which is a hub of culture with plenty of restaurants, art galleries, and theatres to keep its residents and visitors busy.
Don’t forget to pack your camera, either. Along the route, there’ll be plenty of opportunity for you to grab some snapshots of the river and its surrounds, as well as pick up a snack and a refreshing drink from the licensed bar on-board. And, to top it off, you can recline on the fully retractable roof for incredible views of the sights and surroundings.
