Celebrate Australia Day on board the Blue Room, with an exclusive glass boat lunch cruise experience that gives you ringside seats to all the exciting Sydney Harbour events.

This Australia Day cruise is offered to a limited number of 160 guests, despite the vessel having a licensed capacity of 430 guests. We do not entertain large tour groups and guests below the age of 18 (including infants) to maintain the decorum and exclusivity of the cruise.

Our restaurant-quality dining experience ensures efficient service and maximum comfort to all our cruising guests. Enjoy canapés and drinks on the Sky Deck as you cruise alongside the colourful Australia Day Ferrython and watch the spectacular RAAF fly over and other exciting harbour events. A three-course seated & served lunch awaits you in the air-conditioned all-glass dining saloon where every seat feels like a window seat!

This is the perfect cruise to get into the spirit of being a true Australian as you feel like you're in the thick of all the harbour action – don’t let this opportunity pass you by!

Guest Reviews
  • We had American friends with us to share the day - just wonderful ! Can't fault a thing. The food was exceptional, also the quality of the champagne & drink. In fact I'm booking for next year for 4 & the same table please ! Just a query - speaking to your office & was told we were paying $144.00 p.p. I had an email re this but think it was handed in with the yellow ticket on arrival (they were attached together.) Thankyou for a very memorable day - we were proud Aussies! Regards Jan Kenneally

  • we really enjoyed this cruise. It was pleasant and uncrowded. Nice food. The view of the harbour was fantastic. My overseas guests thought it was a big success. We would definitely consider it again when we have guests from overseas. My only complaint was that I was misdirected to the wrong boat and queue by your box office! However, I did work this out in due course although boarding had already commenced. Secondly another couple were sitting at our table! I knew it was our table (for 4) because I had seen the staff seating information. Consequently the other couple were very annoyed (with us!) when they had to move. Perhaps it would be a good idea for staff in charge of seating to double check names of guests to avoid any confusion. thank you, Catherine

  • Great day out thanks very much
    Ernest
  • We had a great time, everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. My only recommendation would be to have a staff member advise what was happening on the harbour at particular times ie Ferry Race, Fly Over etc etc. Thank you so much it was a really enjoyable cruise and one we will certainly look at booking again.

  • Australia Day on your boat was the best experience on the harbour since the 1988 Bicentenary. Many times I have considered doing a harbour tour on Australia Day but have never failed to commit. This year I had cousins visiting from Italy for the first time in their life and it seemed like the right thing to do. Given the wide range of choices I am so glad I chose the Glass Boat for them and for my own expsrience. Everything about the day was perfect. The limited the number of people, no children resulted in a good group of similar minded people all enjoying a great day. We will definitely come again, this year I had 6 peole next year I am planning two tables of 8 as I cannot stop telling my friends and other family members what a great experience the day was. Thanks to All the crew
