Australia Day Magistic Fireworks Dinner Cruise & Drinks

Add a hint of luxury to your Australia Day celebrations with a Magistic dinner cruise on Sydney Harbour. Sit back and relax after a day spent enjoying the lively but hectic Australia Day harbour events.

Once on board, you’ll be ushered to your well-arranged individual reserved tables in an air-conditioned dining saloon with panoramic windows to enjoy spectacular views of the harbour.

Relish on a delicious buffet prepared from local produce and enjoy night views of the stunning harbour and its attractions while sipping on a glass of your preferred beverage. You can also purchase beverages of your choice from the fully licensed bar on board.

Popular among both visitors and Sydneysiders alike, this dinner cruise is the best alternative to waterfront dining, away from the crowds.
