Boxing Day Showboat Lunch Cruise

Group Discount
 
The Sydney Showboat offers a special Boxing Day lunch cruise to catch the start of the Sydney-Hobart Yacht Race. On Boxing Day, an impressive fleet of international racing yachts will line up to compete against the Australian yachts at Rose Bay.

The race commences at 1pm with a cannon blast across the Harbour. Catch all the action onboard one of our authentic paddlewheelers with wrap-around verandahs and cathedral windows. You will enjoy a buffet lunch with beverage service for the duration of the cruise.

The Sydney-Hobart Yacht Race, which was first held in 1945, is one of the world's greatest open ocean yacht races. The race covers 630 nautical miles from Sydney to Hobart, including crossing the treacherous Bass Strait.

So, be there when the race flags off from Sydney Harbour on Boxing Day!
