Floating out and relaxing in front of the glorious Sydney Harbour is pretty fantastic. Whether you’re planning a wedding, formal, special event, corporate training day, meeting or Christmas party, the water is definitely the place to do it!
You can even hop aboard for New Year’s Eve or Australia Day Sydney Harbour cruises, it’s a year-round events venue! As if glittering waters, fresh air, and beautiful architecture aren’t enough, there are a few ways that you can make your next event out on the water as amazing as humanly possible.
Organize your path
Think about where you want to go and what you want to see! Most commercial ferries or cruises on the Sydney Harbour don’t have permission to stray into the open water, so keep this in mind! You won’t be venturing too far! Determine the most convenient pick-up and drop off spot for all of your attendees.
If this is a corporate day, this should be close to your office. Maybe you’re organizing a wedding or a party? If so, take a poll and determine which point will be the easiest for everyone attending. This will start the event off on the right foot and means that the journey home won’t be too strenuous!

This can include delicious canapes, a buffet, bar service, music, DJ or other entertainment. All of these gestures will make your event majorly memorable. Talk to companies that you’re interested in, sometimes the website just doesn’t have all the answers!

Pick the right time of day
To get the most out of your landmark marveling, you should try and be strategic about when you’re holding your event. Of course, if this is a workplace affair this gets a little more difficult, but if you’re on the water purely for pleasure, you have a little more say.
