    4 Night Cruise sailing from Sydney roundtrip aboard True North.

    Sydney Harbour is an epicentre of excitement during the festive season and being outrageously spoilt on-board the True North is the penultimate option to experience all! After spending the ‘big day’ with family and friends – it’s time for some more intimate indulging! Slip away for a sumptuous Christmas dinner on one of the most beautiful harbours in the world! Then take the ‘best seat in the harbour’ for the start of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race – one of Australia’s most spectacular sporting events!

    Or start the New Year with a bang as we park the True North ‘bridge-side’ for one of the world’s most spectacular fireworks displays. And then spend the next 3 days soaking-up the tranquillity of the Hawkesbury – wilderness on the doorstep of Australia’s largest city!

    No need to call a taxi – you don’t even need a reservation for dinner!

    A truly very different way to spend this joyous time of year.

    NOTE: This itinerary is provided as example only – prevailing conditions and local arrangements may cause variation.

    Night One

    Welcome aboard the magnificent TRUE NORTH in magnificent Sydney Harbour. Christmas dinner will be served as the TRUE NORTH cruises one of the finest harbours in the world!

    Day One

    Start the day with something special – a visit to the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia on starting day! See and experience the pre-race tension as the contenders prepare for one the world’s famous yacht races! Enjoy a champagne breakfast on the bow and watch the start of the Sydney to Hobart from one of the most enviable platforms in the harbour. Then visit famed Taronga Zoo or the ubiquitous Opera House before we enjoy a leisurely afternoon cruise ‘past the heads’ and along Sydney’s revered northern beaches to picturesque Pittwater – more opportunity to dine in style!

    Day Two

    Enjoy breakfast in the beautiful surrounds of Pittwater. Morning activities will include a walk to the Barrenjoey Lighthouse, beach combing and a scenic cruise past the Pittwater Yacht clubs. There may also be a chance to walk from Longnose Point to Flint and Steel Bay through the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park – Australia’s second oldest national park.

    A helicopter flight to the Hunter Valley and wine tasting at our feature winery is sure to be a cruise highlight! Whilst you are enjoying lunch the TRUE NORTH will cruise to Maitland Bay. Enjoy a swim or a bush walk through the surrounding national park. Sunset drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be served on the beach before an evening cruise to Jerusalem Bay.

    For the disciples, an afternoon round of golf might also be possible.

    Day Three

    Wake up to the shrill of the Jerusalem Bay cicadas. Join the crew for a bush walk along the Jerusalem Bay Bush Trail or head out in the tenders for sight seeing and swimming. Then savour a lunch on the sparkling waters of Cowan Creek, or get an aerial perspective of this stunning region from our luxury helicopter!

    In the afternoon the TRUE NORTH will anchor at the mouth of the mighty Hawkesbury. Take a scenic ride in one of the ship’s expedition boats to the river’s upper reaches or visit a local Oyster farm.

    And in the evening a live band to make your last night in the Hawkesbury a night to remember!

    Day Four

    The TRUE NORTH will cruise back into Sydney Harbour for 0800 disembarkation.
