Head down to the harbour to see and experience the most popular Sydney activities and Sydney tourist attractions. Short Sydney Harbour cruises help you stray from the beaten track and capture the magnificent sights and sounds of Sydney from the decks of a luxury catamaran – a sightseeing experience that is far removed from the hustle and bustle of teeming crowds.
The Magistic Two is an Australian-built luxury catamaran with three expansive outer decks that give you ringside seats and perfect photo opportunities to capture the magnificence of Sydney’s most alluring sights
Other Sydney sightseeing tours pale in comparison to the Magistic sightseeing experience. So, indulge in sightseeing the ‘Magistic’ way and experience the difference from the staid and traditional sightseeing expeditions. The Magistic sightseeing cruise takes you across the main harbour with great views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Sydney Opera House and numerous other attractions that dot the harbour.
As you head towards Point Piper, the playground of the rich and famous, you can see the Woolloomooloo Naval Dockyard and Fort Denison. Catch glimpses of the elusive Shark Island and ever popular Luna House. When you head back towards Circular Quay, you will have photo opportunities galore to capture great moments with your family and friends with the Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House as the backdrop.
The vessel is also equipped with an informative GPS-based commentary system that makes the Sydney Harbour sightseeing cruise all the more interesting. The commentary is subtle and intermittent, providing you with appropriate information at timely intervals.

The unique sail design of the Opera House is courtesy the Danish architect Jørn Utzon. Open to the public 363 days a year, the Opera House hosts over 1,500 events on its three stages, with an annual audience of 1.2 million! It’s also one of the most visited tourist attractions in the world with over 8 million yearly visitors!
The world’s tallest arch bridge rising 440 ft above the water, the Harbour Bridge is affectionately known as ‘The Coathanger’. About 272,000 litres of paint was required to give the 2.4km long structure its initial three coats. Officially opened to the public in 1932, the Harbour Bridge is forever a part of the Sydney skyline.
In days of yore, the wildest convicts were left to rot on this once barren rock with minimal provisions. Concern with the threat of foreign attack of the harbour's inner defences caused the government to build a fort. Now Fort Denison is a popular tourist attraction, restaurant and location for weddings and other events.
Shark Island gets the name from its shape which bears some semblance to a shark. Known to the Aborigines as Boambilly, it is a popular get away for Sydneysiders and tourists who want some peace and quiet. Shark Island Light, an active lighthouse built in 1913 is found on the northern part of the island.
One of the official residences of the Prime Minister, the house dates back to 1854. Kirribilli House is open to the public one day a year so they can explore this beautiful gothic style structure with fretwork and large bay windows. The house has also played host to many important international dignitaries.
Opened in 1935, Luna Park’s rides and entertainment are a favourite with both children & adults. The smiling face that greets you at Luna Park is inspired from Old King Cole, a character in a nursery rhyme. It is one of two amusement parks in the world that are protected by government laws, enjoying a protected status.
In 1810, convicts carved a sandstone rock into the shape of a bench on a peninsula in Sydney Harbour for Governor Macquarie's wife Elizabeth. And thus Mrs Macquarie's Chair came into existence, with the area offering a panoramic view of the Sydney Harbour along with the Opera House and Harbour Bridge.
Originally used as a vegetable patch by Lieutenant Ralph Clark, an officer of the First Fleet, the island is uninhabited and used by Sydneysiders as an idyllic picnic location. Clark tried to raise vegetables but almost all of it got stolen leading him to give up on the idea, but his name stuck on.
Taronga is the Aboriginal word for beautiful view and it does offer pretty views of the harbour, at the same time runs as functional zoo. One of the few zoos to breed elephants and platypuses in captivity, Taronga Zoo is one of the world leaders in animal conservation and a fun place to visit for all.
To the right of Point Piper is Sydney’s most expensive harbour front properties. Now one of the coveted residential locations, it wasn’t always the case. With the Japanese bombing during World War II, beachside property was available at cheap rates with the owners vacating and moving to the Blue Mountains.
