Australian Heritage Festival | Icons of Sydney Harbour
- Duration: 150 Minutes (approx.)
- Location: PYRMONT, NSW
- Product code: AHFICONS
Start Time: 10.00am
Finish Time: 12.30pm
Vessel: 1943 Motor Launch Harman
The tour starts at the Heritage Centre in Pyrmont for an introduction to Sydney Heritage Fleet and the tour. Unlike other harbour tours on ferries and cruise boats, our motor launch Harman (c.1943) can take you in close to the shoreline to get amazing views of some 20 or so Sydney icons, some well-known, some surprises and some controversial—and we can tell you about one icon forgotten by most people. Barangaroo, the Opera House, historic mansions and Garden Island naval base are just a few icons you will see up close. And for those who loved our Seven Islands tour west of the Harbour Bridge, this tour takes you past four of the five islands east of the bridge.
The tour finishes back at the Australian National Maritime Museum Heritage Wharf by 12:30pm.
What to wear: Please wear sensible footwear and dress appropriately for the weather on the day; a windproof jacket may be useful whatever the weather.
