Sydney Harbour Top Deck Lunch Cruise
Thoroughly enjoyed it. Weather was perfect. Want to do it again. Food servings were a good size and lovely. With choices to suit everyone. Staff were efficient. Only criticisms are that ⁰it went too quickly and that they could have been a bit more generous with the Chardonnay jus on the chicken.

When to Get There

The Sydney Harbour Bridge is always open, but it can get busy, especially during rush hour. To beat the crowds, visit at sunrise or after dark, when the bridge is dramatically illuminated. For the most spectacular photo opportunities, time your visit for sunset or visit during Sydney's legendary New Year's Eve celebrations, when the bridge forms the focal point of the epic fireworks display.
