Good : Nice sailing experience. Nice friendly crew. If you are interested, you can actually learn quite a bit about the first fleet. They have wine, beer and juice in the bar and you have to pay separately for them. For full experience, you need...More

We joined the 2 hour evening sail and had a fantastic time. The crew were lovely, view were beautiful and food was delicious. Everyone in our party agreed. It’s a really great way to see Sydney Harbour and learn about the history of the area.

All smooth sailing as our company team of 7 enjoyed the glistening waters and spectacular views of Sydney Harbour. Fun, friendly crew provided interesting and informative commentary throughout the 90 minute tour. Highly recommend for both visitors and Sydney locals or a company team outing.

Good historical perspective of Sydney Harbour and a fun time on the water. The Captain and crew were very friendly and helpful, leaving us with a wonderful memory of our short visit to Sydney. The cruise would have been rated higher if not for the...More

We were extremely disappointed in the Sydney Harbour Cruise company because the cruise was cancelled the day before our scheduled event. I made the reservations a month in advance for the ONLY day we were in Sydney - probably the only time we will ever...More

Fantastic tour around Sydney harbour! The crew was great and very competent. A must do is to climb up the mast, that was the best thing of all!

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighborhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The

The two properties you have nominated are almost identical in every aspect. From apartment size to proximity to a supermarket, as well as distances to various attractions. That said, if I were to choose between the two, taking into consideration your two kids, I would probably favour Meriton Pitt Street for several reasons. It's closer and level walk to Town Hall Station, which is going to be prominent when travelling to Circular Quay, potentially many of the other areas of the CBD, and...More
