Where do cruises depart from in Brisbane and Sydney?


Cruises from Brisbane depart from Brisbane Cruise Terminal at Portside Wharf. Although you can reach the cruise terminal by either bus or train, taking the bus is the more convenient option as the train stop is further from the port and requires you to change at Eagle Junction.

The Line 303 bus provides a direct link between Portside Wharf and Brisbane airport, which takes around 20 to 25 minutes.

Alternatively, you can take a taxi, shuttle or Uber and reach the port in less than 10 minutes.


The Overseas Passenger Terminal in Circular Quay is Sydney’s primary cruise port. You can take a train from Sydney International Airport and get to Circular Quay station in approximately 20 minutes, and then walk half a kilometre to the cruise terminal.

If you choose to take a taxi, shuttle or Uber, it takes 15 to 30 minutes depending on the traffic.

Sydney’s second and less-used terminal is White Bay Cruise Terminal in Rozelle. There is no direct public transport to the terminal. However, taxis, shuttle and Uber are readily available and take around 15 to 20 minutes.
