Where do cruises depart from in Sydney?

Sydney has two international cruise ports: the Overseas Passenger Terminal at Circular Quay and the White Bay Cruise Terminal in Balmain.

Cruises bound for New Zealand usually depart from the Overseas Passenger Terminal. Those flying into Sydney can reach the terminal by taking a train direct from the airport to Circular Quay Station. Airport shuttles and taxis are also available and take approximately 25 minutes to reach the port.


Airport to cruise terminal transfers

Numerous shuttles depart from Sydney Airport direct to the port.

Single shared transfers can start as little as $14 per person and transfers are available to both the Overseas Passenger Terminal and White Bay Cruise Terminal. Both can be booked online through Viator.

    I would like a cruise from Sydney to NZ then to Tasmania – not longer than, say, 10 days ideally. Can you recommend one? Any amazing deals for start of December or January?

    Thanks!
