Where do cruises depart from in Sydney?

There are two ports in Sydney where cruise lines dock and depart from: the Overseas Passenger Terminal in Circular Quay and the White Bay Cruise Terminal.

Most cruises bound for Hawaii depart from the Overseas Passenger Terminal. Larger liners on world cruises tend to depart from White Bay.

The Overseas Passenger Terminal is easily accessed from the airport by public transport. Take the train direct to Circular Quay Station then walk 5-minutes to the cruise terminal.

Airport to cruise terminal transfers

Airport shuttles and taxis are also available and can get you to the port within 25 minutes. Shared shuttles start from $15 each way and can be booked online through City Discovery and Viator
