With glitz and a casual glamour, iconic sights like the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour with its stunning bridge, there’s a lot to attract visitors to Sydney, Australia. The harbour is buzzing with waterside life, and there’s always a party to attend or a new must-visit restaurant to try. Adrenaline junkies love this place too; the Bridge Climb is a very popular activity, and at 134 metres above the sea, the views are mind-blowing. Despite all this, the lure of the ocean and those fabulous beaches is immense, and any trip to Sydney should include time on or in the water in my opinion! Of course, a visit to Bondi Beach, Freshwater Beach or any of the other eminent beaches is an essential part of the Sydney experience, but there’s also something about spending time on the water in Sydney Harbour or perhaps exploring beaches off the beaten track; read on for our Top 3 guide of things to do on or around the waters of Sydney!

There’s also a spacious aft deck featuring large curved sliding glass doors, and the sundeck has its own Jacuzzi; there can be few better places to relax with a glass of bubbly as the sun sets on Sydney Harbour.

For an experience off the water, why not consider a deluxe, luxury beach picnic. Your day starts when your private vessel whisks you off to one of Sydney’s most exclusive beach destinations, only accessible to small boats. Everything is provided to make your picnic just perfect; you have your own picnic table with chairs and beach mats and rugs, as well as an umbrella.

It’s hard to imagine a more romantic setting; the picnics are ideal for special occasions, be it a proposal or an anniversary or just a good excuse to get some quiet downtime just the two of you; stay a while and relax and soak up the serene, beautiful natural setting.
