Sydney Harbour Tall Ships is a small family-owned company that allows thousands of people each year to ‘step back in time’ aboard a historic Tall Ship or Wangi Queen ferry and sail around Sydney Harbour. An experience aboard takes in all the senses; you’ll smell the fragrance of her tar and timbers. Taste the salt in the air. Feel the deck underfoot and a rope in your hand as you take part in setting sail. Listen to the creak of her rigging, a boisterous song from the crew or, the peace and quiet as the ship glides silently through the water. And… feel the love and joy that sailing provokes. This auction is for a Convicts, Castles and Champagne Tour, which offers a unique tour of Sydney Harbour and historic Goat Island, allowing you to get up close and personal with Sydney’s colourful convict past. You’ll enjoy an entertaining and fascinating guided convict history walking tour on the island with a delicious lunch and a relaxing cruise around the harbour, so sit back and take in Sydney’s beautiful harbour vistas whilst sipping on delicious chilled champagne – what more could you ask for? Your guided walking tour will engage you with tales of punishment, deaths and escape whilst you visit sites such as the amazing early 1800s military gun powder magazine, the solders’ barracks complex and Sydney’s oldest Water Police Station. On your cruise, you will also sail past some of the wealthiest and most prestigious suburbs in Australia and take in the harbour side castles. Your cruise includes: a freshly prepared substantial lunch as well as Australian bubbly, juices and water. Please note: Drinks such as standard beers, wines and soft drinks are still available on board at regular bar prices and your boarding time is 15 minutes prior to the tour start time.
