PORT AUTHORITY OF NEW SOUTH WALES

Your guide to cruising from Sydney: the home of cruise in Australia


With its iconic Harbour Bridge and Opera House, Sydney is Australia's cruise gateway and one of the world's most beautiful ports of call. Sydney Harbour is the only port in Australia with two dedicated cruise passenger terminals: the Overseas Passenger Terminal at Circular Quay and White Bay Cruise Terminal at Rozelle – both managed by Port Authority of New South Wales

Overseas Passenger Terminal, Sydney

Located in world-famous Circular Quay, the Overseas Passenger Terminal is Australia’s premier cruise destination.

Road: Access the drop off area via George Street or Hickson Road.

Rail: Circular Quay train station is a short walk and has direct links to the airport.

Taxi: Pick-up/drop-off is right outside the terminal.

Ferry: Circular Quay ferries are a short walk away.

Check the Sydney cruise schedule for arrivals and departures.

White Bay Cruise Terminal, Sydney

Located in Rozelle, White Bay Cruise Terminal is one of Australia’s most popular domestic cruise terminals.

Road: Acess is via The Crescent / James Craig Road – not by Robert Street. Short-stay parking only.

Taxi: Pick-up/drop-off is outside the terminal. Advise your driver to arrive via The Crescent / James Craig Road.

Ferry: Captain Cook Ferries run a cruise-day service.

Check the Sydney cruise schedule for arrivals and departures.

Arriving and checking in

Your cruise line will advise you of your check-in time.

Bags can generally be dropped off from around 9am. You can then head to security screening. Like an airport, you’ll need government-issued identification. Passport is best but, on domestic cruises, an Australian driver’s licence or equivalent is fine. Both terminals have elevated gangways but please ask for assistance should you need it.
