Sydney is home to two cruise terminals, the Overseas Passenger Terminal (OPT) which is situated at Circular Quay and White Bay Cruise Terminal in Rozelle. The Overseas Passenger Terminal is around 13km from Sydney airport and takes 15-20 mins in a car. The rail network in Sydney is a good option too, you can reach the city centre in just 10 minutes from the airport and the Overseas Passenger Terminal in just 20 minutes. If you are sailing from the White Bay Cruise Terminal the distance from the airport isn't too much different and is situated 16km away which takes around 20 minutes by car. For White Bay, public transport isn't really ideal with you having to catch a bus and train which would take approximately 50mins.
Sydney really has something for everyone including iconic beaches such as Bondi and Coogee, why not take both in on the same day and partake in the Bondi to Coogee walk. Sydney is home to a range of top class restaurants and stunning natural attractions. Circular Quay is one of the worlds greatest natural harbours and is where you'll find the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour bridge, why not do the bridge climb whilst you're here?

Also situated next to Circular Quay is The Rocks, this is the European settlers first landed and effectively makes The Rocks as the birthplace of modern Sydney. Here you can learn about the history of the area and how its gradually changed from a colony of convicts into the entertainment centre it is today.
