• Boxing Day on Sydney Harbour

  • Be Part Of The Action!

    Welcome to Boxing Day in Sydney, No.1 location to be…on the harbour for the Start of 75th Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race! This 628-nautical-mile race is an annual event that draws crowds from all over Australia every year, to Sydney, to watch all the action unfold on the start line.

    Following tradition, the race starts at 1pm on Boxing Day (December 26) in Sydney Harbour every year. This world famous race that attracts sailors and yachts from all over the globe to compete, from weekend cruising boats to 100ft super maxi racing yachts, this truly is a race for all!

    This year 163 boats have entered the prestigious race. Hundreds of cruise boats will hit the harbour and crowds pour around the surrounding foreshore to watch the action this Boxing Day. Get right up close to the action on a Sydney cruise boat this year! Nothing compares to seeing every manoeuvre and hearing the crews communication with your own ears!


  • Boxing Day Cruise Boat Hire

    So when it comes to choosing your Boxing Day cruise boat we have a number of options on offer! Our affordable ticketed cruises on board a large cruise vessel are the most popular choice or for an exclusive cruise we also offer private boat hire. 

    Each vessel can offer different food and drink packages, sit down or cocktail style cruises and all can offer a front row view of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race Start line. Channel 7 is also the offical broadcaster for the event and will be interviewing sailors and race commentators in the lead up to the start so be sure to ask your caption to switch on the tv onboard!

  • HOT TIP!

    Get yourself on a large cruise boat to avoid the constant wash / waves impacting your cruise. The larger catamaran vessels with twin hulls are the most stable options for a bustling harbour.
