Mardi Gras Sunset Cruise 2022
Sydney Harbour is the home to Australian cruising, from its iconic landmarks such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House, to the little known sandy beaches of the inner harbour like Camp Cove and Obelisk Beach.
Again this year, the gays take over the Harbour in what has now become one of the hottest tickets on the calendar – The Mardi Gras Sunset Cruise.
Friendly, welcoming and warm, just like the city, the exclusive venue is the Bella Vista, one of the grand party boats of Sydney. An ideal floating palace from where you can view the breathtaking sights you’ve always wanted to see!
Indulge in delectable canapés as the sun melts over the best stage in Sydney. This is THE event for outgoing locals and our sexy international guests alike!
The cruise is strictly over 18’s only – so remember to bring your cash for the bar and your photo ID.
Meeting at the Man O’War Steps, the wharf beside the eastern forecourt of the Sydney Opera House, board for departure at 6:00pm.
Once on board, mingle and relax with a cash only bar. Canapés will be served during the evening whilst you cruise around the harbour. The evening’s entertainment will showcase the delightful and different parts of Sydney and its jewel, the Harbour itself.
It’s an all weather event, across two decks. The main deck will be serving food and tunes. The upper deck (weather permitting) is open air, with a relaxed feel and plenty of room to take in the sights.
With an arrival time back at Man O’War Steps at 10:00pm, you will still have plenty of time to make your own way to the late night partying on Oxford Street, or take a night time stroll around the Quay. Either way, it’s your party on the Harbour, Enjoy it!
