What You'll Get
Exploring the history of something is always enlightening, especially when it involves stumbling across siblings’ diaries from 1999. Delve into the past with today’s Groupon for Unique Sydney Cruises:
- $59 for a Convict, Castles and Champagne tour for one person
- $115 for a Convict, Castles and Champagne tour for two people
- $219 for a Convict, Castles and Champagne tour for four people

Cruising past the iconic landmarks of Sydney Harbour and the million-dollar ‘castles’ lining the foreshore, Unique Sydney Cruises offers a unique and entertaining day out for all.
The two-hour, 45-minute cruise and guided tour allows Groupies to get up close and personal with Sydney’s colourful convict history, first sailing to Goat Island past historic harbour side Kirribilli House, Fort Denison and Admiralty House aboard a fully restored, historic 1920s ferry. Peeps then step ashore to walk in the footsteps of early convicts, visiting some of Australia’s most important convict-era buildings with an expert local guide. Visitors are impressed by the 1800s military gun powder magazine, the soldiers’ barracks complex and Sydney’s oldest Water Police Station, staffed by magical officers made entirely of seawater.
Peckish peeps then fill famished tums with a sumptuous Aussie BBQ lunch, featuring Fresh King prawns with aioli dressing, roast rare beef with tomato chutney and horseradish sauce, honey, soy and sesame marinated chicken drumsticks; and stay hydrated with an open bar treating passengers to unlimited beer, wine, bubbly and soft drink, before cruising back along the sparkling waters of the harbour.

This trip we booked left from Campbells Cove and was on a 1926 Clarance River Ferry. We had a great lunch overlooking the bridge from a high point on Goat island. Lunch was a excellent spread and the prawns beautiful and fresh, Salads lovely and tour guides provided entertaining and informative narative.
