Default Docking in Sydney

Cruise ships of all lines dock in Sydney at two locations, each of which can accommodate 1 vessel at a time.

1. Overseas Passenger Terminal - Circular Quay.

2. Wharf 5, Hickson Rd, Darling Harbour.

The following link indicates the Port of Sydney berth allocation by date order for all cruise departures/arrivals.


This list is sorted by date, so it is easy to find your departure/arrival. Look down the list then across to the right, to find the location.

If you are lucky you will dock at the International Passenger Terminal at The Rocks area just to the right of the bridge and overlooking the Opera House. In the pic ^^^ there is ship (Cunard I think) docked there.

Alternatively you will pass under the bridge and dock in Barangaroo.

Either way it's quick and easy walk to Circular Quay and the ferries, shopping and trains.

The ship in the picture (if not changed recently) is the QE2.

It there any parking near the tent (wharf 5) Wharf 8 was good, you could drop off the bags and have lunch in the pub across the road.
