Welcome Aboard!


The Parramatta River Cruise


It leaves from Wharf 4 at Circular Quay, check for times.
It's a three hour trip to Parramatta with plenty of interest along the way.

Soon after passing under the bridge you'll get a good shot of Luna Park, "Just for Fun"
The ferry drops off and takes on passengers at various wharfs along the river.

I asked her, 'Do you ever miss?' ... "Yep" was her curt reply. So that she
didn't take me for a sleeze I explained that as a pro I was only interested in capturing her skill at casting the rope, she mellowed.

During the 30 mile cruise the mood of the river can change from wide to narrow, tranquil to choppy but photogenic all the way.

Waterview Wharf Workshops are an historically significant group of conserved buildings
that now house a selection of Sydney’s finest creative businesses.

Great again Mark. Loved #1, and how did you adjust things so quickly to get the frozen rope throwing!! Yeh the Workshops really stand out, but on our Ferry Trips didn't get that close to them.
