Sydney Harbour is Australia’s premier cruise destination, and it is the only port in Australia that has two dedicated cruise-passenger terminals. Both terminals are in the heart of the city, but it is important to take note of which one your cruise departs from.
Overseas Passenger Terminal (OPT) at Circular Quay
The OPT is located at Circular Quay, and the entry to the terminal is located off George Street onto Argyle Street, Circular Quay. While a cruise vessel is in port, passenger drop off and pick up is available in the terminal precinct, but parking is not available on-site. Circular Quay train and ferry platforms are a two minute walk to the terminal, and it can also be accessed easily by busy or taxi. It is approximately a 30 minute drive from the airport to the terminal.
Departing passengers should refer to their itinerary regarding what time they need to be present at the terminal as check-in times do vary and are sometimes staggered by deck number. Bag drop facilities are available on the forecourt for the majority of ships from 9.30am. Only travelling passengers with valid tickets will be allowed to enter the terminal. Arriving passengers will need to reclaim their luggage and clear customs and immigration before exiting the terminal.
Terminal facilities include passenger lifts, escalators, wheelchair access, toilets, ATM and an on-site restaurant. There is no short or long term parking available on-site.
White Bay Cruise Terminal
White Bay Cruise Terminal is Sydney’s newest port located near the iconic Anzac Bridge and best accessed from James Craig Road in Rozelle. Located 6km from the CBD and 17km from Sydney Airport, the easiest way to reach the terminal is by taxi, private vehicle or with a cruise line transfer. Passenger drop off and pick up is available in the terminal precinct and short-term parking for passengers with a valid itinerary is available on-site. The nearest public bus stop for passengers is located on Robert Street.
Terminal facilities include toilets, a food and beverage kiosk, wheelchair access, on-site short-term parking, public payphones and an ATM.
