Sydney Harbour’s secret beaches & exclusive picnic spots

Sydney Harbour’s many islands are well known, but did you know the harbour’s coastline is dotted with secluded beaches and exclusive picnic spots? Many of these are difficult to get to by car, so a Sydney luxury cruise is a great way to visit these hidden gems.

Take a day trip with Barangaroo Water Taxis to one of Sydney Harbour’s many islands, and learn about Sydney’s Aboriginal, colonial and naval history while you enjoy sensational views of the city.

Cockatoo Island is the largest harbour island and is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. It was a convict prison before it became one of the country’s most important shipyards. Audio, self-guided and group tours are available, and after you’ve enjoyed a BBQ on the waterfront, you can hire a tent, or opt for glamping if that’s more your style.

Part of Sydney Harbour National Park, Shark Island lies just off the exclusive harbourside suburb of Point Piper and boasts spectacular views of Sydney Harbour. Hop off your Barangaroo Water Taxi for an hour or two to explore the island’s foreshore, go for a quick dip, and soak up the incredible views.

Our boats have comfortable seating with clear covers to protect from rain and outdoor seating, so you can sit back and relax as we take you to some of Sydney Harbour’s most beautiful beaches.

Enjoying prime position amongst some of Sydney’s most expensive homes, there are many secluded beaches worth visiting on your Sydney luxury cruise. Lady Martin’s, Shark and Milk beaches are in the East and offer calm waters and incredible views.

In the north, picturesque Clifton Gardens beach has it all — simply roll out the picnic blanket and enjoy a leisurely lunch with a million-dollar view.
