Cruises from Sydney FAQ’s

Where do cruise ships leave from in Sydney?

Cruise ships either depart from the Overseas Passenger Terminal located at Circular Quay or the White Bay Terminal which can be found at Rozelle. Both terminals are relatively close to the Sydney CBD and its various landmarks, however, the Overseas Passenger Terminal, in particular, is perfectly nestled between both the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House and within walking distance from Circular Quay train station. Within walking distance from these world-renowned landmarks, we recommend keeping on the lookout for cruises from Sydney departing from this terminal.

How far from Sydney Airport is the Sydney Cruise Terminal?

Travel times will be approximately 20 – 40 minutes via taxi. This is regardless of whether you’re cruise from Sydney is departing from the Overseas Passenger Terminal or the White Bay Terminal. The varying travel time is heavily dependent on the time of departure as a rush hour (between 7am – 9am and 5pm – 7pm) can add a dramatic level of traffic. So be sure to plan ahead and plan early!

However, when taking public transport, travel time is noticeably different depending on your cruise terminal. Sydney Airport boasts a train line that goes directly to the Overseas Passenger Terminal, with transit time being approximately 30 minutes.

In comparison, White Bay Terminal does not have a direct train line, and walking directly to the terminal from the nearest bus stop is extremely difficult, leading to travel times that usually extend to around an hour. If your cruise is at White Bay Terminal, we strongly recommend taking a taxi or a cruise line-organised airport transfer.
