Relive Australia Day By Cruising—guest post by Mia Alindogan
Australia Day is dubbed as the Australian version of Thanksgiving. It’s a day when Australians celebrate the First Fleet arriving in Port Jackson on the 26 of January.
What better way to celebrate and relive this special event by spending it on a day cruise! The Sydney Harbour is a sight worth seeing with its sparkling blue coastline and the Sydney Opera House.
Some people enjoy the amazing fireworks on Australia Day while others just relish the delicious barbeque in the perfect weather.
Friends and family gather for an ideal day of feast and festivities to mark their national pride.
Some people enjoy sun bathing on the beach, others having roasts and barbeques in their backyard while you can take it up a notch by doing it on a cruise and actually relive the day by the Sydney Harbour. There is so much to do on Australia Day. Other than the fireworks and the food, there is ferry racing, fly-overs and tall ship parade, tugboat ballet and much more.
Many cruises specially decorate your entire boat with special Australia Day themed items and flags, party memorabilia, etc., so that you truly enjoy the national day. Cruises offer a wide array of delicious things to indulge in. From canapés and treats to buffets and cocktails, they have got it all covered. Let the open bar set up in the boat with the bar tender take care of you and your guests, enjoying the day will be really easy as the infectious celebratory vibes are all around.
Since it’s a family-friendly day, why not bring your entire family including kids out for a fun time at the harbour? Older people can enjoy it as well and they have special accommodations for people with disabilities. It’s fun for all ages. Nowadays, cruise boats have exclusive kids’ areas so you don’t have to worry about bored kids bothering you by asking “when can we go home?” over and over again. Although the sea and fireworks will keep them pretty much preoccupied all the time, there are fun activities and games available in the cruise as well. This will ensure that you have a relaxing time with other adults.
If you have never planned your national day out like this before, then look no further. Surprise your family and friends by booking an amazing and unforgettable journey across the Sydney Harbour. You will not regret it and who knows, you might even make it an annual family tradition.
