Event Details:A leisurely Sunday BYO lunch aboard an historic steamer, while you cruise the waters of Sydney Harbour. What could be better?
Bring along a picnic lunch and beverages of your choice and board Waratah, a grand old lady of 121-years, while you discover interesting places and learn about their history.

Waratah was built at Cockatoo Island in Sydney Harbour in 1902 and you will see her birthplace, along with other Harbour islands, Goat, Spectacle and Snapper.
