Took the 30 minute ferry trip from Cronulla to Bundeena. The sea was a bit rough - and the ferry is cancelled sometimes due to bad weather (bus replacement offered) - but it was an enjoyable trip, nonetheless. $6.40 single trip (cash only), with a 50% discount for concession holders. Nice views of the landscape and expensive real estate along... More

We live nearby to Cronulla and often we take overseas visitors on this ferry: recently painted blue and white in honour of the Grand Final victory of the Sharks . I used to holiday at Rathane C of E camp as a small boy and so the upper Port Hacking is a nostalgic trip always.There is a good commentary on... More

Fantastic relaxing experience. Booked a table for Xmas with friends for a dinner cruise. Very reasonable cost plus the advantage of the beautiful Port Hacking scenery as you eat a very generous 3 course meal. Staff were very friendly & attentive. Would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing dinner with fabulous views.

Catch the ferry across the bay, go bush walking, swimming or grab a bite to eat.. the ferry isn't expensive, makes for a great family day out.

Great service, friendly and inviting staff, great food and great weather if you are lucky. We have done a Music Cruise and decided to try the Lunch time cruise. Great value for money and a pleasant way to relax and watch the scenery. Commentary was very interesting and we will be back, soon I hope..........

It is a small ferry - like going back in time, even the bag for tickets and money looks like it is from 50 years ago. We took the ferry to Bundeena which is a small village on the edge of the National Park. Walking just 15 minutes we arrived at Jibbon Beach - quiet beach with beautiful sand. Great... More

This is a small ferry which does short trips between Cronulla and Bundeena in Sydney's southern suburbs. Bundeena is a lovely village located in the Royal National Park, and an ideal place to visit. The ferry crosses Port Hacking and it is a great little trip if you want to see a different side of Sydney.

It is a very different side of Sydney we agree, and that is why everyone who does this trip agrees with you. we are happy you had an enjoyable time with us. More
