MORE ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCEForget those mega-tour boats with crackly speakers and hordes of tourists. Here's your chance to get out on the open sea in true style--aboard a beautiful 38-foot yacht. You'll enjoy an intimate and luxurious setting aboard ‘The Hunter’--Liquid Edge Yacht Charter's premier vessel.
Sail beneath Sydney Harbour Bridge, take in the Opera House and then head over to Manly, Middle Harbour, The Zoo or the historic areas around Balmain and Parramatta River for a day of lounging, sun bathing and site seeing.
Relax in the refreshing sea breezes on deck or head below and soak up the sumptuous wood-accented living area whilst listening to some tunes on the Bose sound system. Be sure to bring a long a bathing suit, because if the weather's fine, you are welcome to jump off the boat's swimming platform for a reviving dip.
And if your interest in boats extends beyond just being a passive passenger, Liquid Edge invites you to take the helm and chart your own course. It's a great way to experience the thrill of owning your very own yacht--without the steep price tag! learn more
BET YOU DIDN'T KNOWWhen you cruise beneath Sydney Harbour bridge, you'll be cruising past an awe-inspiring piece of engineering. After six years of construction, the bridge was opened in March of 1932. It held together with six million hand-driven rivets and contains 52,800 tonnes of steel.
The concrete pillars that serve as footings for the bridge are clad in granite that was quarried near the Australian town of Moruya and transported to Sydney by three different ships that were specially made for the task.
To make sure the bridge was safe for traffic, as many as 96 steam locomotives were placed on its roadway as a test of its load-bearing capacity. Passage for horses and their riders over the bridge once cost 3 pence, but the march of time has seen to it that equines are banned and cars now cost two dollar twenty pence.
It is still free, however, to walk over the bridge--or sail under it!
