Choosing Man o'War Steps Wharf for Your Cruise Pick Up

Central location, cracking views and plenty of nearby amenities. There are a few good reasons why Man o'War Steps is a popular pick up and drop off point. It's a good option especially for groups based in areas of southern Sydney, with plenty of public transport options leading into the CBD. That said, be aware that there are one or two restrictions on timetables and boat sizes that might mean your best bet is to pick a wharf in nearby Darling Harbour.

Getting to Man o'War Steps Wharf

Given its privileged location right between the Royal Botanic Gardens and the Opera House, you might want to consider planning your arrival at Man o'War Steps as the last stop on a walking tour of downtown Sydney. Almost all Sydney's iconic landmarks are within spitting distance of this wharf, so tourists especially will enjoy a leisurely stroll around the central harbour finished off with a sunset cruise from Man o'War Steps. Public transport to the wharf is quite straightforward. Just head for Circular Quay and calculate a 5-10-minute walk from there. There are no public ferries arriving directly to Man o'War Steps, so people coming in from areas such as Manly, Lane Cove or even further afield should also aim for the Circular Quay or Darwin Harbour wharfs.

Local amenities

As you're in the CBD, there are plenty of things to see and do near Man o'War Steps, as well as lots of shops, liquor stores, cafés, restaurants and bars. Therefore, picking up a few bits and pieces just prior to your cruise is easy, although anything really last minute will still cause a delay as the walk back into the CBD takes around 5-10 minutes.
