McMahons Point Wharf
McMahons Point Wharf
McMahons Point Wharf is located West of the Sydney Harbour Bridge on Middle Harbour, just across the bay from Luna Park. If this is your nearest wharf, it may be possible to pick up and drop off you and your guests here. However, please be advised that as with many wharfs on the Harbour, certain restrictions do apply at McMahons Point, so when you book your boat hire with Ucruise Sydney, be sure to let our team know of any special requirements your group has. If it turns out that a McMahons Point pick up isn't possible, we can recommend a more suitable wharf nearby.
Choosing McMahons Point Wharf for Your Cruise Pick Up
McMahons Point is a nice central wharf on north Middle Harbour, just to the south of the North Sydney neighbourhood. This location, coupled with cracking views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Luna Park and the Opera House (arguably one of the best views of the Harbour) make it a popular pick up spot for many groups. From here, you can access almost anywhere in the Harbour on a four-hour cruise, so it makes an equally good choice for tourists visiting Sydney for the first time and groups of locals who want to find a secluded bay for a dip. If you'd like to arrange for a McMahons Point Wharf pick up and drop off, let our staff know and we'll confirm if it's possible or not.
Getting to McMahons Point Wharf
Getting to McMahons Point Wharf by ferry is easy thanks to frequent visits from the F3 and F4 services that cover the area between Circular Quay, Cockatoo Island and Abbotsford further up Parramatta River. If you're arriving by public transport overland, the 254, 269 and 291 services all stop within a minute or two's walk from the wharf. For groups looking to get to the wharf by car, please bear in mind that the nearest secure car park is back in central North Sydney, a good 20-minute walk away, and that day-long parking in the immediate vicinity of the wharf is often limited. McMahons Point Wharf has bike racks available.
McMahons Point is classified as an "independent access" wharf by Transport for NSW, meaning there are measures in place to help people with special access requirements get on and off ferries and boats more easily. There are also a couple of eateries in the immediate vicinity, which along with the nearby Henry Lawson Reserve make for good spots to gather your group together before your cruise. For last minute shopping, you have a liquor store about an 8-minute walk away along Blues Point Road, where you should be able to grab any drinks or ice you need. Other items such as sunblock will be more difficult to find unless you head back up to North Sydney.
