Watson's Bay Wharf
Watson's Bay Wharf
Watson's Bay Wharf is located East at the eastern end of Sydney Harbour, near the tip of South Head. Boasting some great views back across the bay towards central Sydney, this wharf mainly services the neighbourhoods of Watson's Bay, Vaucluse and Bondi. Although we usually recommend CBD wharfs for pick up and drop off, if Watson's Bay is a more convenient option for your party, when you book your boat hire with Ucruise Sydney, our staff will be happy to help you arrange for Watson's Bay and recommend the best vessels for your needs.
Choosing Watson's Bay Wharf for Your Cruise Pick Up
Watson's Bay Wharf will be well known to residents of eastern Sydney and the South Head neighbourhoods like Vaucluse, with several important ferry services running regularly to and from the wharf. While it might be a good option for a lot of groups who mostly live in these areas, it should be noted that Watson's Bay Wharf is a little more out-of-date than some of Sydney's other newly renovated wharfs and as such isn't the best choice for parties with special requirements as it lacks accessible boarding, toilets and parking.
Getting to Watson's Bay Wharf
Watson's Bay Wharf is quite easy to access by car if you're planning a quick drop off of passengers and supplies, but parking nearby is quite limited so we'd recommend checking prices and availability out before you arrive. There are several bus services available such as the 325, 324 and 380 that all service nearby neighbourhoods. Your best bet for arriving at the wharf from further afield is by ferry, with regular services from Rose Bay, Darling Harbour, Circular Quay, Manly and Garden Island available. Watson's Bay Wharf also has bike racks.
Unfortunately, one thing that's a little lacking at Watson's Bay Wharf are amenities for last-minute buys. The nearest liquor stores and supermarkets are down in Vaucluse, while the nearest coffee shops are a good 5 to 10 minutes' walk away across Robertson Park. If Watson's Bay is the most convenient pick up spot for your group, please do bear in mind that if you've forgotten your ice or your sunblock, heading off to grab some might cause a significant delay to your day out.
