Leaving the pier by coach, you will first make your way to one of Sydney's icons - the Opera House. The Sydney Opera House was officially opened by Queen Elizabeth II on October 20, 1973, and is today one of Sydney's most famous landmarks. Stopping here, you'll enjoy a guided tour of this imposing building with its distinctive sail-like roof while learning about its history, design and current role. Following your tour, some brief free time will be allowed to stroll about on your own.
Re-boarding your coach, you'll continue on to the Gap at Watson's Bay, which is the south head of the entrance to Sydney Harbor. The spectacular views across the gap between the north and south heads make for some memorable photos and you might recognize that this is where Nautica sailed into Sydney Harbor. A brief stop for photos will be allotted.
Before returning to the ship, a short stop is made at Bondi Beach, Australia's world-famous surfing beach. Both Syndeysiders and tourists alike each come to enjoy the half-mile crescent of sandy beach and the delightful eateries and shops which line the main street.
