James Craig

James Craig is an iconic Sydney attraction and one of the most popular destinations for visitors looking for a unique maritime experience.

As the only Tall Ship from the 19th Century, it is not difficult to see why this majestic vessel is an integral part of the city’s tourism industry.

Unlike some ships, which are replicas of their original versions, James Craig has undergone incredible restoration to ensure they are in proper working condition.

Its restoration allowed the vessel to be in full sailing condition, earning it the prestigious Maritime Medal. The process of restoration took close to 40 years after the vessel was retrieved from Recherche Bay in Tasmania.

One of the most beautiful things about this stunning vessel is that it is open to the public so that visitors can enjoy an experience like no other. With a capacity of 80 passengers, there is no excuse not to enjoy this authentic symbol of rich heritage preservation.

The adventure starts the moment James Craig departs from the berth at Pyrmont. During the cruise, visitors get the chance to soak in the panoramic sights of the harbour, as well as other icons that Sydney is best known for. Look for stunning views of the Opera House and the majestic Harbour Bridge. As the ship cruises further down the harbour, the city’s skyline seems to fade in the distance as it makes its way to the Sydney Heads.

Passengers can help the crew set the sails or unwind onboard. For those who would love to take the thrill a notch higher, nothing compares to the Mast Climb, an adrenaline-packed activity that allows you to be 10 metres above the ship’s deck.

Take a tour of James Craig and walk back to the late 19th century for the experience of a lifetime. Make online bookings for either an afternoon adventure or a more immersive experience, such as a full-day sailing experience.

The James Craig berth is at Wharf 7, 58 Pirrama Road, Pyrmont. Parking is available at Harbourside Car Park, Murray Street.
