Sydney Harbour is Australia's premier cruise ship destination and the only port in Australia with two dedicated cruise passenger terminals – the Overseas Passenger Terminal at Circular Quay and the White Bay Cruise Terminal west of the Harbour Bridge at Balmain.

Sydney's White Bay has been a working port since the mid-1800s, handling just about everything from timber and paper, coal, sugar and cement to cars and containers.

It is now established as Sydney’s second domestic and international cruise terminal, supporting an industry of significant importance to the NSW economy.
