Doing the trip between the city and central coast so often is close to unbearable - the traffic on Pacific Highway and Pennant hills road is getting worse and while the 3 lane motorway is easier now, it is still a boring trip. The only...More

Hi, the best way to reach the start of the cruise would be to go to Brooklyn. You would need a hire car to get there as I don't believe there are any regular public transport options to this area. I cannot vouch for the... More
