Meeting point

The departure location is Towns Place Wharf, Millers Point. This can be easily located in Google Maps or other navigation systems, and there is an image attached. It is just next door to the Port Authority of New South Wales. The wharf is a public wharf, so specific Vivid signage is limited. Upon arrival to the wharf, look for a Sea Sydney Harbour representative, who will be marking names off before you board the vessel. If you do not see the vessel or a company representative upon arrival, please wait patiently at the wharf as either one will not be too far away. As the city is busy during the Vivid Sydney Festival, plan your travel time well and plan to arrive at the wharf 15-20 minutes prior to departure time. The vessel is unable to wait for late arrivals and due to limited ticket numbers a reschedule will not be an option.
