About White Bay Cruise Terminal
Boasting dazzling views of the Sydney skyline, White Bay Cruise Terminal is Sydney’s newest cruise terminal, catering for smaller cruise ships (less than 49m tall) that can fit under the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
White Bay is located on Robert Street, Rozelle on the foreshore of Sydney Harbour. On event days, access to the Terminal is available via James Craig Road. Note that there is no vehicle access to the Terminal via Robert Street on event days (pedestrians and cyclists, however, may enter this way). A map of the location is provided below.
Getting thereBy car:
Direct access to the venue/event is via James Craig Road, and NOT Robert Street. Cars will not be able to access the venue from Robert Street (the boom-gate will be closed). You are, however, welcome to park on Robert Street and proceed by foot to the venue (less than 1km, or approximately 10mins).
James Craig Road is accessible from the Anzac Bridge/The Crescent, with the route clearly signed. See the map below for instructions on how to access the venue via James Craig Road. There are 160 car parks available at the venue (available for the duration of the event only).
A number of bus services stop near the intersection of Victoria Road and Robert Street, Rozelle. From this point it is approximately 1.5km to the venue, or around 20-25mins on foot, straight down Robert Street (there is a pedestrian/cycling path that is not affected by the vehicle boom gate). Route details are available here.
Note: there are no nearby train stations, meaning the only access to White Bay via public transport is by bus or ferry.
Is there a more glamorous way to arrive at a venue like this then by boat? Unfortunately, the most direct route (via Captain Cook Cruises), only runs on cruise days. Meaning the only other option is to catch a ferry to Balmain East, and then hike west along Darling St, before zig-zagging down to Robert Street. This is a piece of cake if you are on a bicycle - but is a seriously long walk if you are not.
You can find out more about catching a ferry here, including route details and timetables.
Of course, perhaps the best way to access White Bay is by bicycle. With multiple safe routes available, including a separated cycle path over the Anzac bridge if you are coming from the east (plus the James Craig Road route, eliminating the need to brave Victoria Road), there are multiple ways to access White Bay on two wheels. You can even mix-and-match modes, taking a ferry to Balmain East, before exploring Balmain/Rozelle on your way back around to the venue. See Sydney Cycleways for more information.
The White Bay Cruise Terminal car park has capacity for approximately 160 cars - and is available for our use. If this carpark is full, we recommend back-tracking along James Craig Road, and then back towards Robert Street, where you may find on-street parking only a short walk form the venue (around 10mins walk from the boom gate).
Please note that the car park is available for the duration of the event only, and that all vehicles must be removed once the event has concluded. Any vehicles left overnight run the risk of being impounded. Note: all vehicles must exit via James Craig Road (i.e. exit the same way they entered).
