Touring Options


The ultimate racing yacht, "Spirit" is our International America’s cup Class yacht from the San Diego Challenge in 1992. A state-of-the-art, 75ft match racer, "Spirit" is an awesome spectacle and provides a once in a lifetime sailing experience. She is provided with a small crew of professionals and a skipper, and guests may participate in the sailing as much or as little as they wish.

"Spirit" is ideal for a relaxed sail or even a twilight race from one of the clubs around the harbour. For private charters, catering and beverages can be arranged by Kookaburra Challenge or clients can provide their own catering.

"Spirit" operates 3 hour scheduled cruises on Fridays and Saturdays, departing from the Casino Wharf in Pyrmont (across the road from the Casino).

"Spirit" can take up to 30 guests. We require a minimum 10 guests to operate a scheduled cruise.

Bookings are essential.

Explore The Outback

Australia has a vast remote interior, much of it largely untouched. By night, the outback is deathly quiet, with the only light provided by the stars and the moon - a perfect oportunity for stargazing. Explore the isolated heart of the country, meet and connect with Aboriginal people and experience one of the oldest living cultures in the world. Go ‘walk-about’ and immerse yourself with Australia’s endless outback horizons.
