So we’ve booked a 6-night cruise with Princess cruises in October from 悉尼 to Tasmania and back. A few days later we were looking at our itinerary and noticed that it departs from the 白湾邮轮码头, not Darling Harbour.

Interesting, we didn’t know there was another cruise terminal, but that said we went to the 悉尼 Tower Buffet a few weeks beforehand and had noticed a cruise ship berthed on the other side of the 悉尼 Harbour Bridge, so we thought perhaps that was it.

After looking at their website and doing a bit of searching online, we discovered that it is located here, near Balmain:

Which seems like the middle of nowhere as far as transport options.

Public Transport

Initially, we thought perhaps we could get some combination of public transport there from Pennant Hills, be it train, bus, ferry etc to the Darling St/Ewenton St bus stop below and then walk down Ewenton St to the terminal:

But after trying to get 悉尼’s public transport route calculator to suggest how I might achieve that, it couldn’t come up within anything. A little investigation on Google Street View also made evident that one cannot access the terminal from Ewenton St anyway. You have to come in via James Craig Road. So the closest bus stop is actually on Robert St near Victoria Rd. Given that, I considered the cost of getting four people there and upon considering who would be travelling with us I decided it may be a lot easier and cheaper to pay for long-term parking or hire a car.

Long Term Parking and Car Hire / Go Get

It turns out though that as Balmain is a residential suburb, there are no long-term parking stations and there are no depots for car hire companies nearby at all. You have to go all the way around to Pyrmont for your closest options and get a taxi from there! There is, however, a Go Get car share pod a couple of blocks further up on Donnelly St as below, I thought this may have solved the dilemma:

My theory here was we could pick up the car that morning, or even the day before, then drop everyone off at the terminal with our bags, leave the car at the pod and walk a couple of blocks back. Should only take me 20 minutes or so.

Don’t bother.

As I mentioned earlier, I decided to check the terminal out on Google Street View. Turns out, Grafton St is actually above the terminal and there is a large, impassable fence. You have to actually go around to Robert St and onto James Craig Rd!

Which is what Google Maps was trying to tell me all along anyway. I did however discover that there is another Go Get pod on the corner of Robert St, closer for walking, about a 15 minute walk I’d say after dropping everyone off at the terminal.

So this is the option that I was basically leaning towards.

Taxi vs Go Get

I had never really considered taking a taxi, in my recent 悉尼 taxi experience it has always ended up being a costly mistake and pickups at our address have been unbelievably unreliable. Doing a quick check on TaxiFare though showed that a taxi would cost an estimated $70-$100.

Go Get would depend whether I got it the day before or in the morning, but it was still going to come in at around $70-$100 as a casual user anyway once you add the $49 annual fee (assuming I won’t use it again this year to split the fee cost).

Keeping in mind the nearest bus stop is actually even further away than this Go Get pod, it would seem that a taxi is the easier option, though it almost definitely will wind up costing a bit more, and that’s assuming they actually turn up to pick us up at the time we book them for, or even turn up at all as has been my experience before when booking a taxi in 悉尼. The other possibility is either a transfer/limo service, a premium valet service, or an Uber.

These are the only options for getting to White Bay Cruise Terminal beside airport shuttles, so if you are concerned about transport, be aware of this when booking a 悉尼 cruise, you may not leave from Circular Quay and you may have the nightmare that is getting to White Bay Cruise Terminal.

Shuttles and Valet Services

Princess does offer a paid airport shuttle/transfer service, but it seems a bit redundant to drive to the airport, pay for the parking there or alternatively pay for the train there for 4 people and then pay to take a shuttle back to White Bay. It’d take half the day up on both departure and return. I understand P&O does now offer a shuttle from the 悉尼 CBD, but again, the cost of getting there plus the cost of the shuttle all seems a bit too much hassle.

I have found a few options for transfer/valet services as below that we may yet consider:

  • Sydney City Shuttle
    • Offers shuttle services from North West 悉尼.
    • Quotes $90 for 4 people from Pennant Hills.
  • Mascot Parking Services
    • Offers a valet service from the White Bay Cruise Terminal.
    • Your car is picked up after you get out and then stored in their car park at Mascot near the airport. It is then returned to you after your cruise arrives back at the terminal.
    • Their website is a bit confusing, but assuming I’m reading it right, it quotes $90 return to provide a standard valet service to the White Bay Cruise Terminal or $180 for a deluxe service (I’m not entirely sure what the difference is).

For those travelling from 堪培拉, it’s worth noting that 默里 offers a very frequent and cost-effective coach from 堪培拉 CBD to 悉尼 Airport and Central Station, so it lines up perfectly with the shuttle services offered by Princess and P&O Cruises. Read my review here.



In the end we actually went with an Uber. There were no Uber X vehicles in the area when we booked so we got an Uber Black, though that was probably a good thing since we had four people in the car. It cost us $124.00 from Pennant Hills to the White Bay Terminal, so a little more than what TaxiFare and the 悉尼 City Shuttle quoted, or what GoGet would have been, but for the convenience it was a better option than GoGet, for ease of booking it was simpler than the shuttle, and for the reliability it was a better option than a taxi. That said, the cheapest option seems to be the 悉尼 City Shuttle.

《Cruising From White Bay Cruise Terminal Sydney (How To Get There)》有4条留言

  1. We will have a cruise trip in January 2018. And to make things worse, we have 6 people and we are from Canberra. I am still tossing up the idea of catching the train from Canberra to Sydney Central Station and catching a maxi from Central Station to White Bay Cruise Terminal or driving there and use the valet parking service. Both are costly, but the valet parking service is around $160 for 7 days and the train itself will set us back at around $350. Not even counted the maxi yet. I am just curious how the port opened a wharf without any facility except the wharf itself.

    • Hey Chris, I hope you and your party enjoy the cruise, we’ve got one coming up in January 2018 as well, but we’ll be cruising from the Overseas Passenger Terminal at Circular Quay this time. White Bay has a long shipping history, but until 2004, it was primarily a container port. Even since then, it has continued to handle cargo as well. So, that means public transport was never needed there until the cruise terminal opened in 2013. It’s still a long time to have no decent, direct public transport links built. There is a bus that gets closish, but it is such a roundabout way to get there. Not sure if you’ve checked the price of buses from Canberra, I know Murray’s and Greyhound both do one for around $36-$45 pp each way to Central Station in Sydney. It’s a pretty good run with Murray’s and reasonably comfortable. I imagine Greyhound is pretty similar. Doesn’t help with getting from Central, but if it can save a few $$ then that still helps anyway.
