    In 1942, 3 midget submarines entered Sydney Harbour to attack docked naval vessels. What happened next? Find out on this great harbour tour into Sydney’s history in Sydney Harbour National Park. 

    A National Parks & Wildlife Services guide will take you back to this fateful night during WWII, when the conflict came right into Sydney Harbour. Trace the movement of the submarines on a historic ferry and learn about the civilians and naval personnel involved in this extraordinary story. The cruise will include morning tea on Fort Denison and a visit to Garden Island. Here you will see the conning tower of one of the midget submarines. As this is the 75th Anniversary, the event is extremely popular and is expected to sell out early. During 2016 the tour was awarded 1st prize in tour category from the National Trust Heritage Awards.
