Boxing Day On The Harbour

*** 2023 EVENT CANCELLED ***

Update: 14 November 2023 – We have been unable to secure support from Transdev to use their Manly Ferries on Boxing Day. This means, regrettably, we will once again have to cancel our Sydney to Hobart fundraising event. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused and share your disappointment.

Would you still like to give your support?

The event was last held in 2019, and cancellations over the last four years have resulted in a loss of income for our charity. Please consider donating by clicking here to go to our donations page.

Will this event return in 2024?

We remain optimistic about reigniting this affordable and unique opportunity to support Stewart House and watch the start of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race.

Past event participants and event subscribers have been notified by email of this cancellation. We invite prospective participants to follow us on our social media channels or complete the following form to be notified of future updates for this event. You can expect to hear from us in October 2024!
