This is excellent news For Flamin' Galah Sydney Tours and Airport Transfers as a much larger aspect of the business model is these days aimed at cruise ship passengers.  There is a huge demand for passengers to experience Sydney and for them to make the very most of their time here.  We are offering both private as well as public tours to cruise ship passengers and also the option of cruise ship and airport transfers.  City sights tours as well as tours around Sydney's countryside are tour itineraries we are very passionate about.

The 10-year Cruise Development Plan was a recommendation of the NSW Government’s Visitor Economy Industry Action Plan (VEIAP). The announcement came after the 2013 Cruise Industry Source Market Report, released by the Cruise Lines International Association Australasia in Sydney last week, revealed that the Australian cruise industry is now ranked number one in the world for market growth and penetration.

“The Cruise Development Plan will help NSW plan for the forecast growth in cruise ship calls and passengers numbers and to capitalise on opportunities to grow our State’s overnight visitor expenditure,” Mr Stoner said.

“In 2013-14 Sydney welcomed a record 261 cruise ships and in 2014-15 an additional 32 are booked to call into our Harbour City, including maiden calls from Celebrity Century and Carnival Legend.

“The plan, to be developed in consultation with industry, will forecast the growth in cruise ship arrivals and passenger numbers to ensure NSW is equipped to capture a larger share of the economic benefits, including providing food and other supplies to cruise ships, pre and post-cruise tours for passengers and developing financial models to identify capacity and infrastructure needs,” he said.
