Ultimate family fun this Easter – don’t miss out
If you think Sydney Harbour has nothing new to offer in the way of family entertainment experiences you'd be dead wrong. The pirates are taking over the harbour and your whole family can experience the wildest, most captivating and authentic pirate experience on the planet when Attack of the Pirates sweeps into Sydney Harbour. But will you survive this swashbuckling adventure?

Brand new to Sydney Harbour, Attack of the Pirates offers you a unique Tall Ships experience with mesmerising actors, music, cannons, sword fights, and amazing stunts, all set against the majesty of Sydney harbour and its world famous icons. Brilliantly re-imagined by extravagant producer Paul Ellis, the historic Tall Ship is transformed into a spectacular theatrical setting like no other. It's been described as "an explosive combination of wild imagination, innovation and inspiration". Where else can you get an authentic pirate experience like this?

You can keep a look out for the buried treasure as the sails are hoisted on a search for wealth beyond your wildest dreams. Discover the worth or possible worthlessness of the ship's 'mystery' cargo and witness the antics of the booty-hungry crew and the dastardly captain as he draws his sword to battle for control of his ship. If you dare, this is your chance to be part of a story of notorious pirates, swashbuckling adventure, tantalising treasure and havoc amidships.

There's drama and adventure at every turn for older children and adults, and younger children will love the outrageous pirates and be swept up in the fun of it all. This is truly entertainment with something for all the family.
