William the Fourth Cruises

William the Fourth Cruises is a fully restored replica steamship, operating commercial harbour cruises and charters on Newcastle Harbour.

Operated by highly motivated and skilled volunteer crew members, the business is owned and operated by the local community through an Incorporated Association. Cruises are held regularly and charters are available at all times.

The cruises feature an outdoor adventure-style on Newcastle Harbour on a replica of Australia's first oceangoing paddlewheel steamship, to learn and experience in close-up the operation of Australia's largest coal loading port.
