First architecture cruise sold out

Within hours of appearing in the Sydney Morning Herald today, the first Architecture Harbour Cruise was sold out. There is now a long waiting list of people who want to get the watery view on architecture. More cruises will run in Sydney Harbour on the first Saturday of the month for the rest of 2005.
