Darling Harbour Events

The events hub of the Sydney city centre, it’s no exaggeration to say there’s always something happening at Darling Harbour. The is the place to go, day or night, for festivals, cultural events, kid-friendly happenings, performances, meet-and-greets and fireworks.

On New Year’s Eve, Darling Harbour becomes one of the main celebratory hubs, and it's where the 9:00pm family-friendly fireworks take place. Throughout the year it plays host to a series of cultural festivals, from South American Fiestas to Southeast Asian Food Fairs. It is also one of the city’s largest dining, shopping and entertainment precincts, which means it's a great place to stop and grab a bite between activities. While in the area, don’t miss a visit to the Chinese Garden of Friendship and the WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo, where you can meet a koala.
