Pyrmont by the harbour
Enjoy Pyrmont's harbourside location with a walk or jog - along the foreshore taking in two of Sydney's best parks, Pirrama Park and Pyrmont Point Park. Dine well at various Sydney restaurants in the Pyrmont area or head straight for Sydney Fish Market and eat fresh sushi and sashimi or fish 'n chips.
More about harbourside Pyrmont
Pyrmont was once a thriving part of colonial Sydney and its beautiful yellow block sandstone was used in some of Sydney's most well-known buildings around the city including the Art Gallery of NSW, Sydney Town Hall and Sydney University.
Today, it is once again a bustling neighbourhood with great restaurants, upmarket delis and cafes, parks and gardens. Historic Union Square, the focal point of the village, is surrounded by sandstone heritage cottages housing exquisite boutique shops. The Powerhouse Museum located behind Darling Harbour is one of Australia's largest and most diverse museums with exhibits of decorative arts and design, science, technology and transport. The interactive exhibits for kids are particularly good. Pyrmont is a short walk from Darling Harbour.
