Pyrmont by the harbour
Pyrmont by the sea
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. You'll dine well at various harbourside restaurants or the iconic Sydney Fish Market.
From its industrial origins, Pyrmont has evolved into a bustling centre overflowing with lively restaurants and harbourside attractions.
Bring out your inner seafood chef by taking a cooking class at the Sydney Fish Markets or lounge at one of the waterfront wharf cafes to sample some of the tasty morsels caught fresh every morning.
Take the family to Pyrmont Point Park, a popular picnic area on the foreshore with barbeque areas and a playground for the kids.
Wander across historic Pyrmont Bridge to Cockle Bay and its attractions - Sydney Aquarium, Sydnw WILDLIFE World and Madame Tussauds - or just follow the harbour foreshore from where you can take in spectacular views of Sydney's skyline and the harbour.
A Pyrmont highlight each year is the International Boat Show when more than 300 exhibitors display everything from kayaks to sport-fishing rigs and luxury yachts.
