From world-class shows at Sydney Lyric in The Star to the daily catch at the Sydney Fish Market and colonial heritage, harbourside Pyrmont is captivating. There are classic pubs, Victorian terraces and commercial streetscapes from the 19th century. The historic Jones Bay Wharf was finished in 1919.

Getting to Pyrmont is easy. Walk from the city centre to Darling Harbour and over one of the oldest electrically operated swing bridges in the world, Pyrmont Bridge, which opened in 1902. Or take the light rail from Central Station or Chinatown to Pyrmont Bay, The Star and the Sydney Fish Market.

The Star is an exciting entertainment, dining, hotel, shopping and casino complex. Treat your senses to acclaimed restaurants at The Star, such as Sokyo and Momofuku Seiobo. You’ll find more delicious restaurants in Pyrmont, including LuMi and Flying Fish on the beautifully restored Jones Bay Wharf.

The Star Sky Terrace during the Sydney Festival, Pyrmont

A wonderful events calendar is filled with performances at Sydney Lyric and exhibitions at the Powerhouse Museum, which features technology, science, engineering and design. Savour mouth-watering food and wine events too, such as the annual Pyrmont Festival of Wine, Food and Art in May.

A visit to the Sydney Fish Market to buy fresh seafood is one of other popular things to do and see. A short walk east is the historic Union Square and examples of colonial sandstone heritage. For sweeping views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and a delightful picnic spot, visit Pyrmont Point Park.

Sydney Fish Market

A range of tours are available, from Sydney Harbour cruises to guided walking tours of architecture and colonial history, among others. You can sail aboard Sydney Heritage Fleet’s James Craig, a tall ship built in 1874. About $30 million was spent restoring the James Craig to its former glory.
