Darling Harbour

Darling Harbour is a great destination for relaxation and inspiration, offering an eclectic range of attractions just a walk from the CBD.

Once an industrial site, it’s now a popular tourist spot with an attractive harbour-side vibe that lends itself easily to firework displays and exciting open-air performances.

Home to the city’s major convention and exhibition centre, the area also boasts a number of water-front cafes, plus attractions such as the Sydney Aquarium, the Australian National Maritime Museum and The Chinese Garden of Friendship. The latter is a beautiful, tranquil sanctuary away from the hustle of the city.

And if you’re in the mood for something a little more up-vibe, then check out the spectacular movie thrills of the IMAX Theatre or meet some friends at the Cockle Bay Wharf complex, home to some of the hippest restaurants and clubs in town.

A dynamic hub so close to the city, Darling Harbour is definitely worth a visit.
