Visit Enticing Darling Harbour

A precinct of Sydney, Darling Harbour is home to many of the city’s entertainment options. The shopping and dining options in Darling Harbour are some of the best in the Sydney region, and this draws a large amount of tourism every year. From the holiday destination, getting to Sydney's central business district could not be easier, as it is just a 10-minute walk away. There are numerous public transportation options throughout Darling Harbour, which makes exploring the surrounding region a breeze. The waterside location provides optimal water views and the area's holiday rentals are right in the middle of it all. The district has an unmistakable energy that makes a holiday experience unforgettable.

Cruise the Waterways

One of the best ways to see the Darling Harbour area is by water. There are a number of relaxing cruises to choose from, many of which are ideal for hosting events. Delicious appetizers and dinner options are available on the cruises, as well as cocktails. Live entertainment cruises keep patrons fully occupied while leisurely passing through the harbor's waters. Both day and night cruises are available; however, the day-time cruises are directed more towards sightseeing than entertainment. For a different type of cruise all together, try a harbor jet ride. These high-speed boats take large groups of people through the harbor and provide as much of a thrill as they do information about the area.

Museums, Art Galleries and Culture

Throughout Darling Harbour, there are several museums for exploration. Some of the more popular options include Madame Tussauds Sydney - a wax museum featuring the likeness of over 75 well-known celebrities - and the Australian National Maritime Museum, an indoor/outdoor museum that notes the colourful history of Australia.

Art galleries are a prominent feature of the Darling Harbour area, and in fact, one of the Sydney's oldest and most respected galleries, Sydney Galleries, is set here. Aboriginal artwork is the main focus of Sydney Galleries, and a number of local artists are highlighted. Pieces are available for sale, and this allows visitors to take a piece of Darling Harbour's culture back with them.

Located at the edge of Darling Harbour just a block from Chinatown, the Chinese Gardens of Friendship are a must-see while in town. Stunning traditional Chinese architecture meets the beauty of nature to create a stunning environment for relaxation. lsThe park is home to a variety of animals, including water dragons, koi fish and many birds.

Refuel and Unwind with Food and Drink

After a day of exploring, there is no better place to place to dine than Darling Harbour. There are a number of waterside dining establishments, with a great mixture of one-of-a-kind eateries and international chains, such as Margaritaville. There are even establishments that specialize in dessert options. When the sun goes down, the fun does not end. There is a thriving nightlife scene in Darling Harbour with a wide range of bars, clubs and swanky lounges.

Kid-Friendly Fun

When in Darling Harbour, there is plenty to do to keep the youngest members of your holiday party happy. WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo is a great place to get up close and personal with a variety of species. At this attraction, walk amongst kangaroos, wallabies and even emus. Informative zoo keepers and interactive exhibits make for a great experience. For a different type of animal adventure, check out the SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium. There are over 700 species and 13,000 marine animals here, making the attraction one of the world's largest aquariums. A free outdoor adventure, the playground at Darling Quarter is a great place to let kids burn off some energy. Swings, slides, climbing equipment, water games and a huge flying fox are just some of the enticing features of this playground.

Getting to Darling Harbour

Getting to Darling Harbour is a simple feat, with the area's close proximity to Sydney. The convenient location puts the town near several of Sydney's other precincts, so Darling Harbour is a fantastic place to use as a home base during your holiday.
