Curated list title
Intro copy getting to Darling Harbour is super-duper easy, whether you prefer to walk, bike, drive, train, water taxi or ferry in. We reckon taking public transport is best, but there are heaps of secured car parks in the area too.
Chinese Garden of Friendship
The Chinese Garden of Friendship is a tranquil retreat in the middle of the city, and one of the best things to do in Sydney.View Details
Australian National Maritime Museum
The Australian National Maritime Museum is home to Australia’s biggest collection of maritime treasures, exhibitions and archaeology. Find it across two modern buildings right on the waterfront at Cockle Bay Wharf. Highlights include entry to the HMAS Onslow (a real working submarine) and deck tours of the HMAS Vampire - the last of Australia’s big gun ships. This monster of a vessel features 4 Bofors anti aircraft guns and 3 twin turrets, each housing six guns.Australian National Maritime Museum
Darling Quarter Children's Playground
If you gave a 10 year old genius with a wild imagination free reign to create whatever they wanted, you’d probably end up with something like Darling Quarter Children’s Playground. In the heart of Darling Quarter, this wonderland features a huuuuge 21 metre long flying fox, an 8 metre-long mega-slide and 83 sqm of climbing nets.Darling Quarter Children's Playground
Sea Life Sydney Aquarium
There’s so much to explore at Sea Life Sydney Aquarium. That includes the largest Great Barrier Reef exhibition in the world, teaming with jubbly jellyfish, colourful coral, sea turtles and more. There’s also a sub antarctic exhibition where you’ll catch king and gentoo penguins waddling around and diving into icy waters. Further on, you’ll find gigantic sharks, dugongs, shipwrecks, rockpools and more.Sea Life Sydney Aquarium
Stroll along the boardwalk
As far as free things to do in Sydney go, a stroll along the boardwalk in Darling Harbour is near the top of the list. If you’ve got the time and want to get the kids out for some exercise, you can walk around the entire Harbour, all the way from Pyrmont Bay to Millers Point.
If the kids fancy some wide open spaces and lush green lawns for a game of tag or a picnic, Tumbalong Park is the way to go. This 5 hectare grassed area is smack-bang in the middle of Darling Harbour, right next to Darling Quarter Children’s Playground. Plus if the kids (and the kidults) need to relax after all the fun, the serene Chinese Gardens of Friendship are just next door.
Wildlife Sydney Zoo
Experience Australia’s diverse and adorable wildlife all at once at Wildlife Sydney Zoo in Darling Harbour. Put at least a half day aside because there’s a lot to see - from Tasmanian devils in the Devils’ Den and cuddly koalas in Gumtree Valley, to forest dragons in a replication of the incredible Daintree rainforest.Read More
