Darling Harbour Turns 35

Darling Harbour turns 35 on May 4, 2023 and we have something special just to celebrate!

On May 4th, 1988, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip arrived at Darling Harbour on the Royal Yacht Britannia, welcomed by a crowd of 10,000 people. They were here to open the newly redeveloped harbour to the public and celebrate all the history of the precinct that came before it.

Marking 35 years since that day, today we celebrate Darling Harbour's thriving dining, and entertainment precinct with some exciting deals and offers, just for you!
