Darling Harbour Hotels

The original docklands of Darling Harbour have been transformed into a tourist mecca with entertainment for the whole family. Cockle Bay Wharf offers dining options from budget to upscale and million dollar views of the harbour. Young crowds gather on weekends for nightlife that ranges from salsa clubs to Dj’s. Families can visit the Chinese Gardens of Friendship or the Sydney Aquarium, one of the largest in the world. The Sydney Maritime Museum and the IMAX theatre are also popular attractions. The Harbourside Shopping Centre is a site unto itself, with hundreds of shops, restaurants and bars. On Saturdays in the summer, the city puts on a spectacular fireworks show along the harbour's shore and there are plenty of other free events during the year - Darling Harbour Fiesta, VIVID’s light installations and the Sydney Festival, just to name a few.

    Good for casual stroll & to take in the sights of the marina & city.
    Waterfront area in the heart of the city. Take a slow casual walk along the very long bridge, with 360° views of the surrounding marina & city landscapes. Good place for jogging or just a relaxed stroll. There are some attractions below the bridge, plus Cockle Bay Wharf - a stretch of food & entertainment area.

    Nice area to go around
    An area with nice conditions and looks. The streets are clean and the water is nearby. Here you can find the passage of time in the form of museums and places of entertainment. There are many places to eat, they are overpriced and not particularly good. The harbor area is long and especially good for moving and walking.

    An absolute delight to explore!
    The vibrant atmosphere, waterfront views, and buzzing energy made it an instant favorite. Strolling along the harbor, I was spoiled for choice with an array of restaurants, shops, and attractions. The SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium was a highlight, bringing the ocean to life with mesmerizing exhibits. The laid-back vibes, coupled with street performances, created a perfect setting for a leisurely day. Whether you're a foodie, nature enthusiast, or just in the mood for a scenic escape, Darling Harbour nails it – a must-visit gem in the heart of Sydney!

    I visited this beautiful harbour with my wife and Daughter. Not only is it a lovely setting but lined with shops and restaurants. The iconic swing bridge gives tall ships access to the harbour, and the National Maritime Museum has some great examples of shipping through the ages. Perfect for people watching, relaxing and enjoying the scenery.

    A Sydney must see
    If you have kids you will end up visiting darling Harbour a lot. Excellent aquarium and the kids highlight of the zoo. We parents loved the views and Madame Tussaud’s. The harbor is great for walking but even better when on a ferry

    Interesting section of Sydney with nice views of the harbor area.
    We liked the area around the harbor -- museums, restaurants and views. It is where you can take the ferry to Circular Quay, the hub for all ferries and rail/train connections. Walk across the Pyrmont Bridge for many more restaurants, bars and scenery. Loved the fireworks on Saturday night but go early for a good place to view them.

    Beautiful area
    We stayed very close so went here several times day and evening during our 3 days. It’s a lovely area, especially at night when it really comes alive. Plenty of good places to eat and drink, easy to catch ferry to circular quay and then on to lots of other places. We thought this was one one of the nicest areas in Sydney.

  • Central Business District Hotels
    The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.

From yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theatre, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.

  • The Rocks Hotels
    The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
