Darling Harbour is one of the world's great waterfront destinations. With its spectacular harbour setting, Darling Harbour has many of Australia's key tourist attractions and is also a favourite place for Sydneysiders to spend their time relaxing and celebrating.

Getting to, from and around Darling Harbour is easy. Arrive by train, bus, Metro Monorail, Metro Light Rail or walk down from Sydney's CBD. You can enjoy the harbour by water taxi, ferry, harbour cruise or jet boat.

Get up close to Australia's extraordinary undersea creatures at Sydney Aquarium, one of the largest aquariums in the world. Catch a movie on the big screen at IMAX Theatre. Discover the history and the stories of the seas at the Australian National Maritime Museum and visit the Powerhouse Museum-home to Australian history and culture.

Take a walk on the wild side at Sydney Wildlife World. You'll discover nine unique Australian habitats-from a spectacular rainforest to the iconic red centre-showcasing more than 6,000 of Australia's furry, scaly, hairy and spiky creatures.

Star City Casino offers a range of activities. The Lyric Theatre has presented a wide range of leading local and international entertainment events since 1997. You can also experience one of Sydney's finest international or local shows at the Star Theatre.

For a change of pace, escape to a tranquil oasis in the heart of the city at the Chinese Garden of Friendship. Take a journey through the winding pathways and experience the serenity of the garden's traditional pavilions, lakes and waterfalls.

Take a cruise on Sydney Harbour or get a bird's eye view from Sydney's Monorail. Stroll along the foreshore of Cockle Bay to find many fine dining restaurants and hip clubs. Darling Harbour is a great place to simply take time out.

Along with a program of fantastic free Sydney entertainment every week, Darling Harbour hosts six free major annual events including the stunning Australia Day spectacular, the Latin American-inspired Fiesta, a Jazz & Blues Festival and the Hoopla acrobatic and street theatre festival.
