Profile: Darling Harbour

Profile: Darling Harbour

Darling Harbour is a waterfront neighborhood directly west of Sydney’s central business district and north of the city’s Chinatown. The neighborhood offers up some of the city’s best dining, shopping, and entertainment experiences around funky King Street Wharf and Cockle Bay.

Families are spoiled for choice with loads of fabulous activities possible in and around Darling Harbour. Most popular are SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium and WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo. On hot days, the Chinese Garden of Friendship is an oasis of cooling calm with waterfalls, lakes, exotic plants, and secret pathways.
