The harbour is considered an entertainment and tourism hub with restaurants, bars, museums, theaters, shops, parks and more! All sites are walking distance from one another, as this ring of attractions is connected by walkways and boardwalks that face the water. Worn out from an exciting day in the harbour? There is also a little train that loops the area for visitors with children or anyone who would like to relax and enjoy the seaside sights.
You may need to dedicate an entire day for a visit, as there is so much to see and do in Darling Harbour. It has a thriving nightlife with a unique and electrifying vibe as people buzz from bar to bar. That said, the area is great for family fun as well. Children can play on the harbour playground or run through the fountains on hot days. Stop by Cockle Bay for an inspiring dining experience; marvel at sea creatures at the Sydney Aquarium, shop at Sydney’s Harbourside shopping center or visit one of Australia’s top museums.
Darling Harbour has something for everyone: with stunning views, top attractions and excitement all around!

Doing what: Sydney Attraction Pass: Darling Harbour Experience Ticket
We used most of the elements of the Harbour Pass. The only one not used was the meal voucher. This was only due to lack of time as we added our own visits to The Maritime Museum as well as a personal visit to the Wellcome Memorial and the Hard Rock Cafe to our four day stay in Sydney.
We found the pass the best value and once you had collected all your tickets from the Aquarium you were fast tracked through the prepaid shortest queues at each attraction.
We also over heard ticket counter staff at one attraction advising a customer to use the internet to get a Viator Darling Harbour Pass as it was the best way to see all the attractions
