Darling Harbor
Darling Harbor is intended to be one of Sydney’s “buzz” places, although some visitors find it lacking in character (and greenery). A former dockside area, the small harbor has been transformed into a major tourist site and leading convention and exhibition centre. A monorail service runs from the Central Business District to Darling Harbor and skirts the harbor, making stops at points around the harbor. Until now, Darling Harbor has been a place that has appealed more to little folk, due to the number of children’s attractions, but the advent of the Cockle Wharf restaurant and cafe complex has added a new dimension to Darling Harbor.
Chinese Garden of Friendship
Chinese garden of friendship was designed in China to celebrate the Australian Bicentenary. The garden was a gift to Sydney from its Chinese sister city of Guangdong. It is one of the largest of its type outside Asia. The gardens were designed by landscape architects and embody principles dating back to the 5th century.
Cockle Bay Wharf
Chockle Bay Wharf is the new “in” place to be, with a mix of budget outdoor eating places and posh restaurants. A large complex on the city side of Darling Harbor, it has given the harbor a much-needed boost.
Sydney Aquarium
Sydney Aquarium is one of the largest aquariums in the world with more than 5000 different Australian fish displayed in their natural habitats. Visitors can “walk on the ocean floor” through 145 meters (480 ft) of acrylic underwater tunnels. The aquarium is open 9.30am-9:00pm daily, with the last admission at 8:00pm.
IMAX THEATRE: is a giant movie screen, more than eight stories high, with films shot in the ultra high-definition 75mm format. Some of the brilliant IMAX films in recent years include a voyage around the earth on the Space Shuttle, a climb to the top of Everest and an excursion to Antarctica. Watching one of these films is almost like being there. Sound plays a big part, with speakers placed in different parts of the theatre and behind the screen to create a sense of realism. An IMAX theatre presents the ultimate cinema experience and is something that should not to be missed.
HARBOURSIDE SHOPPING CENTRE: is a shopping complex with 150 shops on two levels, several waterfront restaurants and an International Food Court with 40 outlets. Many of the shops are souvenir-type retail outlets, with plenty of boomerangs and Oz gear.
