Pier 26, located adjacent to the Aquarium Wharf boasts of an interesting line-up of bars, restaurants and entertainment areas. The place itself has enough fun activities going on to please the entire family.
Darling Harbour is one big showcase of fun and entertainment. Once a thriving dockland, it was redeveloped in 1988 to coincide with the 200th anniversary of European settlement in Australia and began with the construction of a large exhibition and conference center, which has been complemented with the addition of shops, restaurants and other attractions. The huge waterfront tourist and leisure park literally hums with its emphasis on family entertainment. Highlights include Sydney Aquarium, the Australian National Maritime Museum, the Chinese Garden, Star City Casino, the enormous IMAX Cinema and the Powerhouse Museum. Darling Harbour is a year-round beehive of activity with events for the entire family winter, spring, summer, and fall. Over the Christmas holiday season, the harbor is a magical festival featuring live music, entertainment, Christmas tree lighting, search-for-Santa, and Christmas carols. So, if you're travels find you in Sydney during the holiday season, Darling Harbour is the place to be.
Occupying a superb site overlooking Darling Harbour, the seven core exhibitions displayed here represent the diversity of Australian maritime heritage covering such subjects as the Aboriginal presence, navigators, passengers, commerce and leisure. It is also possible to inspect HMAS Vampire and Onslow. A Welcome Wall pays tribute to more than six million people who have crossed the world to settle in Australia.
Located on the waterfront, Wharf 3 lies close to Sydney Harbour Bridge. Featuring a warehouse and an outdoor space, this is amongst the most sought after venues of Sydney. The harbor side backdrop provides a perfect setting for musical shows and concerts.
