Darling Harbour is the glittering gem of Sydney, buzzing with waterfront restaurants, trendy bars and family-friendly attractions. This is where the Sydney dining scene comes to life, with seafood restaurants alongside global family restaurants such as the Hard Rock Café. Sip a cool beer or chill in a chic wine bar while taking in calming views of yacht-dotted Cockle Bay and the twinkling lights of the Sydney cityscape. Children love the sharks and dugongs at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium and can make friends with koalas and other native animals at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo. The Chinese Garden of Friendship is the perfect place to unwind under the shade of swaying willow trees. To sample some Sydney nightlife, stroll around to King Street Wharf for lively nightclubs and themed bars. The harbour walkway continues up to Barangaroo, a contemporary dining and entertainment hub with stylish open-air restaurants and modern cafés, plus a sprawling waterfront park.
