Vivid Sydney Fireworks In Darling Harbour

This waterside pocket of Sydney has got it all; amazing entertainment, fascinating museums, incredible wildlife and delicious dining options right on the water plus a brand-new food precinct. Darling Harbour is a fantastic family-friendly destination right in the heart of Sydney that has something for everyone.

Discover one of the tall ships at the Australian National Maritime Museum. If you’re looking for something less active and more zen, head to the Chinese Garden of Friendship which is a tranquil haven.

It’s easy to keep kids entertained, with four attractions within walking distance. They can take selfies with their favourite stars at Madame Tussauds wax museum, meet the dugongs at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, get up close to koalas at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo or burn off some energy at Darling Quarter Kids Playground.

You can see world-class shows at ICC Sydney, a convention, exhibition and theatre complex that hosts everything from theatre to concerts. Darling Harbour also holds a variety of food and cultural festivals throughout the year at Tumbalong Park.
