The beauty of Darling Harbour

Let me state it at the outset – It is a sheer delight to spend time at the Darling Harbour in Sydney. It is such a beautiful and happening place and being right in the middle of the city makes it only more convenient…much like Times Square in New York!

We went a couple of times to the Harbour since one can cover many famous attractions in Sydney (including Circular Quay, Fort Denison, Manly Beach, Opera House and Taronga Zoo) by taking a ferry from the Darling Harbour – that’s what we did.

After covering QVB and Town Hall on our 1st day, we spent our evening at the Harbour – just strolling, taking in the views, enjoying the shopping centre alongside, and even talking walks on the Pyrmont Bridge.


Before heading back to the hotel, we took a 2-day pass of the ferry so we could cover other attractions starting next day morning. The ferries are normally hop-on hop-off, so you can do sightseeing leisurely. Look out for the packages from various agencies, some club tickets to the zoo along with the ferry fare.

      1. I agree. Just yesterday when a friend littered the street, I asked him why and he replied that he is paying Swachh Bharat cess and so has the right to litter. 😀
        Nowadays I am amused with the excuses & reasoning.
