Darling Harbour, Sydney | Australia Top Attractions

Darling Harbour

Darling Harbour

Perhaps there is no better place to experience local Sydney life than in beautiful Darling Harbour. This tourist attraction is a favorite of both locals and tourists because it has everything that you could ever need to have a great time—restaurants, museums, entertainment venues and shops for everyone to enjoy.

Some of the top spots on the harbor for visitors include Madame Tussaud’s Museum, the SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, which has the largest collection of Australian marine creatures in the world, and the WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo.

The Powerhouse Museum is another popular attraction on Darling Harbour, especially for families because it features interactive exhibits that talk about history, design, science and technology.

The Australian National Maritime Museum, on the other hand, allows visitors to enjoy a replica of Endeavour, which is Captain Cook’s ship. And if the crowd gets too busy, you can always go to the Chinese Garden of Friendship to get some relaxation while sipping tea.

Darling Harbour is definitely a destination in itself that you need to set aside a day to really enjoy it. Good thing, you can avoid the long queues for tickets by booking your tour with a reputable agency like La Vacanza.
