Darling Harbour

Kev K

Darling Harbour is made up mostly of convention centres and extremely overpriced shops selling tourist trinkets. It is set in quite a nice location and so may be worth passing through. Cockle Bay, on the city side of the cove is a much better place to stop and eat. Otherwise, ask anyone who lives in Sydney, no one who has been there once would ever bother to go back unless they had a reason.

One of the annual highlights of the region is the award-winning Illawarra Folk Festival, which is only one hour south of Darling Harbour in Bulli, and bursts into party mode each year (17-20th January 2008). This event is the perfect opportunity for Sydney-based travelers to visit via train and experience the true spirit of Down Under; including Aussie Bush and World Music dancing at the Global Green, spontaneous late-night pub gigs, camping out alongside locals and visiting the stunning world-renowned beaches of the region. Further details tel: 1300 887 034.

The casino is also nearby, but not really part of Darling Harbour.
