Many attractions for the kids and adults

Here is where you will find Wildlife Sydney, Madame Tussauds and SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium. There are also cafes and pubs around here to enjoy the night life of the city.

Part of the Darling Harbour experience and well worth the walk at any time. Many restaurants and bars to choose from. Lovely atmosphere particularly at night time with the views across the water and the city lights.

Expensive eateries for those with fine tastes. Don't go here if you're looking for cheap and simple food. The Lindt chocolate cafe is a must for chocoholics

So many restaurant and bars to choose from. Not to mention, there's a movie theater and a shopping area along the boardwalk, and The Star casino is walking distance. It's a great place to meet up with friends, take someone out on a date, or even take an out-of-towner.

Cockle Bay, Darling Harbour area is a must do for Sydney siders and visitors alike. There are many attractions for children and adults. Its many bars and restaurants all offer views across the water and Marina, IMO the best view is late afternoon from Harbourside, as the sun highlights the Cityscape. Bars and restaurants also offer "happy hour" when drinks... More

Take a breath from the busy schedule and take a trip here and enjoy the scenery. The restaurants and bars are great and also take part in the 'happy hour' so no worries.

There is so much to do here, we could have spent a week exploring this part of Sydney. Our daughter and I have declared the playground the "very best in the world", and we talk about it all the time. Great restaurants, beautiful views, interesting people-watching...

Bars, restaurants, coffee shops, fast food chains along the bay. Nice place for boat watching. This place has something for everyone. Imax theatre and Harbourside shopping mall. Convention centre and Exhibition centre is nearby. Tumbalong park and Chinese garden within walking distance. Kids would love the public playground with its water play facility. Day or night is enjoyable at Cockle... More

We lived in Sydney (Mosman) for a year and would often take the ferry over to Cockle Bay Wharf. Great restaurants, bars, nightlife. A fantastic venue

This is a favourite place for Sydney locals and tourists to dine, walk around or just have a coffee. Most restaurants are very kid friendly and have kids menus. At night the atmosphere has a great holiday vibe....even for locals who are just grabbing a bite to eat after work. The location is very safe at night and is suitable... More
