Visited Sydney show boat cruise on 25th of June 2018. Poor quality of service and food. Although brochure says freshly prepared food would be supplied however canned food was provided which was not tasty at all. Please avoid this cruise

Darling Harbour
The original docklands of Darling Harbour have been
transformed into a tourist mecca with entertainment
for the whole family. Cockle Bay Wharf offers dining
options from budget to upscale and million dollar
views of the harbour. Young crowds gather on weekends
for nightlife that ranges from salsa clubs to DJ's.
Families can visit the Chinese Garden of Friendship or
the Sydney Aquarium, one of the largest in the world.
