A stones throw from the bustle of the downtown core is this hive of activity. Situated on a horseshoe-shaped bay, this is a pleasant walk and a great spot to see the Sydney skyline from a completely different angle. It is a 15 minute walk from the heart of the city. The biggest movie screen in the southern hemisphere is found here too at the IMAX theatre. Many options are available for every craving of the food and beverage kind. From simple take-away gelato to towering seafood platters, it is all here! The National Maritime Museum is located at one end and it too is well worth a visit (entry fee). There are Naval vessels moored there, from antiquated replica tall ships to stealth submarines and the historical tour inside is fascinating. To cross from one side to the other by foot, the walker is treated to not only great views but also a short stroll, over one of the last operating 'pivot-bridges' in the country. The bridge periodically swivels to afford ships with tall masts entry to the refuge of this little harbour. The best value for food is found in the food-court inside the 2 level mini-mall located beside the convention centre entry doors. This is a great spot for lazy fish & chips, a high-end sit down dinner, a cold beer, a pleasant coffee or take in a movie. Great walk from the main hotels. Well worth the easy effort. There are countless shops to pick up everything from beautiful photographs to authentic Australian keepsakes. Highly recommend.
