Darling Harbour in Winter

No need to wait for NYE to see fireworks in Sydney

Darling Harbour has announced that they will have a regular fireworks display year-round on Saturday nights between 8.30pm and 9pm.

The fireworks take place in the sky over Cockle Bay Wharf so a seat at one of the restaurants on is a perfect way to view them. If you are on a budget grab an ice-cream and sit on the wharf to watch the show.

Things you could do before or after the fireworks

  • Keep warm with a hot chocolate at the Lindt Cafe on Cockle Bay
  • Visit the Aquarium or Australian Maritime Museum
  • Have a drink at Helm Bar – yummy snack food too
  • Head to Darling Quarter or Steam Mill Lane for some eats
  • Check out some live music at Tokio Hotel  or Cafe del Mar
  • Do some late night shopping in Harbourside Mall which has a great range of fashion and souvenir stores with really reasonable prices.

Getting there: Darling Harbour is a short walk from Town Hall station or the light rail also just jump off at the Convention centre stop. If you prefer you can take a ferry from Circular Quay.
