Whether you are a seasoned traveler or a first time vacationer, Sydney is a remarkable vacation destination to witness a delightfully varied array of recreational activities and places. Framing the glittering ocean, the harbor is considered a major tourist attraction with many museums, parks, shopping complexes, playgrounds and a range of fine dining establishments.
Located just a short distance from the harbor, accommodation in establishments such as the Sundowner Inns guarantees essential comforts, fantastic food and friendly hospitality at attractive rates for those who desire to live modestly while giving priority to exploring the culturally varied spectacular events and places in Sydney. The harbor area boasts several impressive museums such as Madame Tussauds, wax museum where the visitors can delight by getting up close with the very realistic wax structures of their favorite celebrities, or the Australian National Maritime Museum, housing an extensive collection of remains from maritime adventures and vessels from the bygone era.
Among the many restaurants and cafes that are located around the darling harbor ranging from exclusive upscale establishments to cozy outdoor settings including the Cockle Bay Wharf and King Street Wharf, none is more unique for the occasional tourist than the SS South Steyne, a retired steam ferry that was a ferry for over 36 years now serving as a floating restaurant offering a picturesque view while enjoying delectable meals. After a wholesome meal, visitors can stroll along the precinct and be amused and enthralled by attractions such as the Sydney Aquarium and the Sydney Wildlife World or unleash their inner shopaholic in one of the many shopping complexes and minor boutiques. Aside from the regular attractions, visitors will occasionally be able to witness and participate in exciting events such as the popular cultural festivals that proudly celebrate the diversity in Australia with music, dances, arts and authentic cuisines.
