Aptly named Darling Harbor highlights Sydney

Arguably the most iconic city in Australia, Sydney has risen to become one of the world's most popular tourist destinations. There is certainly no lack of attractions in this metropolis of 4.3 million people, but a stop in Darling Harbor during your tour of Australia is a must.

Located in the center of the city, Darling Harbor has developed into a hub of entertainment and tourism, and throughout much of the year there is something happening almost every night. For instance, in October there are fireworks every Saturday night, and given the picturesque backdrop of Sydney, they likely put any Fourth of July display to shame.

Of course, weekly fireworks are just the tip of the iceberg for attractions in Darling Harbor. Nature enthusiasts can check out the Sydney Aquarium and Wild Life Sydney, both of which feature some of the most unique creatures in the Land Down Under. The Harbor also plays host to cultural festivals on a regular basis, from the Egyptian Festival in November to Chinese New Year in February.

Darling Harbor is also a great place to close out your Australia tour due to its abundance of restaurants and bars. With more than 60 establishments to choose from, there's no better way to wrap up the trip with a meal on the water.
