Welcome to Harbourside - Where Sydney Celebrates


For delicious waterside dining, amazing entertainment, late night shopping everyday and beautiful views, Harbourside is the perfect destination in the heart of Darling Harbour Sydney.


Located on the western side of Darling Harbour, the centre has over 240 metres of alfresco cafes, bars and restaurants along Cockle Bay, as well as souvenir and jewellery shops, fashion boutiques and entertainment venues including bowling, laser tag, virtual reality and simulated experiences. You can even dance the night away at our nightclubs!
