Hello Pyrmont / Darling Harbour
Surrounded almost entirely by water, Pyrmont in Sydney might feel like an island but enjoys a fantastic, central location. You can walk to the city center and CBD in just 15 minutes via Pyrmont Bridge, but not before exploring this up-and-coming neighborhood first. Once a bit run-down and neglected, Pyrmont has undergone something of a transformation while still hanging onto its maritime roots. Tech and media companies have followed some of the country's best chefs in setting up shop here, while its pocket-sized parks are perfect for a picnic and to watch the local fishermen. Waterfront bars and restaurants serve up craft beer and some of the city's best seafood, while for the freshest-of-fresh fish you need look no further than Sydney Fish Market. This is the world's second largest fish market of its kind in terms of the variety of fish sold and makes for a dazzling spectacle. Explore the stalls, sign up for a seafood cookery course or just sit down for some of the best sushi you've ever had or are likely to have.
