Sydney: Pyrmont

Harbourside Pyrmont is best known for being home to the Sydney Fish Markets and The Star casino, but it’s also rich in colonial heritage. The historic Jones Bay Wharf was finished in 1919 and you can discover classic pubs, Victorian terraces and commercial streetscapes from the 19th century.

A visit to the Sydney Fish Market to buy fresh seafood is a popular pilgrimage. Learn how to cook your catch at the Sydney Seafood School or grab takeaway fish and chips and eat it on the grass at Wentworth Park. Another delightful picnic spot is Pyrmont Point Park which has sweeping views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Getting to Pyrmont is easy. Walk from the city centre to Darling Harbour and over one of the oldest electrically operated swing bridges in the world, Pyrmont Bridge, which opened in 1902. Or take the light rail from Central Station or Chinatown to Pyrmont Bay, The Star and the Sydney Fish Market.
