9 Things to do at Pyrmont Bay, Sydney Australia

11:33 4 Comments A+ a-



Sydney has become my second home town after my stay here close to 2 years. Though India ( Chennai ) is my birth place where i lived all 25yrs, there are so many places that i have not visited. All my days were gone with schooling, college, career, job, where weekends obviously flies in a wink of an eye with studies and sleep.  

9 Things to do at Pyrmont Bay, Sydney Australia

Now i have so much time that i can dedicate my time to my passion of travel and photography. I have traveled to so many places in Sydney itself not limited to beaches, parks, bays, ferry, gardens. But what if i can do all these things in a single place? 

So here are my 9  things that you can do in Pyrmont Bay, Sydney Australia.

1. The Star of the Show 

For a fun ride you need not go to a theme park, or some exhibition.  The ferry wheel is available on the go in the bay of Pyrmont. For a 6$ ticket you will be eligible for roughly 6 rounds.

Once you are into the cage, u can never feel that u r into a ferry wheel. It just moves so smoothly up to a height of 42 metres. You can have a glimpse of the entire pyrmont bay, darling harbour, and the bay.

2. Chinese Garden of Friendship


Chinese garden of friendship is constructed in a way to depict Chinese culture and heritage. This can be seen as a fusion of greenery from the Auburn Botanical Gardens and the divinity from  the Nan Tien Temple

Walking through the garden is like walking backwards in time in Chinese monastery and architecture. I was completely drifted by its uniquely shaped rocks, tea house, pond, waterfall, colorful birds and reptiles and the hanging bamboo leaves

There is an entry fee here too. Just 6$ with no time limit. Love the gardens??  Check out more about it here.

3. Imax

4. Ferry Ride
Ferries are just a mode of transport.  Yet they are so fascinating every time i get into them. The blue sea, cool winds with little sprinkles of water blowing over your face and body makes you feel so freshened even on a bright sunny day.  You can take a ferry to taroonga zoo, darling harbour, milsons point, or even to your home at meadowbank and Paramatta along the paramatta river.

5. Star Casino

Spend a penny here and earn dollars if you are lucky.  Star Casino is just in a walkable distance from the Pyrmont Bay.

6. Sydney Heritage Fleet


Are you interested in knowing the architecture and build of the ships, and its histories? For a small fee you can visit inside multiple ships and get enthralled. The fleet operates a large number of historic ships and boats including submarines.

7. Children's Play Area


The entire walkway from the pyrmont bay until the Chinese Garden has so many small play areas with sand, water splashes, sea-saws, slides, etc

8. Grills and Coffees


One obvious thing about lazing around the bays is a coffee with some grilled croissants or a barbecue. The entire stretch of the bay has so many coffee shops and grilles  where you can vegetate.       Pyrmont Bay, Sydney

9. Walkway to Darling Harbour


Pyrmont is a walk friendly place. There is around a 2km stretch from pyrmont to darling harbour where you walk through the pyrmont bridge. I don think i walked so much anywhere else .  Its a pleasure to have a snack on hand chit chatting with your partner, gazing the city and walking hand in hand..
