Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    It's all about an incredible structure . It's beautiful, but busy. The area is super crowded. So best of luck
    Still a great place to be

    Visited this iconic building which has been transformed into an exclusive shopping mall. Some amazing shops and restaurants, and a brilliant toy and model shop! The architecture is wonderful with beautiful staircases, and a working world clock. Well worth a visit!

    This is a fantastic walk for anyone who wants to see the top attractions but also have a lovely walk. Lots of toilets/cafes/food kiosks on the way. And plenty of benches to rest on.

    We were recommended this gallery and it was certainly unusual, with underground experiences and wacky modern art sculptures, and lovely views out to the harbour area. Not much of the art was to our tastes but the building was interesting and the experience fascinating

    This place connects trains, trams and ferries but it's so much more than just a transport hub. Make sure you explore the shops and restaurants and walk around as it's quie interesting.

    Views of the city, water, and landmarks are great, but it is a little pricey for the time you actually need to spend on the observation deck.

    30 min is enough time for most people.

    Lovely museum with lots of exhibits and boats to go on, would definitely recommend the submarine it is worth waiting for. The cafe does lovely food and lots to see and do for all ages.

    Wow just wow. This museum is amazing. First of all it’s free and for the quality you get it’s insane. The audio tour did it for us. We really felt that we could follow along the path of a “convict”. It makes you feel humble. You will definitely learn a thing or two. Also good that the indigenous people are included in the whole story.

    I visited here for 9.30am mass. Fortunately I arrived sufficiently early to get some photos as the pass-keepers enforced a “no photos during mass” from about 10 minutes before mass started, I don’t think that unreasonable. It’s an amazing church outside and inside. It’s an imposing building and very decorative. There are a number of organs and the acoustics were great. Nice mass too. Well worth a visit.

    We really enjoyed our visit. We arrived at 1.30 and it was fairly busy, but not crazy. We enjoyed the themed areas of the aquarium, in particular the penguins and especially the boat ride through the penguins. We lined up at the sign that said 30 minutes wait, at most it was 15. The employee at the touch pool was great with my children, sharing lots of information. I do feel like the entry price was fairly steep though $178 for 2 adults and 2 children is an expensive day out!

    Used the park a number of times whilst in Sydney to cross to different places. Plenty of room to walk, sit and admire the monuments and flowers.

    The Wild Life Sydney Zoo is located in Darling Harbor in the same complex as the Sea Life Aquarium and Madame Tussauds. The zoo is on the small side, but it does showcase animals that are native to Australia such as koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, and platypus. The saltwater crocodile exhibit was under renovation. For additional cost, you can have your photo taken with one of the cute koalas, but you are not allowed to hold one. Follow the walkway to see the various habitats and different species of animals. The saltwater crocodile exhibit was under renovation when we visited. Other exhibits include frogs, snakes, pythons, and various lizards. Daily keeper talks are held at different locations and times throughout the zoo. Check the schedule when you arrive if interested in any of the talks.

    This memorial is a icon that symbolizes the importance of an area you can pay your respects to the ANZAC regiment who fought for king and country. A free tour and a worthwhile visit if in Sydney.
