Right at the heart of Darling Harbour, south west of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Aquarium Wharf is one of the most central wharf options available to people booking boat hire through Ucruise Sydney. It's an accessible wharf with plenty of amenities and availability, making it a popular choice for many parties.
Choosing Aquarium Wharf for Your Cruise Pick Up
If you need a central Sydney pick up and drop off, especially on the south side of the Harbour, then Aquarium Wharf could be one of the best options for you and your group. Easily accessed from the bustling nearby areas of Wynyard, Darling Harbour, Woolloomaloo, Pyrmont and Surry Hills, Aquarium Wharf is especially good for parties of holiday makers who are staying in the CBD hotels. It's also an accessible wharf with ramps and other features making it a great choice for groups with special requirements.
Getting to Aquarium Wharf
Thanks to its privileged location in the Sydney CBD, Aquarium Wharf has plenty of access options from roads to light rail, ferries and more. If you decide to come by car, however, take into account the CBD traffic before you make your final decision. While it's arguably quicker to come from north Sydney neighbourhoods like Northbridge, residents of the southern Sydney suburbs such as Rosebery will find they can get to Darling Harbour in around 45 minutes on public transport. Even some of the further flung suburbs like Beverley Hills are still only an hour away. Aquarium Wharf is also part of the Manly-Darling Harbour (MDH) loop, meaning even residents as far away as Manly Beach can get to the wharf with relative ease.
It's in the city centre, so you can imagine that most last-minute supplies are available around and about Aquarium Harbour, with liquor stores, supermarkets, cafés, bars and restaurants all just a few minutes walk away. Plenty of parking is available, but bear in mind that some secure car parks require prior booking and you will be paying higher prices than elsewhere in Sydney for a day pass.
