King Street Wharf 8
When it comes to waterfront entertainment in Sydney Harbour, Darling Harbour certainly ticks all the boxes. From restaurants and bars to great shopping, the world's largest cinema screen and even a zoo and aquarium, there's no shortage of things to do in Darling Harbour. For that reason, the King Street Wharfs are among the most popular spots for cruise pick up and drop off in all Sydney Harbour. If you'd like a Darling Harbour pick up, when you book your boat hire with Ucruise Sydney, just let our team know and we'll be more than happy to arrange it for you.
Choosing King Street Wharf 8 for Your Cruise Pick Up
As it's right next to the CBD, King Street Wharf 8 is a good central option for parties who are spread out over different parts of Sydney. Also, although there are still certain restrictions on tonnage and vessel size, it's one of the more flexible wharfs in Sydney Harbour in terms of the wide range of boats you can hire from here. Because there are so many fun things to do in the near vicinity, especially for tourists and families, we often recommend taking a sunset cruise from King Street to cap off a great day out in central Sydney.
Getting to King Street Wharf 8
Like other CBD wharfs, King Street Wharf 8 and the nearby area makes a great finishing point for a city centre walking tour, so if you're new to Sydney, we'd highly recommend you take a stroll around the streets and shops in the vicinity to really drink in the Sydney vibe. You can come to King Street Wharf 8 by car, of course, and there's plenty of secure parking nearby, although you may have to book a spot in advance to guarantee it, and you should expect to pay city centre prices as well. Public transport is also readily available, with trains, buses and ferries all arriving nearby. You can also grab a water taxi from elsewhere in the harbour if you'd prefer a more private experience.
It's the city centre, so there isn't much you won't find within about 5 minutes' walk of the wharf. One great recommendation is to meet up a bit earlier in the King Street Wharf area and enjoy a harbour-side drink with your mates before your vessel arrives.
