The best way to get acquainted with what Sydney has to offer is to start your
night tour at Darling Harbour and continue your adventure on foot. The harbour represents a large pedestrian
precinct, making it a perfect place for those willing to catch a pleasant summer breeze, enjoy one of the many
entertainment venues with spectacular views or perhaps enjoy a firework show every Saturday night. With so many
different options, surely anybody can find something fun to enjoy in the spectacular Darling Harbour.

Can’t decide whether you want to catch a quick bite, attend a music gig or just
have a few drinks? Well, why not combine it all by taking a stroll up to Newtown? This suburb of Sydney’s west casually combines everything one could want from a night out on the town.
Newtown's King Street or sometimes even known as Eat
Street offers great deal of restaurants and fast food joints from
various cultures. It’s also quite known for its cultural character because of the wide array of live music
venues, jazz clubs, theatres and art galleries. There’s only one thing that can’t be found in Newtown – and

It seems as every major city in the world has its own
personal Chinatown, and Sydney’s no
different. Of course, while these districts always exude with a somewhat similar vibe, it’s safe to say that
Sydney’s Chinatown has a peculiar appeal to it. With a variety of Asian-influenced venues, sushi bars and
charming restaurants, this hurried place has the ability to take you to a completely new world of tastes. If you
happen to find yourself here on a Friday night, you can enjoy the Chinatown Market and all it offers, from
street food specialties to some amazing arts and crafts inspired by the Eastern culture.

art galleries, theatres and various cultural venues to please just about any artistic craving you might have.
Surely, the Sydney’s Opera House is the first option if you wish to enjoy some remarkable shows. Of course, Sydney is
globally praised for its spectacular art scene, so it’ll be no trouble finding a quality piece of entertainment
whether it’s an art exhibition at the Art Gallery of NSW, a theatre performance at the Sydney Theatre Company or
perhaps an interactive display at the Australian Museum.

Once you get tired of the never-ending coastlines, surfy sandy beaches and the
admirable cultural and historical heritage, it’ll be the perfect moment to get your groove on and enjoy a night on
the town. This Emerald city, as it’s sometimes referred to, will give you a chance to experience a marvellous blend
of entertaining and fun activities, regardless of what you usually enjoy.
