A bold blend of old and new, Pyrmont is an inner city suburb of Sydney, defined by its spectacular harbourside, brazenly modern buildings and touches of old-world colonial charm. Discover world-class entertainment, acclaimed gastronomy and a captivating crowd of city slickers, trendsetters and fishmongers.
Things to do in Pyrmont
Pyrmont is best known for Sydney's premier casino, The Star. Here you can see a musical at Sydney Lyric Theatre, dine at the world-famous Momofuku Seiōbo or dance the night away at Marquee. Whatever you do, make sure you try Australia's most-loved gelato at Messina.
One of Pyrmont’s most iconic attractions is the Sydney Fish Market, the largest of its kind in the southern hemisphere. Buy the catch of the day or join a cooking class at the Sydney Seafood School.
For a quiet retreat amid the bustling streets, escape to Pyrmont Point Park. Located on the northern tip of the peninsula, this is a pleasant picnic spot with spectacular views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Wander down the recently restored Jones Bay Wharf, lined with luxury yachts, al fresco cafes and upscale restaurants like the Flying Fish.
Take in Pyrmont's colonial charm with a stroll through its historic Union Square to admire the sandstone buildings, before checking out the old lighthouse and Sydney’s Heritage Fleet. Here you can sail aboard the Jame’sCraig, a tall ship built in 1874 or visit the Australian National Maritime Museum.
Getting around Pyrmont
Thanks to its central location, accessing Pyrmont is easy. From Sydney's CBD take a short stroll across Pyrmont Bridge, a historic swing bridge reserved for pedestrians and cyclists. Alternatively, you can take the light rail from Central Station on the Dulwich Hill Line five stops to Pyrmont Bay. However, one of the most scenic ways to reach Pyrmont is by ferry.
