A $15 million upgrade to the wharves and jetties at Darling Harbour’s Cockle Bay is now complete.
Works involved the demolition of ageing marine structures, including the Harbourside jetty and Convention Wharf. These were replaced with 330 metres of a new floating boardwalk featuring a new ferry and water-taxi wharf.
The upgrades provide three new, direct entry links to ICC Sydney, Harbourside and the Australian National Maritime Museum.
The upgraded wharf and floating boardwalk were designed to provide pedestrians with improved accessibility and greater leisure and water-based transport options
Darling Harbour attracts more than 26 million visitors a year, contributing $800 million a year to the NSW economy.
