You can enjoy a lazy walk around the harbour, or take the Pyrmont pedestrian bridge to cross to the other side and visit Australia’s only Madame Tussauds wax works museum.

Take in historic Town Hall
Venture into the heart of Sydney’s CBD and visit Town Hall, one of the city’s landmark buildings. This magnificent sandstone building was constructed in the 1880s and features grand Victorian Empire architecture. It is home to one of the world’s largest pipe organs, which was built between 1886 and 1889 and is still functional today.
Town Hall continues to function as a working venue, and today it houses the Sydney City Council and Lord Mayor’s office. It is also home to a historic collection of more than 300 items including artworks, gifts to the city and artefacts. Guided tours are available.
