Once a vital component of Sydneys industrial waterfront, this Darling Harbour suburb is now known as a popular entertainment destination.
During the week, Pyrmont becomes a bustling metropolis. Youll find tourists and business suits alike, spilling out of the offices, cafes and the heritage-listed pubs that fill its stoney streets.
The suburb has a real urban-village feel. Some pockets of the area are dominated by brazenly modern apartments and high-rises, whilst other show-off their perfectly pruned parks and slivers of glistening foreshore.
Pyrmont boasts an array of indulgent eateries ranging from Messinas infamous ice cream to David Chang’s only restaurant outside of New York, Momofuku Seiobo. It also features the ultra-slick and recently revamped casino The Star.
For those after something a bit more low-key, the Sydney Fish Market is not to be missed. Nearly 50 tonnes of seafood are auctioned off to hungry Sydneysiders each morning at 5.30am.
