Darling Harbour Children's Playground - Sydney

The very popular Darling Harbour Children's Playground located in Darling Quarter, Sydney is a big favourite in our family every time we visit Darling Harbour.

There are so many spots to play, it's hard to know where to start which means it will keep the little ones occupied for hours!

There are a range of climbing structures, swings, slides, balance ropes, a flying fox, a giant ring swing and the list goes on!

The best thing of all, there are a number of areas for water and sand play so bring some spare clothes with you!

There are a number of shade clothes throughout the playground but don't forget the sunscreen as some wet play areas aren't shaded.

We love the small and larger water play areas at this playground, perfect for those warm days! My kids didn't want to leave when we went. They loved the water pump stations!

It's so good to be able to pop into the city for a shop, a cultural fix and drop into Darling Quarter for a play and let the kids burn off some energy.
