  Darling Harbour..
by Sweetberry1

Darling Harbour is a beautiful waterfront leisure and entertainment destinations.
In 1812, Darling Harbour developed from a market wharf to what became a major industrial and goods-handling precinct.
A post-war immigration scheme saw many of Australia?s first immigrants set foot on Australian soil at Darling Harbour, my family included...

When Sydney was founded in 1788, the bay was called Long Bay, but because of the plentiful supply of shellfish found in this area, it soon became known as Cockle Bay.
The bay was again renamed in 1826, becoming Darling Harbour, in honour of Governor Ralph Darling Sydney?s Governor at the time.
Darling Harbour is home to the Australian National Maritime Museum, Sydney Aquarium, IMAX Theatre and Powerhouse Museum..
