Darling Harbour is where we stayed. The Novetel is a fabulous place to stay but make sure and ask for a Harbour side room. Otherwise, it is not all that nice. We were lucky enough to be in Sydney during the Barcardi Rum Cuban Music Festival and again during the Street Circus and Dragon Boat Races.
Just in the Darling Harbour Area all in walking distance, you have the Maritime Museum, Harbourside shopping center, Sydney Aquarium, IMAX Theatre, SEGA World, Chinese Gardens, Convention Center, Pyrmont Bridge and tons of restaurants and shops. Too many to mention.
There seems to always be something going on in the Harbour. Transportation is everywhere. They have a very cheap monorail that bring you everywhere and pass right through the Harbour and they even have plenty of water transportation. The rocket cruise was very cheap, $43.00 for the whole family, and it brought us over to the Rocks, the Aquarium, and Harbour Bridge, the Opera House, and the Zoo.
