Have you ever wondered what secrets lie beneath the surface of the ocean waves? We are about to find out as we dive into the marine life that calls this wonderful place home!\n\nAs we stroll through Darling Harbour, you’ll start to feel a fresh sea breeze that signifies our proximity to this vibrant underwater world. You see, SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium is not just any regular underwater experience. It's a living postcard, an underwater journey of Australia's rich aquatic life.\n\nSeeing this striking building, it’s hard to understand the scale of what is kept inside. You may be surprised to know that it houses over 700 species and an astounding 13,000 individual fish and sea creatures! This speaks testament to the robust construction and genius design that went into this place.\n\nImagine back in 1988 when this phenomenal structure was inaugurated, they had little more than a sketch and a dream. Today, that dream comes alive with incredible marine biodiversity. Architect Michael Rayner strived to give visitors a \"deep dive experience\" into Australia's aquatic life.\n\nAs we stand here before the aquarium, look around and take in the modern design that merges perfectly with its surroundings. The reflective glass echoes the shimmering harbour waters and the lush greenery softens the otherwise industrial scenery. A well-thought balance of natural and man-made aesthetic, don't you agree?\n\nNow, let's immerse ourselves in the marine spectacle inside. Walkthrough clear underwater tunnels to see sharks swim overhead or discover the incredibly cute \"Penguin Expedition.\" Do you remember Happy Feet? Prepare to meet his compatriots in the flesh! And here's a fun task for you - as we explore, try identifying the four difference penguin species that call this place home.\n\nHidden in this treasure trove is Dugong Island. It's home to the only pair of Dugongs on display in the world. These adorable sea creatures have a wonderful backstory - they were rescued as orphans and now reside here. A heartwarming tale of survival, wouldn't you agree?\n\nOnce you've taken it all in, or even better, made some new aquatic friends, make sure to signal when you're ready to continue our journey. Our next stop would be a shift from underwater marvels to soaring heights. But let's save that for when we get there. For now, enjoy the SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium - a splash of marine wonder in the heart of this vibrant city!"}]},{"address":"Barangaroo House","placeId":null,"location":{"longitudeDelta":0.18593639059244998,"latitudeDelta":0.09219986310369421,"latitude":-33.86554376065722,"longitude":151.20159735},"media":[{"type":"place","content":{"types":["establishment","food","point_of_interest","restaurant"],"formatted_address":"35 Barangaroo Ave, Barangaroo NSW 2000, Australia","partial_match":true,"geometry":{"viewport":{"east":151.2029463302915,"south":-33.8668927302915,"north":-33.8641947697085,"west":151.2002483697085},"location":{"lng":151.2014869,"lat":-33.8655753},"location_type":"ROOFTOP"},"address_components":[{"types":["street_number"],"short_name":"35","long_name":"35"},{"types":["route"],"short_name":"Barangaroo Ave","long_name":"Barangaroo Avenue"},{"types":["locality","political"],"short_name":"Barangaroo","long_name":"Barangaroo"},{"types":["administrative_area_level_2","political"],"short_name":"City of Sydney","long_name":"City of Sydney"},{"types":["administrative_area_level_1","political"],"short_name":"NSW","long_name":"New South Wales"},{"types":["country","political"],"short_name":"AU","long_name":"Australia"},{"types":["postal_code"],"short_name":"2000","long_name":"2000"}],"plus_code":{"compound_code":"46M2+QH Barangaroo NSW, Australia","global_code":"4RRH46M2+QH"},"place_id":"ChIJuw_BUpqvEmsR_coGOc68cLQ"}},{"type":"img","content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FtJDHXwt3UKGH5tURKdIN%2Fbarangaroo%20house.jpeg?alt=media&token=6acb9550-7a10-4e77-8e5a-303a94464248"},{"type":"img","content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FtJDHXwt3UKGH5tURKdIN%2Fbarangaroo%20house%201.jpeg?alt=media&token=14df1315-e37a-469d-ab14-93d99a165391"},{"type":"img","content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FtJDHXwt3UKGH5tURKdIN%2Fbarangaroo%20house%203.jpeg?alt=media&token=d340d12e-1d8d-45d4-b37c-9672725043d9"},{"type":"link","title":"House Bar Drinks","content":"https://www.barangaroohouse.com.au/house-bar-drinks"},{"type":"link","title":"Smoke Cocktails","content":"https://www.barangaroohouse.com.au/smoke-cocktails"},{"type":"text","content":"Welcome, everyone, to our next exciting stop!

This certainly makes it a must-visit spot on our tour doesn't it?\n\nAs we stand here, take a moment to admire the unique design of Barangaroo House. Fashioned like a trio of nesting bowls, it's an architectural marvel that harmoniously combines opulence with eco-conscious sensibilities. Notice the gorgeous, charred timber exterior, a design element that symbolizes the iconic Australian campfire. I never tire of its sight!\n\nJust look around us at the lush greenery—over 10,000 plants draping the building, a visual treat indeed. Can you guess why they’re there? Well, they're not just for aesthetics! This living infrastructure plays a crucial part in neutralizing the carbon footprint of Barangaroo House—an impressive commitment to leave a positive environmental impact.\n\nLet's engage with our senses while we're here. Close your eyes for a moment, and let the faint aroma of sizzling Australian cuisine wafting from the kitchen whet your appetite. Hear that? That's the subtle rhythm of Sydney, a city that never sleeps, punctuated by the serene swath of the waterfront.\n\nNow, here's a little task for you - spot the outdoor terrace bar, or what we locals lovingly call ‘The House Bar’.

Three levels of culinary excellence, including the highly acclaimed ‘Smoke’, the rooftop bar that serves the best smoked cocktails.

The Cutaway is not just another stop on our tour; it's an immersive experience.\n\nThis is not just an aesthetically appealing architectural feature. It serves a purpose. You see, during the construction of Barangaroo Reserve, sandstone was extracted right from this site to shape the naturalistic headland. This challenging process led to the creation of the Cutaway, adding a distinctive landmark to Darling Harbour's vivid landscape.\n\nIf these walls could talk, they'd tell you tales of awe-inspiring public art installations, historical exhibitions, and cultural events. And it's no wonder, as this unique space can house a crowd of up to 5,000 people!\n\nRight under your feet, you can see the gentle hush of natural landscape subtly blending into steel and concrete's distant hum—an arresting exploration of urban and natural themes. It's this melodious harmony that makes the Cutaway a fascinating peek into Sydney's commitment to sustainable and ecological urban planning.\n\nNow, I would urge you to take a moment to simply stand in the center of this cavernous space.

It's moments like these that make the Cutaway a memory you'll cherish from our journey.\n\nDid you know that the Cutaway's roof is laden with extensive vegetation? Yes!

But here's a thought to ponder - did you know this is one of the world's oldest surviving electrically operated swingspan bridges? It's a living, moving monument to a time when steamships ruled Darling Harbour. Marvels in motion, wouldn't you agree?\n\nAs we continue our \"Exploring Darling Harbour and Barangaroo with Novotel Darling Harbour\" tour, we find ourselves near this iconic bridge that beautifully connects the bustling Western Distributor on the south to the Pyrmont area on the north. Pyrmont Bridge isn't just a marvel of engineering, it also narrates stories from the past.\n\nAnd speaking of stories...it's time for a little tale. Picture this. The late 1800s, architects and engineers battling against time and tides to create a bridge that would usher in a new era of progressive advancement for Sydney. The bridge had to pivot, or \"swing,\" to allow tall ships passage, a true feat of engineering at that time. Today, we might interpret the design as simple, but back then, it was innovative on an epic scale.\n\nNow observe the surroundings, vast waters, city skylines, boats passing by. Can you imagine the hustle and bustle when freight ships used to pass through here daily, carrying goods and passengers? Task of the day, my wonderful group – take in the view and try to recreate that lively scenario in your minds. See this bridge as it was during its architectural infancy - an exciting engineering experiment and a promising lifeline for the city's commercial interests.\n\nHere's a little gem for you, tucked away in history - The Pyrmont Bridge was the venue for Australia’s first recorded automobile race. This visually stunning bridge has layers of engaging history visitors casually pass by, but for history enthusiasts, it is an open book with stories of a bygone era.\n\nLook around us, my friends, spot the Pyrmont footpath that seems ordinary, isn't it? But did you know that before our sophisticated modern-day GPS, four ground-level plaques set in the eastern footpath provided a basic map of the solar system?
