Cockle Bay is the inner part of Darling Harbour, just to the west of the business district in Sydney. Originally called 'Long Bay' when Sydney was first founded in 1788, and used as a site for brick making, Cockle bay is now a popular entertainment focus within the city. Cockle Bay Wharf on one side, near to where this image was taken, is full of restaurants and bars, of which there are more in other parts of the bay. Ferries regularly run to jetties near this point to and from Circular Quay.
Other attractions around Cockle Bay include the Sydney IMAX Cinema just to the south. The Sydney Conference Centre and famous Harbourside buildings are on the western side of the bay. Prymont Bridge crosses the northern end of the bay, linking the Sydney Aquarium to the National Maritime Museum with both a footbridge and monorail. South of Cockle Bay, just under the overpass, are the Exhibition Centre and Tumbalong Park.
