Darling Harbour was originally part of the commercial port of Sydney, including the Darling Harbour Railway Goods Yard. By the 1980s it was not used anymore and had become a grimy and moribund industrial docks area. The local state government then decided to pump millions of dollars into the area as part of the 1988 Bicentenary Project. Nowadays Darling Harbour comprises the Tumbalong park, the Sydney Convention centre, a commercial area consisting of the Harbourside shopping centre and many hotels, a marina and a number of museums, a zoo and the Sydney Acquarium.
