Make it A Day at Harbourside

With Winter well and truly upon Sydney it can sometimes feel like you’re constantly stuck in doors, so our friends at Darling Harbour – Harbour Side Shopping Centre gave us a little insight to all the Fun Activities we can do at the Centre…

Where else can you fly a plane, race an F1 and enter a battlefield all on the one day? Get your thrill seeking friends together for an action-packed, adrenalin-pumping day and head down to Harbourside Shopping Centre.



Test your driving skills and race each other at the most advanced racing simulation centre. Drivers choose their own vehicle – F1, V8, GT3, Drift, Ferrari or Lamborghini, just to name a few. Racecentre is designed to give you the most realistic racing experience possible.

Flight Experience

Fly a commercial airliner with a real pilot instructing on a commercial grade jet simulator based on the Boeing 737. These simulators are used for pilot training and have been approved by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority in Australia.

M9 Laser Skirmish

Stand to attention, assume your combat identity and prepare to enter the battlefield. Get the adrenaline pumping with an all action laser experience – without the pain of paintball. Armed with advanced laser weapons and combat vests, manoeuvre through the shadowy world of the battleground pitting your wits against your enemy.

9D Action Cinemas

For a cinema experience like no other, head to 9D Action Cinemas. Your senses will be overwhelmed with the stimulating animated 3D movies with surround sound and coupled with “active motion” luxury seats while dramatic effects such as rain, fog, lightning, wind and snow really make you feel part of the action.


Once you’ve worked up an appetite, find your way to one of the many restaurants and cafés. With a wide range of different cuisines on offer, there’s something to suit every taste. Choose from the meaty menu at Hurricane’s Grill; take on the one metre pizza challenge at Criniti’s, get a taste of Arabia at Kazbah or a taste of the Orient at Dragon Boat.

We ended our massive day of entertainment at Hurricanes and it was a definite winner as we got to try their delicious calamari, sticky finger licking Ribs, prime cooked Beef & of so decadent Sticky Date cake with Caramel sauce.
