If you’re looking for a a lovely afternoon and evening out, you can’t go past a visit to Sydney’s Darling Harbour and Cockle Bay Wharf. Here you can sip a spritzer at sunset, dine at one of their many venues and enjoy waterfront entertainment such as at Sydney’s first floating cinema, Mov’in Boat.
There’s plenty of great dining establishments from Baia the Italian to Blackbird cafe or even a dessert at Lindt Cafe. This iconic dining destination meets all criteria with a range of cuisines well as providing an alfresco experience by the water.
For our visit, we ate at Adria Bar and Restaurant, a Mediterranean inspired menu featuring seafood, pastas, meat or salads and plenty of refreshing drinks.
We enjoyed scallops, lamb souvlaki, fattoush salad and some amazing barramundi, all fresh and healthy, served super efficiently.
We loved their range of cocktails and watched the sunset with an Aperol Spritz and Mojito.
Such as lovely way to spend the afternoon. We can recommend Cockle Bay Wharf as the perfect pre-theatre dining destination to enjoy a meal before sitting down to a movie at the floating cinema.
For something a little different, “Mov’in Boat” is certainly a cool experience. It is essentially a spectacular 1000 sqm floating platform showcasing movies in the open air, with spectators watching from the floating bed, row boat or even their own private boats.
Screenings take place from Tuesday’s – Sundays and take your pick of movies; whether it be a romantic comedy, old classic, family or blockbuster on a 4K quality screen.
Watch the movie from the comfort of a bed with a big cushions at $99.90 for two people, complete with a bedside table for you to put your food and drinks. You can even take your own yacht in (of course if you’re blessed enough to have your own!) for a fee $49.90 per boat. This is limited to 15 a night. Even a row boat with tailored comfy seats is an option for the film spectating. Hire a row boat for $119.90 (up to four people -2 adults and 2 kids).
So why not grab a bunch of friends, head into Cockle Bay Wharf for food, fun and films!
