Nice submarine in view. Good place for photos-taking (laughs) and admiring the scenic place. Convenient spot for tourists visit as well.

Very eye-catching even from Darling harbor. Even at the outside Magnificent sea vehicles are overwhelming so taking a tour of the ship is even more exciting. Lovely picture perfect scenes too!

Easily accessible by the ferry system. Beautiful waterfront location with free entry to a lot of the displays. We walked around the boats displayed but because of time didn't pay the fee to enter.

Hi, If I purchase the "Big Ticket" passes for my family, you reckon we can spend the entire day there? Or just half a day? I have 2 kids, aged 8 and 10 besides my wife and my mum. Need to know for planning purposes. Thanks.
