Madame Tussauds Sydney features an all-star cast of the world’s best known personalities and heroes, including A-list celebrities, sports heroes, rock legends, world leaders and an array of home-grown Australian legends. Madame Tussauds Sydney is a new breed of attraction, with interactivity at the heart of the experience. Get up close, touch and even hug the figures. You can also grab the props to make your photos even more authentic!With a fascinating history dating back to the Paris of 1770, Madame Tussauds is quite literally a labour of love spanning 200 years of expertise and research. Each wax figure is crafted with unprecedented skill, artistry and accuracy. It takes over 800 hours of work and 20 artists to make just one wax figure.Madame Tussauds Sydney is the thirteenth Madame Tussauds attraction opened worldwide and the fifth of its kind in the Asia Pacific region.

Is full of asian tourists, i would say up to 80-90%, is very laud and i would not go a second time. So shortly... More

Three of the attractions- Sae life aquarium, wild life zoo and Madam Tussads museum are located in the same premises and all three can be completed in a few hours depending upon your pace and interests.

We had tickets for Madame Tussauds included in a tourist pack so thought we may as well use them. It took us about 15 minutes to walk around. Not too impressed I'm afraid. I'm glad I hadn't paid to go in.

Worth a visit. The wax figures look so real and there are plenty of dress up props to enhance your photo shots. Upon arrival 3 photos are taken of you. They are put into a memento folder which can be purchased when exiting for $30.

Staying in Darling Harbour

Neighbourhood Profile
Darling Harbour
The original docklands of Darling Harbour have been transformed into a tourist mecca with entertainment for the whole family. Cockle Bay Wharf offers dining options from budget to upscale and million dollar views of the harbour. Young crowds gather on weekends for nightlife that ranges from salsa clubs to Dj’s. Families can visit the Chinese Gardens of Friendship or the Sydney Aquarium, one of the largest in the world. The Sydney Maritime Museum and the IMAX theatre are also popular attractions. The Harbourside Shopping Centre is a site unto itself, with hundreds of shops, restaurants and bars. On Saturdays in the summer, the city puts on a spectacular fireworks show along the harbour's shore and there are plenty of other free events during the year - Darling Harbour Fiesta, VIVID’s light installations and the Sydney Festival, just to name a few.
