Darling Harbour is seeing its biggest change in 25 years. Premier Mike Baird and Deputy Premier Andrew Stoner announced that construction has begun at Sydney’s world-class convention, exhibition and entertainment precinct. The new project is called the International Convention Centre (ICC) Sydney. This is a project that is part of a $2.5 billion redevelopment of Darling Harbour which will create thousands of jobs. Flamin' Galah Sydney Tours and Airport Transfers are keeping a close eye on this development, as we know how lucrative groups of people from companies around the World can be to the tourism industry in Sydney.
Mr Baird and Mr Stoner also announced a time-capsule will be buried on site, containing a range of artefacts, mementos, video, imagery and information about the history of Darling Harbour.
“Over the next two years an intensive construction schedule will be undertaken to deliver the project by the end of 2016,” Mr Baird said.
“Once completed the new world-class convention, exhibition and entertainment facilities will ensure Sydney remains the first choice in Australia and the Asia Pacific for the lucrative business events industry,” he said.
Deputy Premier Andrew Stoner said the transformation of Darling Harbour would pay respect to the area’s rich history.
“As we herald in the next chapter in Darling Harbour’s story, we have been mindful to keep the history of the precinct’s continual evolution alive for future generations by dedicating a time capsule,” Mr Stoner said.
