Cockle Bay Wharf Pedal Boats
Cruise around Darling Harbour in an old-school pedal boat this summer.
Many of us have had a first date on an old-school pedal boat, holding hands and having mundane conversations about the weather. And now you can relive that (but with better chat) when the recognisable boats return to Cockle Bay this summer.
From January 4–28, you'll be able to hire one of the leg-powered vehicles for $30 a pop, which'll get you a whole 30 minutes on the water. If you think half-an-hour in the blistering Sydney sun sounds like a recipe for sunburn, you'd be right, but, thankfully, the boats come equipped with a shade to keep you cool.
The pedal boats fit up to four people (so you can bring your mates or plan a double date) and you do have to wear a life jacket while cruising on Darling Harbour. You can't book online, and have to just rock up and hope that's one free, but if you do need to wait, there are plenty of places to eat and drink on the Wharf.
Cockle Bay Wharf Pedal Boats are available from 11am–8.30pm daily.
