Sydney's Central Business district is an area of big business and tall skyscrapers. Many national and international companies have headquarters here. The area is flanked by the green spaces of the Royal Botanic Gardens and Hyde Park, with the Rocks and Circular Quay to the north and west.

Once a grubby industrial district, Darling Harbour, located southwest of the CBD, has now been transformed with the establishment of numerous museums, an entertainment complex and major exhibition and convention areas. The wide range of attractions and shopping centres make Darling Harbour a busy district where commerce, recreation, locals and tourists come together.
