Mice Net : February 2009
10 With 10 venues and over 100 function spaces it figures to use Sydney Olympic Park Sydney’s original jet boat company. Harbour Jet is well-suited to group experiences and will certainly shake off any jetlag that newly arrived visitors to Sydney may be experiencing. Visit www. harbourjet.com for further details. Wild Sydney There’s no shortage of natural attractions in Sydney which is especially appealing for those conference delegates who might have brought their families along. Taronga Zoo (www. tarongazoo.com.au) continues to impress first-time visitors and repeat visitors with what appears to be its constantly upgrading facilities, experiences, shows and attractions. Visitors can take a bus to the zoo, however, if they’re city-based the best way to get there is to jump on a ferry at Circular Quay where you can purchase a combined zoo/ferry ticket. At Darling Harbour there are two offerings – Sydney Aquarium (www.sydneyaquarium. com.au) and Sydney Wildlife World (www.sydneywildlifeworld. com.au). At each of these venues visitors can explore Australia’s rich and diverse aquatic life (at the aquarium), and some of Australia’s most unique animals (Wildlife World). Each of these venues cater wonderfully well to groups with Taronga Zoo particularly having some exceptional event spaces. Museums aplenty The Powerhouse Museum (www.powerhousemuseum.com) near Darling Harbour has hands-on attractions and special exhibits that suit families or individuals. Nearby is the Australian National Maritime Museum (www.anmm.gov.au) which offers an abundance of nautically-inspired exhibits and displays. Back in The Rocks and near to Circular Quay is The Museum of Contemporary Art which has what appears to be an ever- changing calendar of shows. Visit www.mca.com.au.
