Darling Harbour Live and ICC Sydney

Infrastructure NSW is managing the delivery of the $3.4 billion 20 hectare transformation of Darling Harbour into a world class convention, exhibition and entertainment destination.

The NSW Government has partnered with the private sector for the redevelopment that will provide Sydney with:

  • Australia’s premier integrated convention, exhibition and events destination known as the International Convention Centre Sydney, or ICC Sydney
  • Reinvigorated public spaces
  • A luxury hotel with around 600 rooms and a new city neighbourhood.

The new state of the art facilities will generate $200 million annual economic benefit for the NSW economy. Across the precinct, the project has created about 3,700 jobs during construction and a further 4,000 jobs on completion.

Construction completion

The project has entered an exciting new phase with the completion of construction on 19 September. This is being followed by a three operational readiness phase in preparation of the official opening in December 2016.

The NSW Government is delivering the project in partnership with the private sector to allow faster delivery of the convention, exhibition and entertainment facilities, draw upon global industry expertise, foster innovation, and achieve value for money for the people of NSW. Design excellence, environmental sustainability and community engagement has been central to the project every step of the way.

Darling Harbour and the new convention and exhibition centre will remain in public ownership through Property NSW.
