NewQuay and Waterfront City
At the northern end of Docklands, the adjacent waterfront neighbourhoods of NewQuay and Waterfront City comprise high-rise apartments, offices, retail outlets, galleries, marinas and the bulk of Docklands’ bars and restaurants. The precinct is home to Wonderland Park, with a host of rides for kids, and the impressive new Icehouse, a world-class ice-sports and entertainment venue designed to resemble the fault line in a glacier. The Icehouse features a public skating rink with spectacular sound and lights, and a huge stadium for events such as ice hockey and figure skating. 1300 756 699; open daily; session times and events www.icehouse.com.au.
The new Harbour Town shopping centre is home to a large range of brand outlets and fashion stores, while trash-and treasure lovers will want to check out the weekly Sunday Market (10am–5pm).
