NSW Government as Stakeholder NSW Government to sell Darling Harbour land The cash-strapped NSW Government will raise capital by selling public land and assets in Darling Harbour, including the Sydney Aquarium, Sydney Wildlife World and IMAX. The Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority, which manages the assets, is calling for tenders for properties that include six major hotels, two of which are the Park Hyatt and the Shangri- La in the Rocks, plus the Harbourside Shopping Centre and Darling Walk at Cockle Bay. Opponents have accused the Government of sacrificing long- term revenue and the public interest for a quick return and said the sale would make the planning of events and development in the area much more difficult if private operators were involved.
