East Darling Harbour is located on the northwestern edge of the Sydney Central Business district in Australia.

The site area is 22 hectares with a shoreline frontage of 1.4 kilometres.

*physically reconnect to its surroundings
*retain its function as a harbour/passenger port
*meet the community's expectations for shoreline open space as part of the city
*provide appropriate scale of built form consistent with its environment and harbour planning policy
*interpret the site's historical development

The competition is open to registered architects, landscape architects, and urban planners, and the fee is AUD $250.
The state government of New South Wales will engage the winning entrant to guide the future development of the site. In Stage One, up to five finalists will receive AUD $50,000. The winner will receive AUD $100,000 in Stage Two of the competition.
