Tumbalong Park is a park in Darling Harbour, located in Sydney, Australia. The parkland was designed using native Australian foliage incorporated with fountains as an urban stream. The name "Tumbalong" is from Dharug as spoken by the Eora nation and means "place where seafood is found".[1]

The park is used as a venue for central Sydney events, including New Year's Eve and Australia Day celebrations. This site was used for the skydiving opening scene in 20th Century Fox's Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie.

A large children's playground area includes a water park containing 26 water jets, a big slide, jumbo swings, tangled web and a 10 metre high octanet jungle gym.
