Sydney Harbour is a harbour located in Sydney, Australia. In Disney/Pixar's 2003 animated film, Finding Nemo, this is where Marlin and Dory go to find Nemo. Sydney Harbour was first seen (as a word) on the mask. Some of the inhabitants of the harbour include pelicans like Nigel, Horace, Zeke, Stuart, Ed, Lyle, Daniel and Gerald, various seagulls, and crabs.

Appearances

The Rescuers Down Under

When Wilbur flies Miss Bianca and Bernard into Australia, he flies over the harbour and passes the Sydney Opera House.

Finding Nemo

When Marlin and Dory arrive at the harbor after being shot out of the Whale's blowhole, they are suddenly swallowed whole by Gerald, who then threatens to eat them only to stopped by Nigel, another pelican who knows who Nemo is and his current whereabouts since he is constantly visiting Dr. Sherman's dentist office. When Nigel notices a flock of seagulls arriving to eat Marlin and Dory, he scoops them up and flies them to the dentist's office while luring the gulls into a sailboat, causing them to crash into the sails while the pelican flies through the empty space formed by the boat's mast.

When Marlin thinks that Dr. Sherman's niece Darla had killed Nemo by shaking his plastic bag (he's pretending to play dead to trick Dr. Sherman to flush him down the toilet), Nigel returns him and Dory to the harbor in grief, and the two to part ways, only for Nemo to emerge from a sewage pipe leading from the dentist's office and meet Dory, who then asks him to find Marlin. During their search, Dory is accidentally caught in a fishing net, causing Nemo to warn his father and prompting Dory and the other fish to escape the net by literally swimming down, causing the net to be weighed to the point that it literally gets torn apart, allowing the fish to swim free. Nemo's plan succeeds, and the three all return home together.

Cars 2

It can be briefly seen in the credits for Cars 2, where Lightning McQueen and Mater are shown climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Trivia

  • In Cars 2, part of the Sydney Opera House's podium is modelled on the front of a Holden FC.
  • In The Rescuers Down Under when Wilbur flies past the Opera House, the building is rendered in CGI. The Rescuers Down Under was the first Disney animated film to feature fully-rendered CGI backgrounds.
  • There was an abandoned Disney resort concept called Disney Wharf at Sydney Harbour which had to be in this particular location.
