Pyrmont contained a mineral spring of cold water bubbling out of a rock and was thus named for a similar natural spring in Bad Pyrmont, close to Hanover, Germany. The area was also the site of the first Presbyterian Church in the colony, built in 1864 and situated in Mount Street. The congregation eventually outgrew the premises and had to move to a new church at Quarry Street, Ultimo.

The Star City Casino dominates the Darling Harbour waterfront of Pyrmont and the Sydney Fish Market is located on Blackwattle Bay.

Pyrmont is home to the headquarters of several corporations including Vodafone and Nokia Australia, the Network Ten studios, the Seven Network production studios,, radio stations Nova 96.9 Vega 95.3,2 GB and 2SM.

Jackson's Landing is a residential and commercial property development located on the northern part of the peninsula.
