You can pick from a diverse range of restaurants and clubs. Weekend evenings are crowded. Especially in summers. Dont miss this place if you are looking for a good grub.

A very high energy place at the end of Darling Harbor. Filled with eateries of all nationalities, nice atmosphere, and good walking along the wharf. I would not slight anyone there, so walk around and find a meal that meets your liking.

Very buzzy area with a relaxed and friendly feel to it. You would never go hungry here with the choice of so many restaurants and the prices seem to be very competitive. Enjoyed my walks around.

Visiting Darling Harbour and Cockle Bay Wharf are so worth it. As a tourist it is great to see the Opera House and the Rocks, etc. but a visit to Darling Harbour and Cockle Bay Wharf really is a 'must'. There is so much exciting new development going on and it will all make this area an even more vibrant... More

Beautiful, even when raining! The serenity is beautiful. My partner and I went to dinner at Criniti's and went for a walk afterwards around the wharf. The lights are beautiful and the Ferris wheel is nice to watch in action!

Because DH and I were staying at Novotel Darling Harbour, if we didnt stroll along this place there must be something wrong with us. We walked along the wharf almost every evening and every time we went there, there'd be lots of pictures to capture. One of our favourite places indeed and the variety of restaurants was just great.

A variety of restaurants to choose from on the waterfront. Plenty of specials on offer. Most of them offer a meal and beer or wine or a two course meal. Great food.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
