“Darling Harbour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

Lots to do and see. Great walk around to the harbour bridge and opera house. Many people used this path for their daily run.

“A tourist hub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

Great spot if you like life, always busy, lots of restaurants and cafes, the Maritime Museum is here, plus the Aquarium, plus the Imax Cinema, plus, plus, plus!! Heaps of accommodation, it is a real hub of Sydney, you can get there by ferry from Circular Quay or walk down from Sydney City if you are fit.

“A jewel in Sydney.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

Not that many years ago (i.e. WW2), this was the "red light" district of Sydney. By 2002, the area began to change and kept on improving ever since. It is clean, the walk around the harbour is very pleasant. Now studded with great restaurants, surrounded by magnificent office buildings, a shopping area and a new childrens water park the place is as attractive to children as to casual visitors, from honeymooners to retired folks. Simply a place suitable for all tastes and ages.
