“A Fantastic Playground!”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Darling Harbour is constantly evolving. It always has plenty on for adults and kids alike. The most recent edition to open was a new outdoor playground for kids. It offers a great location for kids to let loose for a couple of hours, but unfortunately, there aren't many places for parents to sit, dine or drink while the kids play.

“Awesome!!”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

This is a wonderful place to walk around and wonderful restaurants. We out every day and it was great just being able to walk from our apratment down onto the harbour at night. We had some wonderful meals and if you are lucky enough to get there before 7pm most of the restaurants have $30 meal deals for dinner. Great!

“Touristy, but does have restaurants surrounding it”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Nice harbour to walk or stroll with plenty of restaurants and tourist traps. I went to the Meat and Wine company to try to kangaroo steak and it was delicious and worth it. Other attractions are nearby, but I heard from my friend that the Aquarium was a waste of time and money as they weren't much to see.

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”
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.
