Reviewed January 18, 2014

Full of places to eat at a variety of prices. Tourist hotspot so very busy and noisy, particularly as we were there during the pre-Christmas period

“Darling Harbour”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

It's simply a place to gravitate to, either to eat, to sit and watch the world go by, even take in a film at the IMAX or visit the Aquarium. PLenty to do and see her and a must visit venue if your first time to Sydney.

“Chilled place, lots of bars”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

Nice space with many restaurants, some better than others but worth a chilled walk around the marina.

“Saturday night in Darling Harbour”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

Darling Harbour is so much fun! A great activity for a Saturday night. It was packed when we visited in November. Already gearing up for Christmas, the atmosphere was festive. Many bars and restaurants, great views of Sydney harbor, with night boats coming and going. Also great place for kids for it offers a number of well planned out kiddie parks that looked really innovative and real crowd pleasers. thoroughly enjoyable evening.
