We have not been to Sydney for several years and could not recognise Darling Harbour. However we loved the changes and enjoyed the walk from where we got off the ferry to the Chinese Gardens. It was well worth going into these gardens which we thorougly enjoyed. We have a very similar tourist attraction in our home city of Dunedin, NZ, but the Sydney gardens are much larger. When visiting Sydney, it is a must to spend some time walking around at Darling Harbour.
