Darling Harbour, Sydney Reviews

  • Nice place to hang around. Great food choices and great for walking around. Toilets are clean, atmosphere is great, barangaroo is close by. Highly recommend to stay here for dinner or the afternoon. Also plenty of kids activities such as playgrounds and waterworks.

  • Darling Harbour is vibrant and exciting. The restaurants are plentiful and affordable. Our favorite spot was Darling Quarter, which has the best playground I've ever experienced. Our 7 year old was in heaven. The climbing structures are impressive, but the most fun are the water features. Kids can move dams and different gadgets to move water around the huge installation. Dress them in a bathing suit so they can really enjoy it!

  • Well worth going to see on a warm summer night. Great choice of restaurants, it's a nice walk around the place. It maybe a little pricy for some but for a special night out I am sure most people will enjoy. Average price for a meal is around $30 per person. Fireworks every Saturday night at 8.30pm which is always good and goes for about 8 minutes.

  • Lots to watch. Regular festivals and fireworks. Most food options are chain restaurants (hard Rock cafe, grilled etc) amazing dance community who jam next to the ICC (convention Centre) most nights of the week from about 8pm. Tram close by. Lots of ferries and recently a giant puppet show! I recommend coming to enjoy the sights and then walking up to China town for 🍴 dinner.

  • Slightly over over developed entertainment hub with not a lot of gritty character. But if you like being around a lot of people and have a selection of mid-range quality food and beverages then this might be your go. Great views of the city sky line and close to the Casino. There are probably more interesting places to go.
