Visited at night on multiple occasions. Beautiful scenery on all sides of the harbour. Plenty of bars and restuarants whether you want fine dining, small bites or cheeky cocktails. Great atmosphere to walk through and plenty of colourful lights!

We had the whole morning to walk around Darling Harbour and its quite a treat on a sunny day. Very much worth a casual stroll with beautiful views from all points

Great day out for the family - Aquarium is excellent. Book online to get discounts either before you leave home or outside entry. Lots of new eateries and new ferry terminal at King Street Wharf are all really well planned.

If you want to visit Sydney make sure you have visited darling harbour at least once specially at nights and test very good restaurants at harbourside mall.

This area is ok, but not and special as I hoped, enjoyed many other areas more. Would put it down the list of must dos.

What a fun area of Sydney! Big variety of restaurants with beautiful views of the harbor. Can be a bit touristy, but still a fun area to walk around and have dinner.

It depends what your expecting but there are many better places in Sydney to invest your time in Darling Harbor is just another restaurant and shopping precinct go there if you have too but the Rocks will fill your appetite with similar offerings

The whole area is quite pretty. The harbour is great and just walking around is soothing. The large selection of restaurants makes it hard to choose, which is a good thing. Plenty to see.

I agree with first response, you can walk (30-40) min but take the ferry for the best views of the bridge. The bridge is adjacent to central Quay, darling harbour is further inland and bridge is not visible from there.
