  • It’s a nice quaint harbor for an afternoon stroll, especially when it is not too crowded. There are many restaurants to have a sit down meals. However, do check their reviews.

  • Best place to be. Zillion options for food and drinks. There is a beautiful park for kids. There is a big slide for kids there. If you enjoy skating you have a skating ring as well. And on Saturdays you have fire works in the evening 8:30pm.
  • Darling Harbour is a great location especially to view events like vivid. There are a few restaurants with glass wall facing the harbour from where you can get a good view. This place is easily accessible by public transport. If you prefer to drive, finding a parking space could be a challenge.
