Nice to be out again and smell the clean air surrounding the Darling Harbour. The restaurants are beaming and busy again after four months of lockdowns. more »
Darling Harbour never fails to delight no matter how many times you visit. The views are amazing and are relaxing after a long days work. Don't miss the many breweries which offer fresh beer. Best time to visit is between 5 and 7 pm
A great place to hangout with anybody, anytime of the day and 365 days. Been to darling harbour for a Xmas party and it was the most happening place with loads of pubs and music till late night. Visited again during Xmas break with family and kids, it was great with lot of options for shopping, play area, public water play areas.
