  • What has happened to Darling Harbour? A lot of empty shops, no buzz, not busy at all. Fudge shop gone (one of the reasons we were visiting darling harbour in the first place), British lolly shop...

  • Darling Harbour is not a great place to visit and is tired and tacky and has little to offer other tnan a nice section of beautiful harbour that has been ruined. Time to start over.

  • The most adorable place to have lunch or dinner with family and friends. I would recommend you to bring your family here. The food very delicious and well served, clean, and chic. I really like the food. And the view is special. An interesting shopping centre in the middle of the city
  • A really romantic place to hang around or to have dinner. During daylight, the view is amazingly beautiful, but it's even more spectacular at night! They also have a park nearby, it is a great destination to simply have a picnic or to bring your kids and dogs to run around.
  • 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.
  • It was amazing. The people performing there were incredibly talented. The restaurants too. There were SO MANY PEOPLE, yet the food only took like 10 minutes to arrive. And the waiters were so sweet too. I enjoyed it
