Can be incredibly busy, but plenty of dining choices, not particularly cheap and very tourist oriented.

Fantastic place to visit especially during vivid Sydney where the place is alight with colour. There are loads of restaurants in the area. Excellent place to visit day and night.

Great place to enjoy a glass or two. Catching the last sun rays of the day whilst people watching. The chill zone of choice. Ideal place to meet for an end of day tonic.

We visited here at night while attending Vivid Sydney at Darling Harbour. There are lots of dining options here. If you like wining and dining, this place may be for you.

This is a pleasant place to walk because of the dock and wate but there are some fairly average restaurants and the place is somewhat tacky and you can do better elsewhere in Sydney.

Took an evening walk after dinner and we were charmed by the view at the wharf. It's a great place to wind down and there's plenty of space for the children to run around freely. Good range of restaurants to choose from if you would...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
