Many local restaurants of assorted food styles are available. Enjoy the view across the bay, watch the fireworks or take a restaurant crawl. You can even catch a water taxi around to Circular Quay which is well worth the cost.

Was visiting for business and stayed in hotel right near the Harbor. Harbor cruises leave from here, many restaurants to choose from plus the aquarium and wildlife center. Enjoyable to just walk around.

You can walk but will take around 30 mins but the best way is toget the ferry to circular quay from Darling harbour, you then pass under the bridge.

There is a few bar restaurants along Darling Harbour, including Hard Rock Cafe. We went there and it was very nice.
