Darling Harbour features a broad and welcoming promenade, many cafés, and the aquarium of course. Start the day with a nice walk along the promenade/bridge, have a cup of coffee and visit the (expensive) aquarium. Then walk across to The Rocks for more sightseeing.

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.
