Took the ferry from Circular Quay with ease as locals are friendly! Took a stroll as there are many restaurants to decide and a shopping mall to explore. Definitely a great place to have a good meal and walk back to the city.

Greatly enjoyed the walk around the harbor. Lots of restaurants and shops. A short walk from the Queen Victoria Building. Close to the conference center.

Darling Harbour is great for eateries and atmosphere. Various ferries run from this location. You can talk a stroll over the bridge to the Maritime Museum.

If you are in Sydney you must visit Darling Harbour if not for the scenic beauty then for the myriad of eating places! Expensive eating on the Eastern side and cheaper eats on the Western side. Perfect location for a beer in the late afternoon.

This place is beautiful. Every where you look is something interesting, stylish and attractive. The thought that has been put into design is clear and attractions, restaurants and shops are all worth visiting. Don't visit Sydney and miss out this beautiful harbour.

You can never get enough of Sydney. The ferries pass all the photographic iconic places thus being one. Over the years, I have done the tour, attended a concert, and just plain taken pictures, a must see.

This place is great. Good shopping, lots of restaurants and bars. Also great for walking around. Lots of tourists but didn’t seem as crowded as Sydney Harbour. Shopping has better prices on touristy items.

I agree with first response, you can walk (30-40) min but take the ferry for the best views of the bridge. The bridge is adjacent to central Quay, darling harbour is further inland and bridge is not visible from there.
