For a tourist area there are plenty of non-corny things for locals to do too. Also nicely free to people hawker giant ballons or tourist bobbles along the walk way. The Harbourside mall is a nice alternative to the somewhat chaotic Paddy's Market. The restaurants are overpriced but the open air food court is a great bet for families or traveling groups. View + free seating + decently priced and varied food selection. IMAX theater looks good too and the walk to the Chinese garden is a fun one for the kiddos. chinta ria, meat & wine as well as zafraan are all good eateries around the area

Darling Harbour is beautiful and has a lot of great restaurants and shopping; however, I felt like a lot of the attractions were unreasonably overpriced simply because of their location in the harbor. I would definitely take the time to walk through this area, but I wouldn't recommend eating or drinking here unless you want to spend a lot of money.

Adjoining Sydney's Chinatown (not as exciting as some other worldwide Chinatowns, but still a great place to eat), the horrifically touristy environs of Darling Harbour are nonetheless lovely, particularly at night when the lights are out, or for visiting the pleasant Sydney Aquarium. Restaurants here tend towards the overpriced, but the atmosphere is great, and this southern finger of the massive Sydney Harbour is nice enough that you're willing to forgive its faults, at least for an hour or two.Recommended for:Nightlife Lovers

Good place to bring your family if you have kids. Shops and restaurants, lots of outdoor stuff. But better for summer and usually pretty busy. Sometimes they have fire works shows here for occasions like Australia Day, so check their website before you go.

Unfortunately I was here in winter with the wrong clothing. At night it got pretty cold which ruined my night out while sampling all of its bars. If it had been during summer it would get 5 stars.

Darling Harbour is an excellent place to spend your evening. We went and had fireworks to accompany the dinner we had at a restaurant in the harbour. There are shops and restaurants that line the harbour. Plenty of places to see and visit.
