Darling Harbour never fails to delight no matter how many times you visit. The views are amazing and are relaxing after a long days work. Don't miss the many breweries which offer fresh beer. Best time to visit is between 5 and 7 pm
A great place to hangout with anybody, anytime of the day and 365 days. Been to darling harbour for a Xmas party and it was the most happening place with loads of pubs and music till late night.
