It depends what your expecting but there are many better places in Sydney to invest your time in Darling Harbor is just another restaurant and shopping precinct go there if you have too but the Rocks will fill your appetite with similar offerings

The whole area is quite pretty. The harbour is great and just walking around is soothing. The large selection of restaurants makes it hard to choose, which is a good thing. Plenty to see.

Nice spot to visit but expect to pay $25 on average for a mains on any of the licensed premises along the boardwalk. Access via ferry from Circular Quay takes approximately 35 minutes and costs $6. Take the ferry to Barangaroo and you are there....More

There are tons of fabulous restaurants, a great aquarium (expensive but worth it, kids will love it) and touristy shopping (ie, I wouldn't go shopping here, you can get better for less elsewhere.) It's a fun day out, requiring good weather - it's a lot...More

Have been visiting Darling Harbour for many years and now since the opening of the new precincts it is even better. The new food options are great and have given the area a bigger range of choices.

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.
