  • Darling Harbour is currently very disappointing. The venue has obviously been affected by COVID restrictions but the construction work, closed venues do not make it a very welcoming place at this...

  • It was amazing. The people performing there were incredibly talented. The restaurants too. There were SO MANY PEOPLE, yet the food only took like 10 minutes to arrive. And the waiters were so sweet too. I enjoyed it
  • Good open air experience, perhaps diminished by the seemingly perpetual construction activity. Some fantastic features (the swirling water pool, kids play area) and water views. More visible signage for amenities would be useful.
