We walked around the Harbour multiple times--early mornings, mid-days and in the evenings. Each gives you a different perspective of this beautiful, bustling harbor. We also enjoyed shopping and dining at the various venues surrounding the harbor. Highly recommended for families.

I had spent few weeks walking along this place in the afternoons while I was working at The Rocks and this place is amazing, with the walk underneath the Harbour bridge through to the opera House.
