Time Out Sydney

Darling Harbour is Sydney CBD tourism central featuring numerous restaurants, bars, the IMAX cinema, Cockle Bay Wharf and the starting point for boat tours and water taxis.

Since its refurbishment, Darling Harbour is more family friendly than ever before: the classic carousel is still in place, as are the train tours up and down the wharves, but it now also boasts a fantastic mega-playground that'll keep kids (and probably most adults) entertained for literally hours.
