The Cork Bay Pier is on the edge of Darling Harbour, which is also a commercial area dominated by the seaport in Sydney. There are a lot of businesses and restaurants near the harbour. It’s a good thing to stroll around and have a meal at the harbour, you can come and visit
The core of Darling Harbour is one of the most lively corners of Sydney. On one side of the entire port area is the central business district with high-rise buildings, and on the other side is an entertainment area composed of huge shopping malls and movie theaters. Many restaurants and bars are located next to the pier, so the view is wide and the environment is great.
I loved Cockle Bay Wharf - which is surrounded by so many restaurants, cafes, and pubs, I hardly knew where to go. I finally settled for my traditional dinner at the Hard Rock at night, when I could look out over the still-glass reflection of the high-rise building lights in the water, then returned for an overpriced Starbucks in the morning, strolled leisurely along the promenade and took pictures, then enjoy a picnic lunch on one of the many benches and watched people go by for hours.
