Woolloomooloo Wharf, Sydney

(95+ reviews on the web)
Historic Walking Area
Some of the finest restaurants in the city are located at Woolloomooloo Wharf, locally called the Finger Wharf. This historic structure is the longest timber wharf in the world, completed in 1915 to service the wool export business. During World War II the wharf served as a staging point for Australian troop deployment, and later it became a disembarking point for newly arrived immigrants. Today, the entire area is a redeveloped complex of trendy hotels, restaurants, and residential buildings. Visit the area for a gourmet meal at one of its popular alfresco restaurants, many of which feature views of the central business district's skyscrapers. Using our online itinerary creator, Sydney attractions like Woolloomooloo Wharf can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • If you want to have a romantic dinner or brunch and walk around the Wharf. This is the place, there is a lot of history about this place. It is worth adding it to your bucket list of thing to do in Sy...  more »
  • This old renovated Pier adjacent to the Royal Botanic Gardens, overlooking the Bay of Sydney as a finger jutting out into the sea. Although in itself does not present particular attractions, shows how antiquated construction ready for demolition, we can build an area of interest with a number of restaurants, maybe a little, but still vital. In some respects, it reminded me a bit the Oslo Harbor, with appropriate differences related to the landscape and the season.
