Woolloomooloo Wharf, Sydney

4.0
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.

  • Such a great spot, awesome restaurants, several pubs across the road, right next to Botanic Gardens and 10 min walk to the city. The Wharf has it all.  more »
  • The pool is built on the Bay. Very nice view of the Woolloomooloo Wharf and ships of the Australian army. Basin filled with seawater heated and protected by a wind breaker. Many people come to train. The water lines are reserved by swimming speed. At the Center for the fastest swimmers until the slower along the basin.

Where to stay in Sydney

Sydney offers visitors hundreds of lodging options in its central area, with choices suitable for most budgets. As expected in a major tourist destination, harbor views play a major role in determining room prices. Expect to pay more for ocean-view suites, especially if you visit at the peak of the tourist season or around big city events. If you don't need to stay in the center of Sydney, consider budget-friendly hotels near the airport, or look for smaller roadside motels in the city's South West neighborhood.
