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.

  • Atypical and perfectly maintained architecture, this cult place is rather small. We quickly made the turn, but the place does not lose its extraordinary charm. Must see at best perhaps by combining a walk from the Macquaries Point to then eat a Tiger at Harry's Café de Wheels.

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.
