Worth a quick look but don't expect to be blown away, especially if you've walked here from the Botanic Gardens. Close to the Navy wharf so you can get to see a few ships close up. Plenty of restaurants to try along the wharf front.

If you have run out of options of things to do in Sydney, then perhaps try visiting Woolloomooloo. There are some food options available, however, I don't particularly recommend visiting the area.

I recently walked here on a trip past the Botanic Gardens. Although it would be a really lovely area in which to live (although ultra expensive!), for a tourist visit I found it rather boring. The view from other parts on the walk were far superior. I didn't stop to eat or do anything really and doubt I'd ever go... More

Went to the wharf for the restaurant, Manta, with outdoor seating. The people watching during the meal was great, as was the meal. Much better people watching than at the opera house.

What a wonderful place this was. Naval ships, new shopping areas and accommodation and magnificent views of the harbour, a gorgeous sunny day - what more could one want.

US Navy was in town for R & R at Naval Yards. Always Australian ships to look at. Harry De Wheels is an institution and worth getting a bite to eat. Only a few other places to dine and wine but very pleasant.

Quite an interesting part of town and some of the shopping areas are maze-like but I wouldn't bother going back. Nothing special here I'm afraid.

Good place to go for a feed , I personally like Kingsleys. Suggest you book it can get busy. There is parking near by you have to pay but is reasonable on a weeken.

I LOVED SYDNEY!!!!!! Manly beach, however, is terrible. Only locals should EVER go there!!! Go to Bondi or Bronte instead, they are magic.

This part of Sydney is often forgotten but it is fabulous with great restaurant choices and one of the best luxury hotels we have stayed in before - Blue Sydney which is built into the old Woolloomooloo finger wharf itself. What a great hotel experience that was and the wharf is giant in proportions and has a fascinating history. There... More
