A great Sydney eating spot

this redeveloped old wharf area has many fine restaurants and can be crowded so better to book prior but well worth visiting on a trip to Sydney especially at lunchtime

Wolloomooloo Wharf was developted as luxury apartment. It is good to take a photo of Wooloomooloo Wharf from the park where Art Gallery of NSW is located. There are a lot of facy look big boats embarked at Wooloomooloo Wharf. This is an optimal place for Photo Background!

This is what a traveler goes to Sydney for, to look at the harbor and dine/drink on the water. Quite simply this strip has some of the best eateries in Sydney, and you'll pay for them! Great food, fine wines, couple of $100m worth of ocean going yacht's within 20m and a glassy harbor to gaze upon. This are is... More

'Woolloomooloo Wharf' or 'Cowper Wharf', not matter which wharf you look at it expect to be welcomed by some of Sydney's best restaurants, expensive yachts, a boutique hotel and private residential dwellings. The Wharf is worth a visit in my view as its a wonderful display of a modern wharf conversions into a simmering high end boutique hotel with a... More

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.
