Took a long stroll from Kings Cross back to CBD on a quiet Sunday afternoon, passed the Naval Dockyard and all of a sudden came across the wharf. Vibrant with locals enjoying upmarket food and drinks overlooking some stunning yachts and boats. Sat and had a coffee and felt very relaxed, Fabulous area and recommend a visit. Maybe the locals...

A converted shipping pier, it is located next to Sydney's Naval Dockyard. Containing marinas, upscale hotel and an eclectic mix of restaurants and bars this is a fabulous area to just stroll or stop for lunch or dinner. It can get very busy, so if visiting at peak times to eat, best make a reservation.

I asked the waiter if the pasta dish was a reasonable portion. He said it's very good portion. When it was served, well it would make a midget hungry. Not impressed at all n left hungry.

I used to live on the wharf when on a work assignment from the U.S. and absolutely loved the wharf and walking home every night. When back visiting, I had to stop by again for the nostalgia of it and to reminisce about the days spent here. It is a truly unique place in the city and it magnificent inside.... More

On a nice day it's all good place for a stroll. It's at the back on The Domain (go past the museum and down the steps). A few fancy looking places for food and a drink & some posh boats. I wouldn't go out of your way to go there mind.

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 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

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.
