Very nice walking here, it's a former wharf now renewed with a nice hotel, apartments and restaurants, but still looking a wharf! Very close to here there is an harbour with military ships and the famous Harry's (since 1945 the best peas cake of Australia). On the west the Royal garden and on the South Pott's Point with many characteristic... More

My boyfriend and I kayaked from the wharf today. It's a neat place to check out the largest navel base in the area, a handful of large yachts and Russell Crowe's home (last one at the end of the wharf). Nearby, there are cute and historic looking local homes so if you are in the area walking through the nearby... More

What's not to love about this?! Sunshine, buzz of anticipated excitement. The hub of who's who and who may be next and who's been. It's that chaotic melting pot that makes up the character of "the wharf"

We were lucky enough to stay at the Ovolo Woolloomooloo, and spend five days on this beautiful wharf. There are great restaurants at all price points, the naval yard is fascinating to watch, and it's a great place to start a walk through the Botanical Garden on the way to Mrs Macquaries Chair and beyond to Circular Quay. Take advantage... More

Thank goodness this wharf was saved from being demolished given its rich history but this is gentrification taken to the extreme, only a few token glimpses into its past can be seen now with a high end boutique hotel, loft style apartments and bland restaurants the feature of the day. I guess it was the only way to save it,... More

I found the restaurant needed a refurb...... Old and dirty.. The oyster... Well can't even talk about, very ordinary The salmon.... Over cooked! The steak over done as well, not rare! It came with no vegetables... We had to purchase vegetables. Very disappointed!

Apparently, this is a highly regarded area associated with many celebrities, but if you take a picture and show to your friends, they'll probably mostly get excited about the name "Woolloomooloo". Or just say it loud and ask if anyone can spell it and watch the reaction.

A lovely spot that feels away from the huddle and bustle of the city. A long wharf where we saw a large navy ship towed out by tugs in the early evening. Beautiful boats to dream for were lined up along the way.

Visited the Woolloomooloo Wharf which was near Kings Cross, to catch up with friends over some drinks and light meal one evening. It was quite quiet and there were a few restaurants with fine dining along the wharf which appears to be quite popular with many people trickling in for dinner. You can see lots of fishes in the water,... More

This place is peace on earth! Lush! Plush! Without making you feel uneasy about it! I.e the Australian way! Not sure I would recommend for a family to stay there - a bit remote to key touristic areas and not very well connected by public transport (relatively) - but certainly for solo or couple travellers. Romantic! Lots of options to... More
