We came across the Woolloomooloo Wharf (also called the Finger Wharf) after going past the nearby navy ships and headquarters (HMAS Kuttabul) and heading towards the city. On the first floor it’s mainly residential apartments (they would have great views being right on the water’s edge) and on the ground level there are various restaurants which are dotted along the...

Woolloomooloo Wharf or Finger Wharf (Woolloomooloo is way more fun to say though) is a fashionable area with hotels, shopping and apartment living. We visited a friend of ours in the area last week as part of our around Australia trip that has only just begun. The wharf itself has a very interesting history being the longest timbered-piled wharf in... More

Went here by accident as part of a long walk. The day was very hot so take plenty of water if you go there. There really isn't allot to see here and is probably more popular with the locals who live here and not the tourists although there are many restaurants along the warf.

The wharf used to be used for shipping wool. Wow, has it come up in the world. It has a string of first rate restaurants facing the Sydney skyline featuring amazing sunsets. Our favorite is China Doll. It features a trendy hotel, a yacht harbour, and high end flats. We especially enjoy the wonderful sculptures dotted around the place.

A hidden gem that l would recommend on any walk from Kings Cross to the Opera House. It has the added bonus of a world famous pie and mushy peas diner and a architectually classic English style pub at the entrance to the park.

Walked from the Central Business District to Woolloomooloo throughly recommended and then Woolloomooloo is beautiful in its own right and has loads of bars and restaurants to choose from. I wish I'd stayed in this area rather than CBD as its still close enough to the city.

Beautiful part of Sydney with a really nice vibe to it. Well worth coming here to either look at the huge navy ships or to eat on the wharf

We swung by here after going to the Botanical Gardens. Amazing example of how buildings can be restored and re-purposed, the UK could learn a thing or two here.

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...
