Besides a spelling bee nightmare name, seems to be highly regarded by the locals

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

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.
