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.

Visitors to Sydney must go here. It's part of Sydney's early wharf history and the scary part is that it was nearly demolished before (thankfully) it was saved, restored and re-birthed. Today, it's a well laid out piece of history with a modern hotel, exceptional restaurants (try China Doll), expensive yachts and up market apartments. For those interested in its... More

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...

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.
