Barangaroo

Short description

Barangaroo was once the working heart of the city, the site of a busy maritime port, wharves and industrial warehouses. Today, it’s the place Sydney comes to play, home to the glittering Crown Sydney, dozens of waterfront restaurants, swish boutiques and busy bars.

Exchange Place and Wulugul Walk
Barangaroo NSW 2000
Australia

Follow an illuminated trail of installations that will take you through intimate laneways, along the picturesque Wulugul Walk (which is part of a stunning 11km walk that winds its way around Sydney Harbour from Woolloomooloo to the Anzac Bridge) into a foodies' paradise and the stunning natural surrounds of Barangaroo Reserve.

It’s also a place to connect with Sydney’s Indigenous history. In fact, the area is named after a powerful Cammeraygal woman who was well-known to early settlers and married to Bennelong. The Gadigal people have used the area to catch fish and collect shellfish for at least 6,000 years and Barangaroo Reserve celebrates this unbroken connection. There are works by First Nations artists, more than 75,000 indigenous plants and regular cultural tours run by Indigenous guides. It will give you a new perspective on this ancient piece of the harbour foreshore.

When Vivid Sydney lights up Barangaroo it becomes a feast for the senses. You’ll find installations that transform the precinct into a rainbow of light and energy at Exchange Square, along Wulugul Walk and at Barangaroo Reserve.


How to get there: Barangaroo is just a five-minute walk from Wynyard Station through an underground tunnel. You can also catch a bus to King Street Wharf. If you prefer to arrive by water, ferries run to Barangaroo Wharf from Circular Quay and Parramatta.
