Barangaroo Reserve is Sydney’s newest harbour foreshore park. One of the city’s oldest industrial sites and a former concrete container terminal has been transformed into a spectacular, six-hectare headland open space for Sydneysiders and visitors alike to enjoy. The reserve is car-free and the perfect spot for a walk, picnic or cycle, and dogs are welcome when on lead. Climb up to Stargazer Lawn for the best views across the gardens and into the harbour or follow the Wulugul Walk, which links Walsh Bay and Darling Harbour and runs through the reserve.
More than 75,000 native trees and shrubs have been planted, replicating the foliage that would have been on this site prior to European colonisation. Native bee colonies have also been introduced to help pollinate the native plant species. Join one of the regular Aboriginal Cultural Tours to learn more about these plants as well as the site’s significance to the local Indigenous population. Kids will love the Bush Buji experience, where they will learn about the land, hear stories and sing songs.
You can even take a dip in the harbour at the new swimming area that opened in Marrinawi Cove in early 2023. This sheltered spot is lined with sandstone steps and enclosed with safety netting.
