Walsh Bay

Enjoy world-class theatre and dance, discover heritage-listed wharves, and enjoy stylish bars and restaurants in Walsh Bay, on the edge of beautiful Sydney Harbour. A great way to get to Walsh Bay is to walk around the foreshore from The Rocks and under the impressive Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Alternatively, walk along the splendid Barangaroo foreshore for enchanting inner harbour views. Once crowded with wool for export, the finger wharves are now home to performance spaces, theatre and dance groups, restaurants and bars, and Pier One Sydney Harbour, a boutique hotel.

Sydney Theatre and Sydney Dance Company, Walsh Bay

Explore this lively arts area on self-guided Walsh Bay Walks. The acclaimed Sydney Theatre Company took up official residence in a restored wharf in the 1980s. Other arts companies include the Sydney Dance Company and Bangarra Dance Theatre, an internationally famous indigenous dance company.

Across the road from the historic wharves is the Roslyn Packer Theatre, which hosts outstanding drama and dance productions. Check out the exhilarating events calendar for all performances, shows and festivals in Walsh Bay. The popular week-long Sydney Writers Festival is held in May.

Walsh Bay piers at night

Choose from delightful food and wine experiences before and after performances. The Theatre Bar at the End of the Wharf offers superb harbour views. Or walk up a stairway to Millers Point, near Barangaroo Reserve, where the beautifully restored Hotel Palisade offers panoramic views.
