During our last visit in 2007 this wharf was just becoming the place to go since Russel Crowe had just bought a penthouse here. When we returned in 2010 we saw that this place was totally built up with high end bars, restaurants, pricey apartments and a boutique hotel. Large boats and pleasure vessels are docked along the wharf.
There is always a bustle of activity around here with joggers, people strolling, diners enjoying some alfresco dining and even a few reporters. We assumed a certain celebrity must be at home for the photographers to be hawking.... Much to Liz's dismay her Russel did not appear....
This harbouriside place, at the inner eastern suburb of Sydney is a less well-known place but we used to frequent this as a friend had a yatch anchored here in the early 90's. It is fabulous place and is not as crowded as in other harbour fronting suburbs. It is about 1.5 kilometres from the central business district and is easilyu accessible by public transport.
You will be amazed just watching the many yatchs/boats, etc. on the waters here! The views are just breathless so go have a look. Be warned prices for food and other things are expensive here so tourists don't be surprised. This is a place for the rich and famous I must add!
It is quite mouthful to pronounce "Woolloomooloo Wharf".
The houses surrounding the wharf are very beautiful and I guess they are worth millions of $.
We stayed in W Sydney which is located at Woolloomooloo Wharf.
Woolloomooloo, besides being a pain to spell, is home to Harry's Cafe de Wheels and is where many naval ships dock when they come into town. This is a very old area of Sydney and is a nice place to walk around.
When I was here, the aircraft carrier USS Constellation was docked here for a few days, along with some US and Canadian destroyers which accompanied it to Sydney. They were allowing people to board and take tours of the ship. This was an unexpected experience and added to my trip here, so if you are in Sydney I would stop at Woolloomooloo and take a walk here. You might see something unexpected like this.
