Often referred to as the Finger Wharf, it may come as a surprise that Woolloomooloo Wharf actually no longer serves as a wharf. It has now transformed into a bustling hub of restaurants and accommodation home to some of Sydney's favourite culinary delights including Otto and China Doll, which showcase stunning views of Sydney's dramatic skyscrapers.
The wharf's timber structure was built in 1915 and functioned for 70 years as an outlet for exporting wool. It was previously used for troop deployment in the World Wars and also as a disembarking point for new migrants in Australia. Eventually, due to air travel, the wharf became redundant, and it remained empty. The wharf eventually was redeveloped into a public space that now houses a hotel, many restaurants, 345 luxury residential apartments, along with retail stores and a 63 berth boating marina.
Take a wander through, and you will see the history of the wharf with relics left in place and glass panels etched with a timeline of its history along the length of the building. Considered to be the largest timber structure in the Southern Hemisphere it is now identified as an iconic destination in Sydney.
Experience the incredible history of Woolloomooloo Wharf and dine at some of Sydney's most distinguished restaurants, or take a wander along the marina and revel in the incredible views. However you choose to experience the wharf, why not see for yourself what all the fuss is about?
