Barangaroo Reserve, Sydneys new headland park is now open. The best way to get there is on foot, by cycle or using public transport.
Barangaroo is the most important reinvention of Sydneys historic centre for decades. The precinct is a globally significant, 22-hectare, $6+ billion waterfront renewal project that redefines the western edge of Sydney Harbour. It will be a lasting legacy of 21st Century urban renewal for future generations.
Once finished in 2022, half of Barangaroo will be public space, encompassing a continuous 2km waterfront walkway, new parks, plazas and coves - all connected to the central business district and wider Sydney through new transport links, including a ferry hub and a Metro station.
Supporting more than 24,000 permanent jobs and providing a home to 3,500 residents, Barangaroo will contribute an estimated $2 billion every year to the NSW economy.
The combination of international design excellence, financial and professional services, sustainability and public space will make Barangaroo an exciting new destination for Sydneysiders and visitors alike.
WHEN IT WILL HAPPEN
Sydneys spectacular new six-hectare Harbour park, Barangaroo Reserve sits on the re-created headland at the northern end of the precinct. Its opening returns this part of Sydney, the old waterfront district, to the public for the first time in more than 100 years.
In the South, the Streets of Barangaroo are open anchor tenant, Westpac, has taken occupancy of the first major commercial tower (T2). Exciting retail developments are planning, including a 10-week pop-up restaurant by world-renowned Noma chef, Rene Redzepi.
This marks the start of a bold expansion of the city with Barangaroos first waterfront residential buildings opening in late 2015 and the second (T3) and third (T1) commercial office towers opening in 2016 and 2017 respectively. From October 2015, pop-up restaurants and cafes will appear along Wulugul Walk just north of King Street Wharf.
Development planning continues in other areas of Barangaroo South, including the proposed Crown Sydney Hotel Resort, the three residential towers designed by Renzo Piano, the acclaimed Italian architect, and a public park.
