We walked to this Wharf from our hotel and enjoyed the art display, the waterfront eateries, and the amazing views.

A really beautiful spot and so close to the city. Some really amazing and up market restaurants. The only issue is most bars are based outside without air conditioning, if the temperature is over 30 degrees the heat can get quite unbearable at lunchtimes.

Woolloomooloo wharf has been one of the best sites in Sydney for commercials and commercial photos, including fancy designer garments. There are many water view restaurants.

This wharf is so close to the heart of Sydney, yet it can feel difficult to get to. An old wharf fully refurbed and now housing hotel, apartments and plenty of nice restaurants. A long stone's throw to Mrs Macquarie's Chair on one side and Potts Point/ Kings Cross on the other.

Very nice walking here, it's a former wharf now renewed with a nice hotel, apartments and restaurants, but still looking a wharf! Very close to here there is an harbour with military ships and the famous Harry's (since 1945 the best peas cake of Australia). On the west the Royal garden and on the South Pott's Point with many characteristic... More

My boyfriend and I kayaked from the wharf today. It's a neat place to check out the largest navel base in the area, a handful of large yachts and Russell Crowe's home (last one at the end of the wharf). Nearby, there are cute and historic looking local homes so if you are in the area walking through the nearby... More

What's not to love about this?! Sunshine, buzz of anticipated excitement. The hub of who's who and who may be next and who's been. It's that chaotic melting pot that makes up the character of "the wharf"

We were lucky enough to stay at the Ovolo Woolloomooloo, and spend five days on this beautiful wharf. There are great restaurants at all price points, the naval yard is fascinating to watch, and it's a great place to start a walk through the Botanical Garden on the way to Mrs Macquaries Chair and beyond to Circular Quay. Take advantage... More

Thank goodness this wharf was saved from being demolished given its rich history but this is gentrification taken to the extreme, only a few token glimpses into its past can be seen now with a high end boutique hotel, loft style apartments and bland restaurants the feature of the day. I guess it was the only way to save it,... More

I found the restaurant needed a refurb...... Old and dirty.. The oyster... Well can't even talk about, very ordinary The salmon.... Over cooked! The steak over done as well, not rare! It came with no vegetables... We had to purchase vegetables. Very disappointed!
