Overview
More
Barangaroo Reserve is a six-hectare re-imagined Sydney Harbour headland that sits above a spectacular cultural space called the Cutaway. Named after Barangaroo, a Cammeraygal woman who was a powerful voice in the early days of colonial Sydney, the reserve is rich in Aboriginal and cultural history and remains an area of great significance for Australians across all cultures. As well as providing spectacular new views of Sydney's iconic Harbour, Barangaroo Reserve features more than 75,000 native trees and shrubs, extensive walking and cycling trails, idyllic coves and picnic spots. The park also glories in rock pools created from the 10,000 blocks of unique Sydney sandstone excavated directly from the site during the project.

An awesome little reserve that was once a flat concrete wharf and off limits to the public for 100 years or so. A truly awesome Australian native landscape made even more impressive that much of the garden sits on huge pylons reattaching it to the...More

Great to see some money spent converting disused Crown land into a brand spanking new sizeable park, with investment in lighting and seating.

This area is still being heavily redeveloped, however the reserve at the Sydney Bridge end is complete and is really beautiful. Take the stairs up to the top if you’re feeling energetic, or hop in the lift! The landscaping is truly stunning and the views...More

A beautiful green area right on the water with the amazing view of the bridge on one side and Sydney’s skyline on the other. Really quite and relaxing and incredibly well kept, as all the parks in the city. Worth a walk around
