Barangaroo is Sydney’s newest urban redevelopment, a 22-hectare site between the Sydney Harbour waterfront and the city. The development is named after a powerful Cammeraygal woman who was a key figure in the local Aboriginal culture and community at the time of early colonial settlement. It encompasses three distinct areas including the Barangaroo Reserve in the north, the Barangaroo Project in the centre and the Laneways of Barangaroo in the south. Each area has its own identity and the $6+ billion Barangaroo development is now a showcase of international design excellence, leading technologies, world-class sustainability, public art and cultural programmes. Fully accessible, with excellent public transport connections – including ferries – and plentiful parking, Barangaroo is a clever combination of retail, dining, cultural and public spaces for visitors and locals to enjoy, including a visit to some of the wonderful Barangaroo restaurants.
Barangaroo has a rich heritage, starting out as a fertile fishing and hunting area for local Aboriginal people, which was developed in the late 18th century into port facilities for Sydney Harbour, until their closure in 2003. Visitors to Barangaroo will be blown away by the stunning views of Sydney Harbour both by day and at night. Foodies will enjoy the broad selection of world-class restaurants in Barangaroo, covering every conceivable style of cuisine, while the Barangaroo Reserve offers walking and cycling trails, beauty spots and tranquil coves. The central part of Barangaroo is due to be completed in 2012, combining recreational, residential, retail and commercial activities with a strong emphasis on culture.
