Woolloomooloo Wharf, also known as Finger Wharf, is a charming bay side destination located in Woolloomooloo.
It is a unique location because it is the longest timbered-piled wharf across the world. What’s more, its construction was completed in 1915, before it was operated for close to a century.
Woolloomooloo Wharf Restaurants, Bars, Hotels, Apartments & Accommodation
During the 70 years of its operation, the wharf mainly dealt with wool export, but a secondary purpose was its role as the point where migrants disembarked in Australia. It also marked the staging point where soldiers were deployed ahead of both World Wars.
Today, it is remarkably different from its early days in that it has been redeveloped to feature a fashion precinct; that includes elegant residential apartments, restaurants and two upmarket hotels; namely the Water Bar and The Blue Hotel.
The Blue Hotel, also known as the Ovolo Woolloomooloo, is housed in a heritage building within the wharf. Its beautifully designed rooms have great views of the waters and are a magnificent option for visitors looking for an exclusive destination. While this hotel has no restaurant, its location and proximity to eateries along the Wharf more than make up for this.
The Water Bar on the other hand is an award-winning bar that epitomizes luxurious living by the harbour. With commanding views of the wharf, nothing compares to sipping your favourite drink and settling in the warm ambience of this bar.
A trip to the wharf is incomplete without enjoying meals at any of the restaurants that dot Woolloomooloo Wharf. Some of the top restaurants include Manta, China Doll and Otto. A tour of the wharf’s eateries is like taking a culinary journey to different continents. From pan-Asian menus at China Doll to fresh seafood at Manta Restaurant, there is something for everyone.
Look out for the stunning views of the CBD’s skyline from these strategically positioned eateries. Woolloomooloo Wharf is easily accessible using 6 Cowper Wharf Road, and is perfect for visiting with the kids.
