About Barangaroo

Located on the north-western edge of Sydney’s CBD on Gadigal land, Barangaroo is a 22-hectare redevelopment of an historically significant site.  

At the northern end, Barangaroo Reserve is a six-hectare re-created Sydney Harbour headland. It offers an Australian native garden, spectacular views, extensive walking and cycling trails, harbour coves, event spaces and picnic spots.  

The Cutaway underneath the headland is a cavernous, below-ground concrete space used for large-scale events. The southern end of Barangaroo is a retail and dining precinct with office buildings.  

Barangaroo is named after a powerful Cammeraygal woman who lived in the area at the time of early colonial settlement. Local Eora women paddling their canoes to catch fish and collect shellfish made the first economic use of the Barangaroo area. Soon after European colonisation, the site began to flourish as maritime and industrial activities grew. In the 1820s, the first wharves were constructed and facilitated the colony’s first exports. By the 1960s the site had become Sydney’s container port.
