About

Nestled between the natural wonder of Sydney Harbour and the bustling city streets, Barangaroo is a 22-hectare reinvention of an historically significant site.

Rich with multi-layered history, Barangaroo is a dynamic retail, cultural and financial hub, with more than 50 per cent of the precinct offering extraordinary public spaces for everyone to enjoy.

Nestled between the natural beauty of Sydney Harbour and the bustling global city of Sydney, the 22-hectare, $6+ billion development is a showcase of international design excellence, leading technologies, world-class sustainability, public art and cultural programs.

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

In contrast, the southern end is a foodies’ paradise, only a few minutes’ walk from Wynyard Station. There are more than 30 restaurants and bars in this specially curated dining precinct. The laneways of Barangaroo are where contemporary architecture and the corporate world comfortably collide with the area’s maritime and industrial history.

Between Barangaroo Reserve and the laneways in the south is the Central Barangaroo project area. This part of the project is still under tender, with the successful bid due to be announced in late-2017. This area’s civic and cultural contribution is intended to be the beating heart of Barangaroo.

Once complete, more than half of Barangaroo will be dedicated public space encompassing a 2km continuous harbour promenade, expansive parklands and outdoor entertainment areas, extraordinary public art and cultural programming.

Barangaroo will support more than 24,000 permanent jobs, provide a home to 3,500 residents and contribute some $2 billion each year to the NSW economy.

Barangaroo is named after an Aboriginal leader at the time of European colonisation. Learn more about the Aboriginal history and significance of Barangaroo here.
