Wulugul Walk

For generations, Sydneysiders and visitors have been unable to walk along the Sydney Harbour foreshore between Walsh Bay and Cockle Bay. Now the public have access to Wulugul Walk, Sydney’s spectacular new foreshore promenade.

For generations, Sydneysiders and visitors have been unable to walk along the Sydney Harbour foreshore between Walsh Bay and Cockle Bay. It was industrial and commercial land, off-limits and dangerous.

Now the public have access to Wulugul Walk, Sydney’s spectacular new foreshore promenade.

It gets its name from wulugul, the local indigenous word for kingfish, a prize catch for Aboriginal fishermen long before European settlement – and still a delicious treat at many Sydney restaurants.

The wulugul/kingfish has a golden band along its blue-green skin, aptly similar to the golden sandstone lining the blue of the harbour along the length of the new walk.

The first two sections of Wulugul Walk to open are at either end of Barangaroo.

Walk of many lifetimes

When the whole of the Barangaroo precinct is finished in 2024 the Wulugul Walk will follow the complete 2kms of foreshore from Walsh Bay to Darling Harbour.

For those who want to enjoy a longer walk, we suggest a 90-minute stroll that takes in the city’s maritime and social history against a backdrop of some of the finest aquatic views in the world. Begin at Woolloomooloo finger wharfs and follow the existing foreshore paths to Mrs Macquarie’s Chair, through the Royal Botanic Gardens and around the Sydney Opera House. Brace yourself for bustling Circular Quay, then head under the Sydney Harbour Bridge, into Walsh Bay and Millers Point before arriving at Wulugul Walk to relax and enjoy Barangaroo.
