The NSW Premier and the Transport Minister officially opened the Barangaroo Wharf after a trip from Circular Quay on the new ferry, the Fred Hollows.
Barangaroo's visitors and workers now have a new public transport option with the opening of a new ferry wharf right on the precinct's doorstep at Wulugul Walk. The Barangaroo Wharf was officially opened this morning by Premier, the Hon Gladys Berejiklian MP and Transport and Infrastructure Minister, the Hon Andrew Constance MP, who arrived on the maiden journey of a new ferry, the Fred Hollows, from Circular Quay.
All F3 (Parramatta River route) and F4 (Darling Harbour route) services that previously stopped at King Street Wharf now use Barangaroo Wharf.
The new wharf makes Barangaroo even more connected to public transport, which is minutes away from Wynyard Station via the very popular and pedestrian friendly Wynyard Walk.
From today, 30 additional weekly services on the F3 Parramatta River route came into effect. In October, customers from the Eastern Suburbs will be able to catch direct services to Barangaroo when the new cross harbour ferry route is introduced.
The Fred Hollows is one of six new ferries named by the public and includes wifi, charging stations for electronic devices, luggage and bicycle storage areas and improved access for customers with disabilities.
