Marrinawi Cove

Marrinawi Cove is beautiful and sheltered spot located at the northern end of Barangaroo Reserve and is 700 square metres. Native flora and sculpted sandstone line the Cove.

Marrinawi is the Sydney Aboriginal word for large canoe, and was used to describe the vessels of the First Fleet into Sydney Harbour. For thousands of years the Gadigal, used this area for swimming, bathing, canoeing and fishing.

The NSW Government opened a new swimming enclosure at Marrinawi Cove, located at the northern end of Barangaroo Reserve, as a way to revive swimming in Sydney’s famous harbour waters. Find out more.
