Past, Present & Future
Barangaroo was named after Barangaroo, the Cammeraygal woman, a powerful and influential female leader of the Eora Nation. The Traditional Custodians, the Gadigal, used this land for hunting, the harbour for fishing, canoeing and swimming, and the foreshore as a place of congregation.
At the turn of the 21st century, Barangaroo, Sydney was a disused container terminal – a physical barrier to the Western Harbour. Today, it is a dynamic cultural, residential, business and civic hub, home to some of the best things to do in Sydney.
Central Barangaroo is the last part of the precinct to be delivered. It will become the cultural and civic heart of the precinct, linking the naturalistic headland of Barangaroo Reserve and the urban environment of Barangaroo South.
