Suburb Profile


Chic, historical and picturesque, Woolloomooloo is a small yet bustling harbourside hub in Sydney’s eastern suburbs that’s famous for its expansive wharf, award-winning restaurants, sophisticated cocktail bars and celebrity sightings.

Nestled between the Royal Botanic Gardens, Potts Point and Kings Cross, Woolloomooloo is three kilometres from the Sydney CBD and is home to the longest timbered-piled wharf in the world. Finger Wharf (also known as Woolloomooloo Wharf) was built in 1915 and has taken on many guises in the last 100 years, including a wool and cargo dock, and a staging point for troop deployment during World War II. Today, Finger Wharf is one of the most fashionable residential and dining complexes in Sydney and is purportedly tenanted by several Australian celebrities including Russell Crowe.

With so many tantalising restaurants on offer, dining out has become part of the culture of Woolloomooloo. Both upscale and casual dining venues are on offer at Woolloomooloo Wharf and along busy Cowper Wharf Road including the award winning China Doll, Otto Ristorante, Manta Restaurant, and Aki’s. For casual dining with a view, head to Woolloomooloo Bay Hotel, and for one of the best meat pies you’ll ever eat, don’t miss an opportunity to stop at Harry’s Cafe de Wheels.

Art and theatre are also part of the culture of Woolloomooloo with several art galleries and theatres hosting regular exhibitions and performances for visitors and locals alike. And with bustling Bourke Street and Crown Street on your doorstep, everyday amenities are easy to come by in Woolloomooloo.
