Harbour’s Heritage: take a walk through Sydney’s Woolloomooloo

Starting at the Domain and following the harbour around to Woolloomooloo Wharf this tour offers the opportunity to take in some of Sydney’s most notorious locales. Finger Wharf (Woolloomooloo Bay) is the largest timbered-piled building in the world (bet you didn’t know that!) It was also the location for troop deployment during the First and Second World Wars and the first point of call for many migrants to Australia in its earlier years.

After a wander around the harbour Harry’s Cafe De Wheels at Woolloomooloo Wharf is worth checking out for a quick bite. In fact, even Madonna ate here when she was last on tour in Australia in the early 90s (bet you didn’t know that either!)
