Now that My Fast Ferry is part of the NRMA, Members can save 10% on selected ferry services that accept OpalPay.
That’s on top of the 20% discount they already receive on whale watching, Sydney Harbour Hop On Hop Off tickets and attractions combo passes – all thanks to NRMA Blue. So now, there’s an even better way to move on the water.
Barangaroo was once a bustling container terminal, but thanks to a big urban renewal project this suburb on the edge of Sydney Harbour now has something for everyone. Discover delicious restaurants, explore the beautiful parkland, there’s enticing shopping, innovative architecture and fascinating indigenous tours.
Barangaroo is due for completion in 2021 and will include the stunning six-star Crown Sydney Resort Hotel and casino in 2020. When finished, you’ll be able to walk or cycle along Wulugul Walk from Walsh Bay to Darling Harbour. Most of the promenade is already open for walking and cycling. A small section is closed because of construction.
This vibrant area is named after a powerful 18th century Aboriginal woman who was an interlocutor with Governor Arthur Phillip, the captain of the First Fleet which arrived in 1788. Learn more about her with Barangaroo Aboriginal Cultural Tours, which also explores the rich Aboriginal history in the harbour and beyond.
At the southern end, in Barangaroo South, you’ll find one of Sydney’s hottest dining and shopping precincts among gleaming towers that underscore Sydney as a key Asia Pacific financial centre. The jewel in the crown is Barangaroo House, a three level award-winning architectural gem clad in charcoaled timber.
Along Wulugul Walk you’ll find a restaurant strip overlooking the water. There’s something here for all tastes. Anason is a Turkish mezze bar, Muum Maam for Thai, Lotus for Chinese dumplings, Ume Burger is a Japanese burger mash up and Belle’s Hot Chicken specialises in southern-style fried chook and Cirrus is world-class seafood.
Reach Barangaroo (Darling Harbour) daily from Manly, Circular Quay, Taronga Zoo and Q Station with My Fast Ferry.
