Bangaroo – Sydney’s newest suburb

Holiday Accommodation

Right on the Harbour foreshore adjacent to circular quay, opposite to Pyrmont and alongside Darling Harbour/ King Street Wharf this suburb was always going to be popular with the locals and the property investors and now that the infrastructure has started and businesses and residents are now calling the suburb home it is almost like it has always been there.

Nestled on the Sydney Harbour foreshore with views over the Inner West and the Cockatoo Island this suburb is a rarity in the size and the location. Having once been a place where Aboriginals would fish and eat some 6000 years ago, then evolved to what was called the Hungry Mile when scores of unemployed men would search for work on the docks and now it has be transformed back to a harbour foreshore park that allows the people of Sydney to enjoy.

The name Barangaroo comes from a Cammeraygal woman who was a powerful voice in the early days of colonial Sydney, and was aptly chosen to highlight the past, present and the future of the cultural heritage.
