Walking around scenic Sydney harbour is one of those iconic Australian strolls.

That just became a little easier with the completion of the 11 kilometre Barangaroo foreshore walk from Woolloomooloo to the Anzac Bridge.

The last 300-metre stretch was opened this week by Premier Gladys Berejiklian, and is set to transform Barangaroo from a once neglected and inaccessible area into what the premier’s office is describing as a “world-class cultural, residential, business and retail hub.”

“I am excited to open this stunning new foreshore walk in Barangaroo, which not only connects the natural surroundings of Barangaroo Reserve with the business district of Barangaroo South, but also completes the scenic walk along Sydney Harbour from Woolloomooloo to the Anzac Bridge.”

The walk is a 15-metre-wide, tree-lined boulevard on Sydney’s waterfront and can be used be by cyclists, commuters and visitors every day.

It was designed by award-winning landscape architect Peter Walker, who also designed the Barangaroo Reserve.

“This new public space demonstrates our commitment to ensure more than half of Barangaroo is public open space and opens up this once neglected and inaccessible area for the community to enjoy,” said the Premier.

The Lord Mayor of Sydney, Clover Moore, tweeted her appreciation of the development:

Minister for Planning and Public Spaces Rob Stokes said the opening of the final part of the Barangaroo foreshore demonstrated the NSW Government’s commitment to more public space throughout Sydney.

“In October last year, we opened Waterman’s Cove and today we make available another 300 metres of public space which runs alongside our world-famous harbour,” Mr Stokes said.

“The pandemic has shown us how vital public space is and with more people coming back into the CBD, we need more spaces like this one at Barangaroo.

“More than 100 trees were planted in this section of the foreshore walk which contributes to our goal to plant one million trees by 2022,” he said.
