Barangaroo Reserve is Sydney’s newest park and community space to open on the city’s north-western foreshore. And what a space it is! No less than six hectares of completely re-developed parkland and a huge community space offering spectacular views across the harbour.
Easy to get to by foot, bike or public transport, this is a fantastic spot to enjoy with the family. Take a picnic, enjoy a coffee and enjoy the space while you take in Sydney’s spectacular cityscapes.
The best way to get there is on foot, by cycle or using public transport.
Arrive on foot from Circular Quay by walking through the Argyle Cut and along Argyle Street to the reserve entrance at Argyle Place.

There are lots of new shared cycle ways in Barangaroo Reserve making it ideal for travelling by bike. Enter the reserve at Towns Place or the Hickson Road entrance near Nawi Cove. Cyclists arriving via Sydney Harbour Bridge should leave at the Argyle Street ramp. Cycle racks are located at Towns Place and Nawi Cove. See Sydney Cycle Ways for more information on bike routes.
