Now, I know the first thing that springs to mind with the word Woolloomooloo is money, expensive, pricey. But surprisingly, this thing to do is the best price of all, FREE!
On an unusually warm winters day (26 degrees), I decided to do a few touristy things in Sydney city that you usually only do when people come to visit. I had always seen beautiful and iconic pictures of the historical 'Finger Wharf' in Woolloomooloo but had never actually been to see it.
The wharf is easy ten minute stroll from Martin Place station. There are signs everywhere to help, in case you get lost.
Once you have made it past the quaint townhouses and gorgeous city apartments to Woolloomooloo, head to The Finger Wharf.
Once on the wharf you will find a number of restaurants with a beautiful view and excellent service (and prices to match).
Another option is to get some (cheaper) take away from the selection of shops and stores across the road from the wharf. There are benches scattered along the edge of the wharf in the sun and next to the water which makes for a relatively peaceful and picturesque place to enjoy a meal.
Inside the building on the wharf is a small museum of the history of the wharf that dates back to 1911.
Thanks Sarah, also check out the glass walled swimming pool inside which sees through the ocean. If food prices are still dear, then stroll towards the Naval base to the original Harry's Café De Wheels for their famous pies and hot dogs. Check out the photos of celebs who visited the famous caravan.
