A secret tunnel to Darling Harbour & Barangaroo
Many of us Sydneysiders and tourists alike are not aware of the newly-built tunnel: Wynyard Walk to King St Wharf and Barangaroo. I happened to stumble across this "secret and hidden" tunnel by accident and upon this discovery, I realised the commute to the popular and picturesque Darling Harbour, Cockle Bay and Sydney's newest attraction Barangaroo, was cut by a little over half the walking time!

The newly tunnel is a brilliant idea and cuts walking time to Darling Harbour, Cockle Bay & Barangaroo by half!

The Wynyard Walk provides a world class fully accessible pedestrian link between the newly-renovated Wynyard Train Station to King Street Wharf and Barangaroo.

Follow the signs to Exit 4 for Darling Harbour & Barangoo exists

This short, easy and some-what scenic enjoyable walk takes approximately six-minutes and is perfect for people with disability, elderly and people with strollers/prams and luggage, as there are no steep inclines.

The Tunnel is open daily, all-year-round between 5am-9pm and it is located in the heart of Sydney CBD. The Tunnel also offers convenient access to Circular Quay, with a 10-minute easy walk.

The Napoleon Plaza...

Exit 4 at Wynyard Station leads to the Wynyard Walk to King St Wharf Tunne. Take this exit and follow the pathway till you reach Napoleon Plaza. Upon here to the right, Barangaroo Exit can be found and straight ahead is the Walkway to King St Wharf.

The Walkway offers views of old & new buildings...

This 180-metre and 9-metre wide pedestrian tunnel holds up to 20,000- commuters per hour and is the perfect way to get to Darling Harbour, Cockle Bay and Barangaroo without having to walk-through the hustle and bustle of crowds, crossing roads, and steep inclines of Sydney CBD.

Escalators leading down to King St Wharf...

It was four-years in the making and certainly worth the wait for those who have known about the tunnel and certainly a surprise discovery for the rest of us!

You will notice sculptures to your left, follow the road to the end and you King St Wharf awaits...

The Walkway features escalators, stairs and lifts and is perfect for those cold, rainy days.

Walk past the sculptors to King St Wharf...

The tunnel will open 24-hours, all-year-round once the completion of Clarence Street from the Walkway is completed later this year.

King St Wharf!
