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!
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.
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.
