Why I love living in Barangaroo!

Barangaroo South is a new commercial and residential precinct in the Sydney CBD near the entrance to Darling Harbour and a few minutes walk from Wynyard Station. Being touted as the new financial district, a bit like Canary Wharf in London, it is the home of KPMG, PwC, Westpac, BT, Gilbert & Tobin and Marsh. With Barangaroo Reserve nearby, world class restaurants and the new casino underway Barangaroo it is THE place to work, live and recreate.
World-class restaurants

My favourites are Lotus downstairs for dumplings, Banksii to enjoy a reverse martini and Thai at Muum Maam. Enjoy breakfast at Bel & Brio with their farm fresh produce and for a light lunch Bourke St Bakery or the famous Belle’s Chicken. New restaurants are opening regularly including the new rooftop bar Untied.

Boutique shopping and local services

The boutique David Jones has men’s and ladies wear and accessories, or stop in for a pedicure. Local services include the Titanium Fitness First, a medical centre, chemist and the famous Short Stop doughnuts.

Entertainment

Take in a show at the Roslyn Theatre in Walsh Bay, Lyric Theatre at The Star Casino or movie at The Dendy at Circular Quay or Gold Class in George St.

Transport hub

With the new Wynyard Walk tunnel, it is only 6 minutes to get to the train station or the heart of George Street. Wheel your suitcase and in around half an hour be at the domestic or international airport. The Barangaroo ferry terminal will be opening in the next month or so as an alternative to Circular Quay.

No need for a car with a taxi rank outside or call an Uber. The best thing is the close proximity, walking to appointments around the city, or on the weekends down to The Rocks, the Darling Harbour monthly growers markets and Sydney Fish Markets.

Local community

Regular networking events are arranged for residents which include executives, business owners, expats, retirees and young professionals. Community activities are held regularly at the Barangaroo Reserve or relax at the new Space yoga studio.
