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 play.
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.

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.
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. With the ferry on the doorstop, enjoy the ride to Circular Quay or on the weekends to Watsons Bay and Manley.
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 and Sydney Fish Markets.
Community events are arranged for residents which include executives, business owners, expats, retirees and young professionals. Activities and events are held regularly in the precinct such as Vivid, with markets at the Barangaroo Reserve or just relax at the Space yoga studio.
