Relaxing in Barangaroo

After a day spent prowling through shops, you'll probably want to find somewhere nice and quiet to sit down and relax. Luckily, the Barangaroo reserve is only a short walk away, providing visitors and residents with six hectares of headland to find a quiet spot in. 

The reserve was created using cutting-edge technology which made it possible to transform a concrete container terminal into a natural, rocky outcrop that offers an entirely new perspective on the city of Sydney. Most importantly, the landscape is home to more than 75,000 native trees and shrubs, giving the reserve a uniquely Australian atmosphere that highlights the very best of the local flora. 

Of course, while there are plenty of quiet spots to sit down and read a book or enjoy a leisurely picnic, the Barangaroo reserve also offers visitors the chance to really explore the natural environment. This is achieved through a combination of walking paths, cycling trails and specially designed lookouts that showcase the reclaimed beauty of Sydney's newest urban hub.
