To get a sense of what makes Sydney tick, step out and discover nearby areas such as Milsons Point, Balmain, and Darlinghurst.
The Sydney Opera House, certainly one of Sydney’s most iconic attractions lies just 1 mile (2 kilometers) away.
Barangaroo has a number of museums, exhibits and show venues nearby that make great places to visit. In particular, you should make sure you check out Australian Museum, Customs House and Powerhouse Museum. Enjoy seeing local and touring talent strut their stuff at the Capitol Theatre in Haymarket, Theatre Royal and IMAX Sydney. There are plenty of interesting galleries to visit near here including the Art Gallery of New South Wales and the Museum of Contemporary Art.
If you are visiting with the whole family, head to Luna Park in Milsons Point. You will appreciate the amazing animal adventures at Sydney Aquarium and Wildlife Sydney.
When it’s time escape the city, head to the nearby outdoor areas. Unwind and relax, play catch with the kids and make the most of the sunshine at nearby the Blackwattle Bay Park in Glebe. If you're in need of a natural setting don’t miss the Royal Botanic Gardens and the Chinese Garden of Friendship.
While you are in and around Barangaroo, stop by Sydney Tower, Cockatoo Island in Drummoyne and the St Mary's Cathedral. The St. James Church offers travellers to Sydney the opportunity to better understand the part religion has played in the area.
Head to the Westfield Shopping Centre, Harbourside and Market City for some retail therapy.
At the end of a long day enjoying Barangaroo, stay the night at one of the area’s hotels or serviced apartments. The Travelodge Hotel Sydney, the Four Points by Sheraton Sydney, Darling Harbour and the Swissotel Sydney are just some of the best places to find a warm welcome and a good night’s rest.
