Barangaroo Name Origin
Following a public competition in 2006, the East Darling Harbour area was renamed in October 2007 in honour of Barangaroo, a Kamaraygal woman who was the second wife of Bennelong, an interlocutor between the Aboriginal people and the early British colonists in New South Wales.
Barangaroo Settlement History
The area was used for fishing and hunting by Indigenous Australians prior to colonial settlement. The area is inclusive of The Hungry Mile, the name harbourside workers gave to the docklands area of Darling Harbour East during The Great Depression, where workers would walk from wharf to wharf in search of a job, often failing to find one.
A hub for the financial services sector this major new extension of the city centre includes apartments, a major hotel, shops, cafes, restaurants and cultural venues. A pedestrian link connects Barangaroo South with public transport at Wynyard and the city centre. The foreshore park at the northern end of Barangaroo where the site meets Millers Point covers 6 hectares of sprawling space open to the public. Barangaroo Reserve is a destination for locals and visitors to enjoy a slice of Sydney Harbour.
