Barangaroo Reserve is one of the newer green spots in Sydney. A recently transformed industrial site, it’s now a six-hectare headland that gives a new perspective on the iconic harbour. It’s the perfect place for a picnic with family or friends, and in fact, the space actively encourages it: with the option to either BYO or order from their Pop Up Picnic services. Barangaroo Reserve features spectacular views, beautiful coves and a range of picnic spots. We recommend ending your day here and having a picnic while the sun sets. It’s simply magnificent over the harbour!
