From Wynyard Station, follow the signs to Exit 4 and take the Wynyard Walk tunnel. Exit at Napoleon Plaza. Take the sign-posted detour via Barangaroo foreshore promenade (Wulugul Walk).

You can opt to either take Wynyard Walk or Napoleon bridge across to Barangaroo South where you’ll be able to walk west toward the waterfront. Once you reach the waterfront, head north on Wulugul Walk along the foreshore to Barangaroo Reserve. This walk is approximately 1.1km long from the Wynyard Station Exit.

Please note: The Cutaway is not currently accessible via Hickson Road. The footpath is temporarily closed to pedestrians due to construction works. More information >>


There are two options if walking to the Reserve from Circular Quay. The most direct route is to walk past the front of the Museum of Contemporary Art, then turn left up Argyle Street and through the Argyle Cut, past the Lord Nelson Hotel and the Palisade Hotels, then enter the Reserve via either Munn Street or Bettington Street. This walk is approximately 1km and is fully accessible, with a short incline up through the Argyle Cut. 

For a more scenic route, follow the waterfront walk from Circular Quay, past the Overseas Passenger Terminal, Campbell’s Cove, under the Sydney Harbour Bridge to Walsh Bay and enter the Reserve at Towns Place. This walk is approximately 1.9km and is flat, fully accessible and offers wonderful harbour views.

Both routes will bring you to the Barangaroo Reserve where you will find signs directing you to The Big Design Market.
