Barangaroo Reserve is a place for everyone and our aim is to make it accessible to all visitors, of all ages, including those with additional mobility requirements
Wulugul Walk, which follows the 1836 foreshore, is relatively level and, like all dedicated pedestrian pathways in the reserve is 3.8m wide. At the northern end, Wulugul Walk provides stair-free access to the Waranara Terrace and the Stargazer Lawn. Lifts connect all levels to the carpark.
HOW TO GET THERE
There are entrances from Towns Place, Hickson Road, Munn Street Reserve and Merriman Street.
For those travelling by train, both Wynyard and Circular Quay are approximately 1.1km distant. If you use a wheelchair or any other mobility device and find steep gradients difficult to negotiate, travel from Circular Quay is recommended. Travel via Wynyard is a little quicker, but involves steeper gradients. Please see this map with a suggested route.
Tactile Ground Surface Indicators and curb ramps are consistent from both locations. Shorelining from Circular Quay is more consistent than from Wynyard for white cane users.
The closest bus stops are in Hickson Road, close to Towns Place, and are serviced by routes 324 and 325, which depart from Town Hall; and route 311, which runs between Central Station and Argyle Street.
Wheelchair users accessing the park from the Towns Place entrance should be aware there is a 30m-long brick/cobbled pathway to navigate before the surface becomes completely smooth.
An underground carpark is located off Towns Place. It provides three accessible car parking spaces on Blue level and one accessible parking space on Yellow level. The entry height into the car park is 2.2m. Accessible parking bays at this Wilson Parking station cannot be pre-booked; for further enquiries contact 1800 PARKING (1800 727 5464).
There are two accessible street parking bays on Towns Place, close to the entry to the carpark.
The Hickson Road entrance is recommended if arriving by taxi or being dropped off/picked up by private vehicle.
INSIDE THE PARK
The headland reserve is, of course, exposed to the elements. Barangaroo has been extensively planted with native trees and shrubs, but until these reach maturity, there is little natural shade. Drinking fountains are provided, but it is a good idea to bring bottled water. Seating options along the walkways are custom-designed benches and the large sandstone blocks that give the park much of its character.
This is a large internal space, intended as a venue for cultural and public events. It is wheelchair accessible and houses the lift and amenities, including accessible toilets. It is recommended that guests attending events in The Cutaway requiring additional sensory considerations please call 1300 966 480 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
In addition to the amenities within The Cutaway, other toilet facilities, including two ambulant and one accessible cubicle, are located near the Towns Place entrance.
We encourage any feedback and ways in which we can further improve accessibility and inclusion. Please contact us via telephone on 1300 966 480 or email email@example.com.
