Things To Do


Stargazer Lawn

The lawn itself is a great, flat space with incredible views by day, supposedly taking its name from the stargazer fish found in the Harbour (and perhaps nearby proximity to the Observatory). Unfortunately there isn’t much shade at this point, and it might be a few years until the trees are tall enough to provide it.

New Years Eve Harbour Bridge Views

From Walumil and Stargazer Lawn there are great views of the Harbour Bridge, meaning this will be a popular New Years Eve spot for years to come. Ticketed entry means book early or head to the Dawes Point Tar Ra Park nearby.

Barangaroo Walking / Running / Cycling Track

The track runs through the harbour side of the park and connects with Hickson Road at the south end and Town Place at the north end. It’s a nice ride, but doesn’t add much for commuters, who would be better of staying on Hickson Road.

The Cutaway

The vast, cavernous space beneath the park is known as The Cutaway and is designed to host ‘cultural events’. Access is restricted most of the time.

Lots of Restrictions

Apart from the plethora of warnings to watch out for tripping objects like stairs and ledges and other everyday stuff, the park restricts activities like ball games, and there isn’t a playground either, making it kind of dull for a day out. In fact, with barbecues, a playground, and views of the bridge, tiny Clyne Reserve nearby arguably has just as much to offer.

Picnic Areas

There are several spots along the shoreline to set up a picnic of you bring your own food. No barbecues on site. There is a barbecue at Clyne Reserve though.

Native Flora

Baranagroo boasts over 75000 individual plants including 45 species of native shrubs, 25 species of fern and grass and 14 species of native tree including Spotted Gums and Sydney Blue Gums.
