The Finger Wharf

Wooloomooloo wharf aka The Finger Wharf is the largest timbered-piled building in the world and was completed in 1915. During its working life for around 70 years it mainly handled the export of wool, but also acted as a staging point for troop deployment to the World Wars as well as a disembarking point for new migrants arriving in Australia.
Today it has been redeveloped as a fashionable complex housing a hotel, restaurants and residential apartments. The well-known film actor Russell Crowe lives in a $14 million penthouse at Finger Wharf (right at the end)


  1. This is a different angle on the wharf.

  2. You would think those timbers would finally give up the ghost and the wharf would slowly sink into the water.
