Just in case you weren't sure how to
pronounce it we thought this would help.

Another little neighborhood in the eastern suburbs of Sydney is Woolloomooloo. It's located on the harbor just east of the Central Business District (CBD).

Historically, it was a poorer working class suburb and even after a little gentrification, most of the area is still pretty sketch; however, a small area of it is pretty and houses beautiful yachts and fancy restaurants.
Something to strive for!
A navy base is located in Woolloomooloo.

The main street of interest is Cowper Wharf Roadway which houses a few bars, a bottle shop and some restaurants. On the other side of the street is the new marina that has some really nice restaurants, a hotel, some bars and a very notable resident, Russell Crowe.

One well known eatery is the famous Harry's Cafe De Wheels. It's known for its meat pies and we decided to walk over and grab one for ourselves. We went with the "Harry's Tiger," which was strongly recommended. While we were there eating our Tiger a wedding party rolled up to get pictures in front as well.

Turns out we weren't impressed. Sorry Harry but your reputation is far superior to your meat pies.

After a subpar meat pie and an afternoon of exploring we decided to take a load off at the local pub and have a beer. Cheers!
