Here is a good illustration of what I was on about re Barangaroo. Sydney - City and Suburbs published these photos today from Walsh Bay. It is a rather nice looking apartment which pays service to its historic site. I would like to live there, if I could afford it. I like to be near the sea. Beaches don't really interest me, but the sea does.
But click on the link below and you will see the property's location, that triangular area in the centre. The expanse of concrete to your left is the northern end of Barangaroo, where there will be enormous towers. Drag the map and you can see how close it is to Observatory Park and The Rocks.
