Close to St Vincents Hospital and the gorgeous Hyde Park, Woolloomooloo is in a low-lying, former docklands area at the head of Woolloomooloo Bay,a thriving centre for bars and dining, with many artisan stores and boutiques lining the street. There are all the services of inner city living at your doorstep, with museums, galleries and studios nearby, all within walking distance.
Long a poorer working-class district of Sydney, it has changed only recently with gentrification of the inner city areas of Sydney. The redevelopment of the waterfront, particularly the construction of the housing development on the Finger Wharf, has caused major change.
The current spelling of Woolloomooloo is derived from the name of the first homestead in the area, Wolloomooloo House, built by the first landowner John Palmer. There is debate as to how Palmer came up with the name with different Aboriginal words being suggested. Anthropologist J.D. McCarthy wrote in 'NSW Aboriginal Places Names', in 1946, that Woolloomooloo could be derived from either Wallamullah, meaning place of plenty or Wallabahmullah, meaning a young black kangaroo.
In 1852, the traveller Col. G.C. Mundy wrote that the name came from Wala-mala, meaning an Aboriginal burial ground. It has also been suggested that the name means field of blood, due to the alleged Aboriginal tribal fights that took place in the area, or that it is from the pronunciation by Aborigines of windmill, from the one that existed on Darlinghurst ridge until the 1850s.
Buses and trains are close at hand, though it is easy to walk to the CBD and all the famous spots of the city.
This elegantly presented apartment from Furnished Properties for up to 2 guests is located right in the thick of things, though is quiet enough to take a break and unwind for both short or long periods.
