Woolloomooloo ( WUUL-uu-muu-loo) is a harbourside, inner-city neighbourhood of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Woolloomooloo is 1.5 kilometres east of the Sydney central situation district, in the local government Place of the City of Sydney. It is in a low-lying, former docklands Place at the head of Woolloomooloo Bay, on Sydney Harbour. The Domain sits to the west, the locality of East Sydney is near the south-west corner of Woolloomooloo and the locality of Kings Cross is close the south-east corner. Potts Point is unexpectedly to the east.
Woolloomooloo was originally a working-class share of Sydney and has abandoned recently changed when 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. Areas of public housing (Housing NSW a.k.a. “Housing Commission”) still exist in the area.
