Unveiled to much fanfare in 2015, Barangaroo Reserve nails practicality and scenery – there’s parking, disabled access, toilets and flat ground for that picnic blanket. Choose from uninterrupted views of Sydney Harbour or the Harbour Bridge, or make a quick indoor detour to check out the latest exhibition at The Cutaway. If you weren’t organised enough to BYO provisions, there are options for bread, meats, cheese and sweets at the nearby Barangaroo dining precinct. Lay out your spread on the rocks by the shore or on Stargazer Lawn, listen to the waves and watch the sun set over the water with family or friends.
