"Like a secondary Detroit hood"

this area is filled with drugs users and homeless people roaming around at night, it has a huge domestic violence history since it was established, I hear my neighbours constantly screaming at one another followed by glass smashing, I am also afraid to park my car outside my home so I have to. deal with parking it somewhere on William street and paying for it, I do this because my windshield was smashed several times and I also see other cars that have been vandalised around the area. Rubbish laying around, used condoms and needles. Disgusting place to live.

"Quite and close to the city"

I love the nice short walk into the city from Woolloomooloo. It's great to go through one of the parks to either start or end the day in a good mood.

ninaa We went for a stroll from the QT hotel to the park through Wooloomooloo there were drunk people (8am) in their driveways screaming at us, a fight on one corner and strange 'spaced out' people walking around. What a shame - its such a great location and one you want to AVOID

"Inner-city suburb that is very convenient"

Woolloomooloo is a beautiful inner-city suburb that overlooks part of Sydney Harbour. It is a short bus ride to the city or for those who are keen, it is a good thirty minutes stroll to get to Pitt Street Mall. There are many private residential housing and some public housing areas in this suburb. However, because of it's proximity to the city, many young, working professionals like living in Woolloomooloo. The convenience of this suburb also comes with a price tag with property and rental prices being on the higher end of the scale.

Over the years, many restaurants and cafes have opened up in Woolloomooloo. The waterfront provides a fantastic backdrop for these businesses. However, the first ever cafe and famous Sydney icon will have to be Harry's Cafe de Wheels. This is where you can find the famous Tiger pie with peas and mash. Harry's Cafe de Wheels have visitors from all over the world patronising this small cart in Woolloomooloo and over the years, many celebrities have visited this small cafe despite the lack of seats.
