The new Woolwich Wharf

The new wharf provides customers with an improved public transport experience. The new wharf includes a floating pontoon connected to land by an uncovered gangway and entry bridge.

The pontoon has a curved roof, seating and glass weather protection panels. All existing wharf structures have been removed.

Some of the land surrounding the wharf has also been upgraded to improve customer facilities and meet accessibility requirements. The waiting shelter and toilet has been refurbished and accessible paths to the wharf have been provided. The footpath has been raised and three accessible parking spaces have been realigned. Two kiss and ride parking spaces and new bicycle parking hoops near the wharf entry have also been provided.

Temporary bus route

Customers will be able to catch a temporary bus service, route 537, operating in a loop between Hunters Hill and Woolwich, to connect with the F8 Cockatoo Island ferry services.

This bus service is in addition to the existing bus services in the area. Customers are encouraged to plan their trip by visiting transport.nsw.info or calling 131 500 before starting their journey.
