Barangaroo Reserve, stairs

These stairs are located in the middle of Barangaroo Reserve, in the inner city suburb of Barangaroo. This was once the site of a concrete industrial container terminal which has been transformed into a foreshore park, with sandstone blocks used to build a naturallistic headland and terraces, landscaped with native trees and shrubs. The sandstone used at Barangaroo Reserve extracted from beneath, in what is now The Cutaway, the reserve’s massive cultural space.
