Millers Point, Moore's Wharf

A view of Moore's Wharf at dusk, located on Walsh Bay in the inner city suburb of Millers Point. It is the Operational Headquarters of the Port Authority of New South Wales. The vessels moored at Moore's Wharf are used by Sydney Ports Corporation on Sydney Harbour. The wharf was established in the 1830s by Henry Moore, the first Australian P&O Cruises agent. The sandstone warehouse was built by William Long using convict labour and stone quarried on site. The warehouse was originally located further west but in 1978 was moved, stone by stone, to its present location.
