Barangaroo Reserve

Looking back, I realise this was the last place of attraction I visited in Sydney.

It was a cloudy, overcast day, which sort of mirrored my feelings about leaving the beautiful city soon. I decided to do something about those feelings, and together we went for a walk at the newly opened Barangaroo Reserve. It helped.

Barangaroo

While walking around Wynyard station, I saw all these stickers on the ground, and my curiosity was aroused.

Following them, I arrived at what seemed nothing to be more than a gigantic construction site.

I eventually found out from these workers that the site was still under development.

As I continued to walk around the area, I noticed many old buildings and structures.

Something nagged at me about the cultural and social price of this development project.

Feeling suspicious, I did some research on the internet. While the official site paints a promising and rosy picture, there have understandably been those adversely affected as well. I guess a development project on a scale like this couldn’t have been done without sacrifice. But really, what are the sacrifices for?
