Woolwich Ferry Wharf
Woolwich Ferry Wharf (less frequently known as Valentia Street Wharf) is situated at the mouth of Lane Cove River to the west of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Servicing principally the neighbourhood of Woolwich, this wharf has recently undergone a face lift and is much more comfortable and modern than it used to be.

Choosing Woolwich Ferry Wharf for Your Cruise Pick Up
Woolwich Ferry Wharf is a really convenient wharf for Woolwich residents who want to see the sights in Sydney Harbour, as it's the most central of all the available options. It's also recently been upgraded as part of Sydney's overhaul of ferry wharfs, so it's now much more accessible and has a nice new covered waiting area and some bike racks. One downside, perhaps, is that people arriving from outside Woolwich will likely have to take a ferry to get here, but with frequent services arriving from Parramatta and Circular Quay, it's not so big of an issue.
Getting to Woolwich Ferry Wharf
Woolwich Ferry Wharf is easily accessed by car, especially for a quick drop off or pick up. There's a limited amount of commuter parking available, though, so if you are planning to arrive by car, be sure to plan parking ahead of time. The wharf is on the 505, 538, 580W and 581W bus routes, meaning public transport is also a good option (the closest stop is just a couple of hundred feet away on The Point Road). For cyclists, the good news is that the wharf now has bike racks, and of course there's always the option of arriving by ferry on the F8 service, which is a quick, easy and option from the Sydney CBD or Parramatta.
Amenities are somewhat thin on the ground around Woolwich Ferry Wharf, with most shops and liquor stores a fair trek away in Woolwich. So, if Woolwich Ferry Wharf is the most convenient pick up spot for your group, please do bear in mind that if you've forgotten your ice or your sunblock, heading off to grab some might cause a significant delay to your day out.
