Noted interior designer Romy Alwill has crafted beautiful, unique touches throughout these stunning apartments that enjoy prime waterfront position. We are perfect for entertaining, whether it be a harbour-side picnic on the public parklands (Illoura Reserve) that surround our building or a barbeque (gas) on your deck.

Balmain Wharf Apartments offers 4 separate serviced apartment options for your stay in Sydney. The apartments all feature their original structure and sandstone walls from the 1800’s. Fully refurbished in 2011 with modern furniture and fittings.
The apartments combine the ultimate in private luxury and proximity to all the vibrancy and culture of Sydney city. Our unique leafy harbourside location is perfect for ship-spotting and a city escape in a self-catering apartment (produce markets and health food store nearby, a local supermarket and grocer 5 minutes away, Sydney fish markets a short drive away).
An ideal 1km from the hustle and bustle of the CBD, Sydney's ferry service is among the best in the world and will take you to the historic Rocks area and Opera House, via a stop at Milson's Point for photos under the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Generally a 20 minute trip, but a lifetime memory.
The Balmain East ferry wharf is located just metres away from our doorstep so you can treat yourself to Sydney Harbour ferry rides daily. The Circular Quay to Darling Harbour ferry loops at our wharf every half hour. Only a short 10 minute traffic-free scenic ferry ride to King St Wharf, Darling Park, Darling Harbour, Pyrmont Bay and Jones Bay Wharf. The Growers' Market is held every first Saturday of the month, and the ferry ride to and from the market to the apartment is a little taste of idyllic island life.
Managed by Bannisters Point Lodge to a 4.5 Star standard there are only 4 serviced apartments within this 200 year old sandstone building. Originally the site of the Shipwright Arms Hotel, a recent full refurbishment now sees the interiors fitted out in designer style and comfort. The perfect serviced apartments for your stay in Sydney, whether for a holiday or corporate travel.
