AN ICON OF SYDNEY MARITIME HISTORY
A prestigious feature of Sydney Harbour’s Dawes Point, is its rich maritime history. Military barracks were erected for soldiers guarding the Dawes Point Battery. The significance of Sydney Harbour grew further in 1912 when Pier One was officially constructed as a passenger terminal. As time went by, the address grew in stature as the sight-to-see for those setting foot into Sydney for the first time. However, in 1982, $5 million was sanctioned to be spent on revitalizing the old passenger terminal, to transform it into something that Australia had waited for, since 200 years – a recreational hub.
