Barangaroo is the newest mammoth of a development in Sydney that is costing the NSW Government over $6 billion, so you know it’s going to be good. But it’s what lies beneath the shiny new exterior that is really flooring and it’s once you scratch the surface, you begin to discover magical places, like where you can get your sugary rocks off.

Here’s a comprehensive list of where you can find the best desserts at The Streets of Barangaroo…
