Balmain ferry wharf (also known as Thames Street ferry wharf) is located on Sydney Harbour serving the Sydney suburb of Balmain. It is served by Sydney Ferries Cockatoo Island services operating between Circular Quay and Cockatoo Island, with some peak F3 services operating to Chiswick. The single wharf is served by First Fleet and RiverCat class ferries.

In September 2012, the wharf closed for a rebuild. The existing wharf was demolished and a new one opened in February 2013.[1][2]

To the east of the wharf, lies Harbour City Ferries' Balmain depot.
