Local Tips

Dudley Page Reserve has killer 360-degree views of Sydney Harbour and the Pacific Ocean. Rose Bay is the go-to for supplies.

Fun Fact

It’s believed the suburb got its name because it reminded the settlers of the white cliffs of Dover in England.

Lifestyle

And they take advantage of their stunning surrounds as much as they can. On any day of the year, you’ll see the locals enjoying long, leisurely walks along the coastline, and exploring, relaxing and exercising in the suburb’s many green spaces. Raleigh Reserve is dog friendly, while Dudley Page Reserve is one of Sydney’s prettiest panoramas – a hive of activity at sunrise and sunset in particular.

The shopping and dining options in Dover Heights are limited, but that’s part of its appeal. It’s bordered by Rose Bay, Vaucluse and bustling Bondi Beach, so residents don’t have to venture far to get their foodie fix. Otherwise, Tre Pani and Dover Café are local haunts, and the kinds of places where the barista knows your name, and neighbours stop to say hello. It’s a safe, friendly haven, and that, along with its community spirit, is why so many families call Dover Heights home.

For professionals, the CBD is just eight kilometres away, and accessible by buses and trains from Bondi Junction station. The airport is a 30 - minute drive, and Circular Quay is a 20-minute ferry ride from Rose Bay.
