DOVER HEIGHTS

Get to know
the area

Perched on a clifftop above the Pacific Ocean, Dover Heights has spectacular views of Sydney Harbour and the city skyline. This coastal suburb is one of the most affluent and desirable in the Eastern Suburbs. Locals love the leisurely, peaceful pace of life and being just a hop, skip and a jump from Bondi, Rose Bay and Vaucluse.

Lifestyle

With its prime, private location and those views, Dover Heights has always been an Eastern Suburbs gem. It offers a laid-back lifestyle away from the crowds that are a fixture in other coastal suburbs – locals love coming home to the peace and quiet.

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.
