When locals descend from their high-rise apartments, they tend to converge on the cafés and delis, or linger at Beare Park. Although Elizabeth Bay only has a small selection of cafés, locals only have to meander up the street to be immersed in one of Sydney’s café and dining hotspots, Potts Point.
It’s a neighbourhood that has over 90 percent of residents living in multi-dwelling abodes in fewer than 20 streets, so parking is at an absolute premium. Many opt to ditch the car – it’s an easy walk or bike ride to the city.
Elizabeth Bay attracts a variety of professionals and creatives who love living next door to one of Sydney’s most eccentric neighbourhoods, Kings Cross/Potts Point, and being within easy reach of the CBD.
