KENSINGTON

Get to know
the area

A university town at heart, Kensington has a proud arts, culture and dining scene that keeps locals loyal. Nestled between the city and the coast, it’s known for its Federation-style homes, lush parks and tree-lined streets. Families and students mingle with older residents who have called Kensington home for years.

Lifestyle

When it comes to lifestyle, Kensington is all about culture and convenience. It has a vibrant arts scene thanks to NIDA and UNSW, and the dining scene is not only diverse, but features some of the best and most authentic Asian food in Sydney. The main streets are buzzing, but locals find balance in Kensington’s parks and quiet, tree-lined backstreets. 

As for amenities, you have everything you need at your fingertips. Whether you want to go to the CBD, the beach, the racecourse or the airport, you can get there in 15 minutes. Anzac Parade is the go-to strip, and offers a string of cafés, restaurants, pubs, shops, fitness studios, boutiques and supermarkets. When they want to branch out, locals head to nearby Moore Park, Randwick and Zetland for shopping, or catch a game at Allianz Stadium or the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Students aside, most residents commute to and from the city for work. A number of bus routes run through the suburb, and the highly anticipated Sydney Light Rail, which runs along Anzac Parade, is slated to be completed in 2019.

Neighbours

With one of the country’s biggest universities in its centre, Kensington is home to many students. They bring a buzz and energy to the suburb, and some choose to settle there long after their studies are over. Young professionals also enjoy the dining and nightlife scene, and they love being a 15-minute bus ride from the CBD. Kensington is also a family-friendly gem, and then there are the empty nesters, who see no reason to leave the suburb where their kids grew up. Why would they?  

Area Features

ARTS & CULTURE

Thanks to NIDA performing arts school and UNSW, Kensington’s arts and culture scene is thriving. At the Palace Theatre and John Clancy Auditorium, locals enjoy theatre, musical and dance performances starring some of the city’s most exciting up-and-coming talent.

PARKS & PLAYGROUNDS

While it’s just a stone’s throw away from the sprawling Centennial Park, Kensington has plenty of parks of its own to explore. There are seven in total, all of which have playground equipment – one of the many reasons why young families are choosing to settle down in the suburb.
