A quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of its neighbours, Woollahra exudes beauty, both on and off the streets. With mature trees that merge into welcoming archways along the streets, Woollahra boasts heritage-listed homes with manicured gardens, Victorian cottages, ornate Art Deco apartment conversions and several international consulates that are housed in beautifully-converted homes.
With all its style and elegance, Queen Street is home to Sydney’s best high-end boutique shopping, drawing well-heeled shoppers into the fold. Armani Junior, Herringbone and MJ Bale sit amongst gourmet delicatessens, and Victor Churchill – butchery taken to a whole new level.
Amongst all this, there is still space to step away from it all and stretch out. The hidden bushland sanctuary of Harbourview Park and the expansive parklands of neighbouring Cooper Park and Centennial Park are places where you can unwind and relax or choose to get the heart rate pumping.
If all this wasn’t enough, depending on their mood, locals can indulge in incredible dining at places such as the greenhouse-style restaurant, Chiswick or relax in old fashioned English-style pubs such as the beloved Lord Dudley Hotel.
Woollahra is one of Sydney’s neighbourhood gems that is refined yet laid-back and welcoming.
