Lifestyle

Victoria Street is a foodie’s destination with its multicultural restaurants. It’s much quieter counterpart, Stanley Street, is an enclave of restaurants, bars and galleries renowned for its Italian-style fare.

A major commercial thoroughfare linking Sydney’s CBD to the Eastern Suburbs, this energetic stretch of Oxford Street is lined with bars, clubs, restaurants and boutique shopping. Taylor Square is ground zero for Australia’s largest gay pride parade, the Sydney Mardi Gras, held each year in March and attracting over 300,000 party-goers who come from all over the world for the festivities.

Renowned for more than its innate ability to entertain, Darlinghurst has a serious side. It is home to the prestigious medical corridor of St. Vincent’s Private Hospital, the Garven Institute of Medical Research and the University of Notre Dame School of Medicine. The National Art School, housed in the historic Darlinghurst Gaol, attracts art students from across Sydney.

The natural world is brought to life at the Australian Museum and the award-winning Sydney Jewish Museum gives visitors a glimpse into the haunting events surrounding the holocaust.

With two established private schools and small, independently-owned businesses, Darlinghurst has a reputation for welcoming people from all walks of life – by far its most endearing feature.
