CREMORNE

CREMORNE Suburb Profile

Leafy waterside parklands, jaw-dropping views and meandering hilly streets are the backdrop to homely Cremorne. From the lively hub of boutique cafés, dining and the iconic Orpheum Cinema, Cremorne cascades down into the much quieter secluded Willoughby Bay on one side and opens out onto Sydney Harbour at Cremorne Point on the other. 

You'll love

The close proximity to the CBD and Northern Beaches, with serene harbour-side parklands.

The Drawbacks

Congestion along Military Road – the main artery in and out of Cremorne Junction.

Did you know

Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace is protected by the National Trust and is home to the Wurlitzer Organ.

Lifestyle

The laid-back vibe of Cremorne seems worlds away from the bustle of Sydney’s CBD, which is only a hop across the Harbour Bridge. Commuters leave their working day behind them as they arrive by bus at Cremorne Junction or by ferry at Cremorne Point. 

Cremorne Junction offers a choice of funky cafés, mouth-watering multicultural cuisines and drinking establishments that surround the iconic Orpheum Cinema. Steps away from the buzzy junction you will find quiet streets with family homes and many parks for young families to explore.

Rest on a park bench or lay out a picnic rug in the leafy parklands that line the waterfront around Cremorne Point and Willoughby Bay and soak up the magnificent views of Sydney Harbour.

Cremorne Reserve extends approximately 3km around Cremorne Point peninsula with a foreshore walk that links two ferry wharfs with direct access to Circular Quay. The beloved local 1920s-inspired harbourside pool with sunbathing decks at one end of the reserve and Robertson Point at the other is a popular spot to watch the fireworks during the festive season. Year-round, Cremorne Point is a great place for a stroll or a heart-pumping run.

The quieter Primrose Park situated along Willoughby Bay is a bushland reserve that boasts a mix of sporting and recreational facilities and a playground that has a simulated road system for young bicycle riders to navigate.

Neighbours

High-level white collar professionals with school-aged kids lay claim to the picture-book homes, while the high-rise apartments attract single 20-somethings and mature independents. 

Locals love

The bushland and open grassy fields of Primrose Reserve which boast a mix of sporting and recreational facilities, including hockey, football and soccer pitches, tennis courts and cricket nets. There is a playground with a simulated road system and enclosed climbing and swing structures – all in the picturesque setting of Willoughby Bay cove. 

The Art Deco Orpheum cinema lights up Military Road. It showcases the latest blockbusters and independent films, as well as hosting opening night events that bring together cinema's greats. The Orpheum has a piano bar and a Wurlitzer pipe organ, harking back to the romanticism of bygone eras. 

Cremorne Point Peninsula foreshore reserve extends over 3-kilometres with numerous access points, including the main Cremorne Point Wharf. The rocky Robertson’s Point and the small lighthouse are popular fishing spots, and the grassy areas harbourside pool were made for lazy days in the sun.

Start and finish the work day with a 10-minute ferry ride across spectacular Sydney Harbour. 

Property

From waterfront mansions to Art Deco apartments vying for a glimpse of harbour views, Cremorne is spoiled when it comes to property. Meandering Murdoch and Milson Streets flow down to Cremorne Point, where stately Federation homes, modern mansions and large scale Art Deco apartments cut into the natural rocky landscape. 

Climbing up the hill to Military Road nondescript high-rise apartments shoot up around small scale Art Deco apartments and smaller beautifully-renovated Federation homes and California bungalows.

Dip down towards Willoughby Bay along Benelong Road through the maze of back streets to find a mix of boutique apartments that blend seamlessly with moderate family-sized Federation homes and low-rise apartments.
