Suburb Guide

Double Bay

Grand Federation homes and charming semis still line the intimate tree-lined avenues of this aesthetically delightful suburb, set alongside contemporary masterpieces and luxurious villas, where taste and discretion are the order of the day.

Woollahra Library at Double Bay is a highlight – reopened in 2016 and is a constant hive of activity with green walls, study rooms, a reading room with a fireplace and even a slippery dip for the children. The revitalised Kiaora Lane is almost like a central shopping hub within that area of Double Bay. There is a buzz in this wonderful hub with restaurants and cafes such as China Diner, Little Jean and Bake Bar popular with the community.

On the shores of Double Bay you'll find sailing clubs, marinas and two boutique beaches, including the gorgeous Redleaf Pool [now called Murray Rose pool]. Just 4km from the CBD, Sydney's top private schools, including Cranbrook, Scot's, Kambala and Ascham are all in the vicinity. An undeniable air of affluence and an international ambience flavour Double Bay, where the perfectly groomed and the well-heeled can be found enjoying its cosmopolitan attractions.
