Suburb Guide

Watsons Bay

Set at the entrance of the peninsula which culminates in dramatic South Head, Watsons Bay has grown into an exclusive family address. Until the 1950's, it was very much a peaceful fishing village, but in recent decades its sublime harbour and ocean views, immense character and relaxed ambience have seen it transformed into a prestigious suburb.

Many of its charming original weatherboard fisherman's cottages have been lovingly restored and are dotted among some historic sandstone manors and luxurious contemporary mansions. Just head to the shores of idyllic Camp Cove and you'll get a glimpse of the handful of luxury properties lucky enough to enjoy direct access to its serene shores.

Casual sophistication is the order of the day at its most famous restaurant, the iconic Doyle's, and the neighbouring Watsons Bay Hotel (known as 'Beach Club'). Commercial development has thankfully been contained here, and the waterfront is limited to a few small cafes and takeaway shops, with the odd eclectic specialty store thrown into the mix.

At 11km from the CBD, it's the outermost Eastern Suburb, but its boutique beaches, harbourfront parks, clifftop walks and spectacular views ensure that on a hot weekend it can be packed with locals and tourists. During the week however it's lovely and quiet and retains that traditional 'old Sydney' ambience.
