Suburb Guide


Cosmopolitan, refined and charming, Woollahra is 4km east of the CBD. Considered the grown up version of its neighbour Paddington, Woollahra's leafy avenues are lined with a variety of properties.

Some enclaves are dominated by ornate turn-of-the-century homes, others by elegant terraces and historic sandstone cottages, others by Art Deco apartments and some by discrete stately homes secluded by private gardens.

One of its main thoroughfares, Ocean Street, is known as Sydney's 'Consulate Belt', where donsulates reside in grand traditional mansions. Woollahra retains a vibrant village atmosphere based around coffee, dining and perusal of its interesting and exclusive shops.

Woollahra village, as it's known, comprises the area around the junction of Queen and Moncur Streets, which is home to renowned eateries such as Luxe and Bistro Moncur, the gourmet attractions of Simon Johnson, and salubrious boutiques.

Charming pubs are dotted around the suburb, favourites being the quintessentially English Lord Dudley, The Woollahra Hotel, The Centennial and the young and trendy Light Brigade on Oxford Street. The lush expanse of Centennial Park borders Woollahra to the south.
