Suburb Guide


Kensington is best known as the home of the University of New South Wales (UNSW) and the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA); but this little postcode's appeal doesn't begin and end with hitting the books. Bordering Centennial Park, Royal Randwick Racecourse, Sydney Football Stadium, the prestigious Australian Golf Club, Moore Park Golf Course and minutes from the city centre Kensington is a brisk thirty-minute walk from Sydney's prized coastline and beaches, it's a place that really delivers on lifestyle – for families, students and single professionals.

In the past, Kensington was a real a university-town, with a young, mobile population. But its unbeatable location has started to attract young families and professionals to the area. There is a mixture of high and medium-density housing, and free-standing homes. Prestige Sydney Boys and Girls High Schools are in the area as well as other quality primary and secondary schools. including Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Primary School, Kensington Public School and Our Lady of The Sacred Heart College. It's a place with a vibrant, dynamic and ever-changing community who affectionately refer to the postcode as "Kenso".

Anzac Parade, Kensington's main thoroughfare, is the place to go in search of well-priced and authentic Asian flavours, including Malaysian, Thai, Chinese and Indonesian feasts. The shop-filled, bustling high street also connects the residents to the city on a brief 20-minute bus ride. The new CBD and South East Light Rail is transforming public transport in Sydney, providing high capacity, clean and reliable services. The L2 Randwick Line extends from Circular Quay along George Street to Central Station, through Surry Hills to Moore Park, then to Randwick and Kingsford via Anzac Parade and Alison Road. The L3 Kingsford Line also extends from Circular Quay, branching from Moore Park through Kensington to Kingsford.

Running off the main drag, Kensington's charming, tree-lined streets boast wide footpaths and green spaces – in fact, the suburb was modelled on the London suburb from which it takes its name. And despite the proliferation of high- and medium-density dwellings, there's a real sense light and space in the area.
