Suburb Guide

Darling Point

Darling Point remains one of Sydney's most aspirational real estate addresses. This refined inner city haven is prized for its gracious architecture, boutique peninsula setting and wonderfully convenient location just 3km from the CBD.

A yachties' paradise, it's home to the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia (CYC) which annually hosts what is regarded as the toughest of the blue-water classics, the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race.

At the northernmost tip of Darling Point, McKell Park is as picturesque as they come, while the section of Rushcutters Bay Park found along New Beach Road provides an intimate view back to the city, with incredible views of the New Years Eve fireworks. Darling Point is dedicated to elegant residences.

Gracious turn of the century mansion, terraces and apartment buildings share its tree-lined avenues, punctuated by inspired contemporary penthouses and some post-war apartment buildings. They all jostle for brilliant views of calm boat-filled bays, the city skyline, Opera House and Harbour Bridge, which seem so close as to be almost touchable.

Some truly landmark properties can be found here, most notable 'The Swifts', one of Sydney's oldest estates, whose grand castle-like turrets and magnificent interiors have been restored by renowned heritage architects Clive Lucas Stapleton.

Exceptionally convenient, it's flanked on its eastern side by the cosmopolitan shopping haven of Double Bay, with the nearby Edgecliff Centre providing a range of amenities and transport.
