Suburb Guide


Very much a family oriented suburb, exclusive Vaucluse is all about large blocks of land, lush gardens, swimming pools and sweeping views, either back across Sydney harbour or out to sea.

Located around 9km from the CBD, Vaucluse's architecture reflects a range of eras. The area is noted for its long established sprawling estates, some running down to the harbour's edge and boasting superb waterfront facilities.

On the ocean side of the suburb, in an area known as Diamond Bay, a number of apartment buildings from varying eras provide a more affordable entry into this prestigious address.

One notable landmark is Vaucluse House and Tea Rooms, an historic property which formed an integral part of the area's former Wentworth Estate, to which many of the suburb's earliest homes once belonged.

A number of boutique beaches, gorgeous reserves and harbourside attractions make the suburb both picturesque and popular with families and visitors, with Neilsen Park and Parsley Bay being two of the best known. Wonderfully peaceful and picturesque.
