This peaceful, little known pocket tucked in behind Moore Park Road is one of the best spots you can find around the park, close to everything yet so quiet and uncluttered.

Clean and bright, it is in very good, very presentable order, offering further potential to put your own stamp on it if you wish to.

Suburb Guide

Centennial Park

The prestigious suburb of Centennial Park is primarily devoted to the magnificent expanse of greenery known as Centennial Parklands – Sydney's answer to Central Park. Dedicated by Sir Henry Parkes as a public open space in 1888, it was the venue for the inauguration of Federation in 1901.

Covering more than 360 hectares, this much-loved urban open space is around 4.5km from the CBD and comprises three parks – Centennial Park, Moore Park and Queens Park, along with sporting facilities including the ES Marks Athletics Field, an 18-hole golf course and driving range, an equestrian centre, tennis courts, netball courts and sporting fields. It also incorporates Fox Studios, with its live music venue Hordern Pavilion, Royal Hall of Industries, cinemas and professional film studios.

A Centennial Park address is rather rare and often exclusive – just a handful of streets are devoted to residential purposes and they differ greatly. The salubrious parkside boulevard of Lang Road and the secluded Martin Road/Robertson Road enclave are home to magnificent Victorian and Federation mansions – some of Sydney's finest – while Cook Road is lined with terraces and apartments from the Art Deco era through to the '60s and '70s. Centennial Park couldn't be more central.

It's conveniently located moments from Paddington's trendy retail hub, Oxford Street, as well as cosmopolitan Woollahra village, while the retail mecca of Bondi Junction is just minutes away on the other side of the park. The park itself provides a diverse range of recreational and cultural attractions, including the Moonlight Cinema in the summer months and numerous outdoor music festivals.
