Suburb Guide


Like so many of Sydney's inner city suburbs, Darlinghurst's gentrification just seems to continue. Bordering the south west of the CBD, it's one of Sydney's most renowned entertainment hubs, with lower Oxford Street and the bustling Taylor's Square home to countless bars and clubs.

The cosmopolitan café strip of Victoria Street is feted for its coffee, served with love at local favourites like Fabbricai and Tropicana, the original home of the Tropfest short film festival. Travel further down Victoria Street and you'll get to the neon lights of Kings Cross.

The Darlinghurst precinct known as East Sydney or 'Little Italy' is home to Stanley Street's cheap and cheerful Italian diner Bill & Tony's, a Sydney institution where the basic menu and old-school decore have changed little over the years.

Darlinghurst's quaint streets are lined with Victorian terraces which are being renovated to reflect the area's increasing affluence. Art Deco apartment buildings sit side by side with a host of revered contemporary developments, including Harry Seidler's tower The Horizon, Allen Jack + Cottier's Republic 1 and 2 and Top of the Town. Local landmarks include St Vincents Hospital and the National Art School in the grounds of the old Darlinghurst jail.
