Suburb Guide

Randwick

Approximately 6km from the CBD, Randwick is bordered by the lush expanses of Queens and Centennial parks to the north, the suburbs of Coogee and Clovelly to the east, Kingsford to the south and Kensington to the west. Its name is synonymous with racing.

Dating back to 1830, the Randwick Race Course sees Sydney's colourful racing identities rub shoulders with high society and the average punter. Other notable Randwick landmarks include the Prince of Wales Hospital, a campus of the University of New South Wales, and Randwick Boys and Girls High Schools.

As Sydney's first suburban municipality, proclaimed in 1859, Randwick retains plenty of historically significant and heritage-listed buildings which are carefully preserved. However major redevelopment occurred in the 1960s and '70s with the construction of numerous residential walk-up flats, many of which now provide affordable housing for local university students.

Randwick has a substantial retail centre extending along Belmore Road, home to the Royal Randwick Shopping Centre and a variety of inexpensive clothing stores, eateries and supermarkets. 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.

The quaint area commonly known as 'The Spot' is a charming cluster of unique specialty stores, restaurants and the historic cinema known as the Randwick Ritz, a local institution where every night is 'cheap night'.
