Double Bay, NSW

Boutiques amongst the boulevards

Double Bay

This harbourside precinct with its cosmopolitan café society is home t o a number of designer boutiques, making it perfect for those with a penchant for upmarket fashions. Be sure to wander past the grand residential homes of the coiffed and manicured locals and you’ll notice how Double Bay exudes European assurance. It has the benefit of a down to earth side too – the Wheatsheaf pub hosts live bands and attract young crowds to its courtyard.

To the east is Rose Bay, where you can fly via seaplane over Sydney Harbour to the Northern Beaches. Or simply watch the seaplanes taking off and landing from Rose Bay’s Steyne Park next to the ferry wharf, a great spot for a picnic. In between Double Bay and Rose Bay is Redleaf Pool where you can join locals for a dip in the harbour. Double Bay is easy to get to by bus and train or car, as straightforward access parking is available. Or go via ferry from Circular Quay and sail past some of Sydney Harbour’s most exclusive suburbs on your way.
