Birchgrove has a low violent crime rate and a low property crime rate for Sydney.


With a prime spot on the tip of a peninsular just west of the Sydney CBD, Birchgrove is an affluent suburb home to professionals and celebrities. This is a quiet area, though you'll be walking distance to all the shops, dining, and nightlife of Balmain. Because this is a quieter place to live, it's a popular spot for families. Most housing here comes in the form of Victorian-style terraces or Federation-style bungalows.

Despite the suburb's small size there are four great parks here. Birchgrove Park features athletic fields, tennis courts, and a small jetty. Ballast Point Park is a terraced recreation area with great views of the harbour; you'll find joggers and people walking their dogs here.

The suburb is served by buses and has a ferry wharf so commuting into the CBD is relatively quick.

Birchgrove is bordered on the north by the Parramatta River, on the east by Snails Bay, on the south by Balmain, and on the west by Iron Cove.
