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


Clovelly is a quiet suburb in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney. It's far enough south from Bondi Beach and low key enough that it's not a hotspot for tourists, giving it a close-knit community vibe. Single-family homes, duplexes, and small apartment buildings make up the housing options here.

Dining and shopping are clustered along the main thoroughfare, Clovelly Road, which leads down to the beach. The beach itself is rather small and set back from the ocean by a few hundred feet (~120 meters). On either side of this opening are concrete platforms perfect for sunbathers; the southern side has a saltwater pool and café.

Burroughs Park and Bundock Park, which border the beach to the north and south, have exercise equipment, plenty of space for a picnic, and continue the stunning walking trail that starts in Bondi Beach.

The historic Waverley Cemetery – located in Clovelly despite its name – was established in 1877 and houses the remains of 86,000 people. Only in a country with such an abundance of stunning oceanside property would such prime real estate on the cliffs of the Tasman Sea be used for the deceased. You probably can't ask for a better spot to enjoy the afterlife and it's an interesting place for a stroll to locate some of the early luminaries who shaped Australia.

Clovelly is bordered on the north by Waverley and Bronte, on the east by the Tasman Sea, on the south by Coogee, and on the west by Randwick.
