Darling Point is an exclusive residential neighborhood on a small peninsula that sticks out into Sydney Harbour. This is a quiet community with tree-lined streets and a mix of mansions, smaller subdivided flats, and condo towers. Like most of Sydney's neighborhoods on the harbour, spectacular views are common.
For sailing aficionados, Darling Point is home to the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia, which hosts the famous Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race each year. The club also provides the only restaurant within the community's boundaries. (Like other clubs in Australia, you'll need to prove you live at least 5 km away to eat there...or become a member. As an expat you can just flash your home country's passport).
For more dining or shopping options you'll need to head to the adjacent neighborhoods of Edgecliff or Double Bay which are both a short walk away. Edgecliff also has the closest train station, making for a quick commute to the CBD.
Rushcutters Bay Park, Yarranabbe Park, and McKell Park provide great options to exercise or just have picnic and enjoy the views.
CBD: 4.5 km / 10-20 minutes by car / 20-25 minutes by transit
