Darlinghurst is an inner-city suburb located just east of Sydney's Central Business District. Like many of Sydney's inner suburbs, this was once a rundown part of town known for its red light district. Today this is a youthful, vibrant neighborhood with an abundance of cafes, restaurants, and nightlife.

It's a popular area for young professionals, creatives and is the heart of Sydney's LGBTQ community.  Every year it hosts the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, a huge parade and festival which attracts hundreds of thousands of people.

Because this is a trendy neighborhood, it's also fairly expensive. You'll pay above average rents for the quaint row houses and Victorian-style terraces on its narrow alleys and tree-lined streets. Parking can be difficult here.

When you want to see some nature, you're just a stone's throw to the harbor and some of the beautiful nearby parks.

Darlinghurst is bordered on the north by Wolloomooloo, Potts Point, and Rushcutters Bay, on the east by Paddington, on the south by Paddington and Surry Hills, and on the west by the Sydney CBD.


CBD: 2.5 km / 10-15 minutes by car / 10-15 minutes by transit
Chatswood: 12.5 km / 20-35 minutes by car / 45 minutes by transit
Parramatta: 26 km / 40-70 minutes by car / 50 minutes by transit
