Tucked away in the southeast of Sydney's Eastern Suburbs, Malabar is a primarily residential community with a small town feel. You'll find quiet, wide streets with one- and two-story brick homes here, along with a few low-rise apartment buildings. There are some restaurants and shops clustered near the beach.
The beach itself sits at the back of a small bay so is well protected from big waves; swimming, snorkeling, fishing, and boating are popular here. The Randwick Golf Course sits right along the cliffs of the ocean. You don't have to be a member to play here and would be hard-pressed to ask for a better view while playing a round.
Nearly half of the northern part of this neighborhood is taken up by the Malabar Headland National Park, which offers hiking, plenty of space for picnics, and features a historic WWII fortification. A correctional facility takes up most of the southwest portion of this neighborhood.
