Randwick is a large suburb in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs region. While it's mostly residential, there is also plenty to do here. The shopping hubs of Belmore Street and Avoca Street have a number of boutiques, retail stores, cafes, and restaurants. Another hub along Perouse Road, nicknamed 'The Spot', has bars, restaurants, and the restored art deco Randwick Ritz Cinema, which screens the latest movies. You'll find plenty of affordable cuisine here, including Vietnamese, Thai, Italian, Australian, Japanese, Indian, and tapas. Two shopping centers offer grocery stores and other day-to-day basics.
The Randwick Racecourse, which takes up most of the northwest of this neighborhood, holds horse races throughout the year. The racecourse also hosts the annual Future Music Festival, which features Australian and international artists
Depending where you live in Randwick, Coogee Beach is a 15-20 minute walk or ten minute bus ride.
Randwick has a good mix of single-family homes and multi-unit apartments. Its affordable housing and location next to the University of New South Wales make it a popular place for students. With a number of good primary and secondary schools, it's also great for families.
