Vaucluse is a neighborhood in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney. Its location on the peninsula at the south end of the entrance into Sydney Harbour gives it a secluded, off-the-beaten-path atmosphere – and stunning views.

This is primarily a residential neighborhood, though it does have a few restaurants and cafes.

It's also one of the most expensive areas in the Sydney area: some of the richest people in Australia own homes here and even modest homes command high prices. But the million dollar views of the harbour and Tasman Sea may just make it worth it.

There are a number of green spaces here to get you outdoors. Nielsen Park has a small, charming beach and café and some walking trails. Christison Park is perched on the cliffs overlooking the Tasman Sea and features a walking path, athletic fields, an exercise station, and a historic – and still operational – lighthouse.

As mentioned, you won't find many dining or nightlife options here but it's a quick drive to nearby Rose Bay or Bondi Beach, which have plenty to offer.

Vaucluse is bordered on the north by Watsons Bay, on the east by the Tasman Sea, on the south by Dover Heights and Rose Bay, and on the west by Sydney Harbour.
