Woollahra is an affluent part of Sydney's Eastern Suburbs consisting of elegant Edwardian- and Victorian-style terraced houses. Development has been controlled here, maintaining the character of the neighborhood. The consulates of Germany, Russia, Poland, Turkey, and others have also found themselves a home in the neighborhood's residences.
Though it's only a few blocks long, Queen Street is the main commercial thoroughfare in Woollahra. This tree-lined street has the feel of an English village but has a sophisticated selection of shops, restaurants, antique stores, art galleries, and what might be the sexiest butcher shop in Sydney, Victor Churchill, which feels more like a luxury retail store. Just down the street Bondi Junction has a massive shopping center for anything not found in Woollahra.
You'll find a mix of families and professionals living here. And like many of the Eastern Suburbs, this is a popular place to live for the city's Jewish community. The liberal Temple Emanuel is within the neighborhood's borders and the Central Synagogue is next door in Bondi Junction.
