Neighbouring Suburbs

Darling Point is located in a very prestigious area, counting Double Bay, Rushcutters Bay and Darlinghurst as neighbours.

What You’ll Love

Primarily a residential area, the allure of Darling Point is a combination of beautiful, sprawling mansions and its close proximity to neighbouring suburbs which offer luxury lifestyle features. This Eastern Suburb is a bit of a who’s who of Sydney’s elite with some of Sydney’s most wealthiest residents living here. Older, established professionals tend to occupy houses, whilst the younger generation are drawn to the waterside apartment buildings. Just 4 km from the city, it’s the perfect location for those looking for a luxury suburban lifestyle whilst still being close enough to commute to work each day.

Prestigious Darling Point provides a quiet lifestyle for residents, allowing its more vibrant neighbours to take the lead when it comes to shopping, dining and entertaining. This Eastern Suburb directly borders Rushcutters Bay, an area locals favour thanks to its tranquil surrounds, expansive foreshore parks, million dollar yachts and private access to the harbour.

When it comes to shopping, dining, drinking and entertainment in general, locals are just a hop, skip and a jump away from world-class destinations, including Double Bay, Paddington, Potts Point and Darlinghurst. If you want to stay within Darling Point but still grab a nice meal, local restaurants Bei Amici and Blue Water Grille have you covered.

One of the major draw cards is the gorgeous McKell Park. Boasting beautifully manicured lawns, and a prime position being located just steps away from Darling Point Wharf. McKell Park is perfect for everything from a leisurely weekend stroll all the way through to hosting a wedding or social event.
