What You’ll Love

Located 9 km out from the CBD, Dover Heights can feel like its own private island due to the peaceful atmosphere and abundant parklands. Still within close proximity to busier suburbs boasting world-class dining, shopping and entertainment, locals really do have the best of both worlds! This Eastern Suburb features mainly affluent individuals and older, established families who enjoy the luxury and privacy Dover Heights provides.

The cliffs that make this suburb so popular offer large, grassy parklands, perfect for families with young children, as well as those who have furry four-legged companions. One of the most frequented parks is Rodney Reserve. Featuring large soccer and football fields, this one is popular amongst the sportier locals. A well-kept secret, these cliffs are also home to climbing ropes nicknamed the ‘dover ropes’, used by fisherman who climb down and take advantage of some of the best fishing spots in the east.

Also popular is Dudley Page Reserve, famed for its beautiful picturesque view of Sydney Harbour. Those wanting to avoid the busy crowds often gather here to watch the New Year’s firework displays. The park also features a bike track perfect for those looking to stay active, enjoy the outdoors and take in the beautiful views. The combination of beautiful parklands and scenic views means you’ll often find much of the community out and about on weekends, enjoying the fresh ocean air.

Practically on your doorstep is the beauty of Bondi Beach and all it has to offer. A short drive (or walk) will see you in the heart of Sydney’s most popular beach, with plenty see, eat and do at your fingertips! When it comes to shopping, Bondi Junction is home to one of the largest retail precincts and is just moments away from Dover Heights. Boutique, designer shops are just waiting for you to explore in the neighbouring suburb of Double Bay, or a short trip will put you straight into the depths of Paddington’s luxury shopping precinct.
