Heading about 3km east of Sydney CBD you will find the gorgeous harbourside suburb of Rushcutters Bay. It was first known as ‘Rush Cutting Bay’ after the tall rushes that grew in the swampy land. The area was transformed in 1878 to the beautiful park that has become so well known today, especially for of its marina and the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia that is home to the annual Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race.
Neighbouring Darling Point, Paddington and Kings Cross, it’s an excellent location for both business and pleasure and you will find a blend of classic 1920s and 1930s buildings and large scale apartment developments. The latest addition to the landscape is the new Advanx development that has replaced a worn down industrial site (former home of the Advanx tyre factory).
Rushcutters Bay is popular with running, walking, outdoor yoga or simply lazing on the shores of the magnificent harbour. A thriving park side urban enclave that’s home to an eclectic mix of design stores, galleries, creative agencies and cafés, it’s popular with young professionals and city types as its quiet and relaxed yet walking distance to the CBD and lure of neighbouring Kings Cross.
