Renowned for its exclusive tree-lined streets and chic village style shopping strip, Woollahra is located 5km east of the CBD in the Municipality of Woollahra. Centred on Queen Street, the village is brimming with antique stores, galleries, high end boutiques and cafés. The newly reopened Victor Churchill butcher shop has become a local landmark and attracts an ever-growing number of gourmands. There are plenty of gourmet delis and Parisian style cafés and patisseries along with renowned restaurants such as the award winning Bistro Moncur and the Lord Dudley Hotel.
As an extremely affluent and well-heeled suburb, Woollahra attracts professional families, executive couples and empty nesters and is also home to Sydney’s consular belt. The housing comprises a mixture of heritage Victorian and Federation homes and a small number of boutique residential blocks – including a 1920s block famous for providing the façade for the racy 1970s television series Number 96 – Australia’s first prime time soap opera. High-rise development has been avoided completely, maintaining the heritage atmosphere of the suburb.
Woollahra is just a short stroll to Centennial Park, located on the opposite side of Oxford Street, and is also easy walking distance to Bondi Junction’s retail hub and the flagship Westfield. Woollahra is home to two well-regarded primary schools, namely Woollahra Public and Reddam House.
