Undeniably Sydney’s finest multi-use outdoor spaces, Queens Park and Centennial Park are tightly held areas, and for good reason. These neighbourhoods offer an abundance of green space, beautiful architecture and are moments from the beaches and the city centre. Queens Park and Centennial Park are for those who love a balance between inner-city living and the outdoors.
Built on what was originally deemed swamp land, Queens Park and Centennial Park are now highly-coveted neighbourhoods that border beautiful, lush and historic gardens.
With an abundance of pristine multi-use outdoor spaces, Queens Park and Centennial Park are ideal locations for those who love a healthy and active lifestyle. Whether your passion is cycling, running, team sports or horse riding, the parks have the facilities you need. They also host the annual Moonlight Cinema, concerts and running festivals, and there are dedicated playgrounds for children and places for your four-legged friends.
When it comes to location, Queens Park and Centennial Park win, hands down. These two neighbourhoods are moments away from upmarket shopping at Paddington, Woollahra and Bondi Junction. Very close to three of Sydney’s most famous beaches – Bondi, Tamarama and Bronte – and an easy commute to Sydney’s CBD and vibrant inner-city neighbourhoods.
Although Queens Park and Centennial Park have their own sprinkling of cafés and eateries, locals love to wander into neighbouring Waverley and Bondi Junction to grab a bite and a caffeine fix. The Entertainment Quarter in Moore Park is also close at hand with weekly produce markets, cinemas, restaurants, bars and retail shops as well as a live performance, sports and events venue.
Loved for their convenience to the city and easy access to sprawling parklands, Queens Park and Centennial Park tick a lot of boxes when it comes to liveability.
These highly valued neighbourhoods are the perfect example of inner-city Eastern Suburbs living at its best – they have a lot to offer even the most discerning. Every style of home from Victorian and Federation homes to modern architecture can be found here.
Large Victorian homes along Lang Street and York Road have uninterrupted views of the parks, while Birrell and Newland Streets and their surrounds have smaller abodes, and a sprinkling of small apartment blocks.
