Historically, Balmain’s contributions to Sydney’s shipbuilding, engineering, and coal mining industries — as well as its subsequent status as a major port — has allowed the area to develop into the thriving suburb that it is today. With its tree-lined foreshores and streets lined with Victorian and Edwardian cottages, Balmain is a charming suburb to visit.
Sydney’s accommodation options include a variety of properties to suit different tastes and budgets. Balmain’s self-contained apartments range from classically styled cottages to modern living spaces with all the trimmings. Enjoy a number of facilities such as kitchens, bathrooms, lounge areas, balconies and even waterfront views over Mort Bay, White Bay, Parramatta River or Darling Harbour. The area’s bed and breakfasts offer a cosy place to stay and may feature barbecue facilities, spas, and complimentary toiletries among their many perks.
