With its village charm, Glebe is a delight to explore. You’ll find colonial buildings, fine food and wine on Glebe Point Road, the lovingly restored Tramsheds Harold Park and lively markets. Stroll to the Nicolson Museum and discover Australia’s biggest public collection of archaeological treasures.

Southern Glebe Point Road, near the university, is a short walk or bus ride from Central Station and is lined with cafes, bars, shops and restaurants. Browse Gleebooks and the popular Glebe Markets every Saturday at Glebe Public School, and check out the events calendar for festivals and fairs.

Friends and families enjoying the heritage Tramsheds, Harold Park

You can walk from the school to the heritage-listed Tramsheds Harold Park, home to provedores, cafes, restaurants and bars. Alternatively, take the light rail from Central Station or Darling Harbour and alight at Jubilee Station for this delicious destination in a former tramway depot, built in 1904.

One of the attractions in this vibrant inner Sydney neighbourhood is spectacular vistas on the Glebe Foreshore Walk from Bicentennial Park, near the Tramsheds, to Blackwattle Bay and the Sydney Fish Market. Reserve a table at the acclaimed Boathouse on Blackwattle Bay, a waterside restaurant.

Blackwattle Bay, Glebe

Glebe is one of Sydney’s oldest areas, with more than 20 heritage-listed buildings and rows of 19th century terrace houses. Heritage pubs and small bars are plentiful. Sip a pint in the English-style Nag’s Head Hotel, visit the art deco Friend in Hand, and enjoy comedy at the Harold Park Hotel.

On Glebe Point Road is Different Drummer for cocktails and tapas, Mr Falcon’s for relaxed music and ambience, or the Little Guy for craft beer and live music. You can peruse books and savour wines at Sappho Books, Cafe and Wine Bar, near the shopping centre and cinema complex Broadway Sydney.
