Double Bay

Enjoy the enticing delights of Double Bay, from elegant shopping to beautiful sandy beaches, from charming heritage to delicious restaurants, cafes and bars. You’ll find lovely parks too as well as tree-lined boulevards and grand residences in this stylish harbourside neighbourhood in Sydney’s east.

A scenic ferry ride on one of the great natural harbours in the world is a memorable way to travel to Double Bay, an ideal spot for lunch with friends, a romantic dinner or a weekend escape. You can hop on a ferry at Circular Quay and you’ll arrive at the Double Bay Wharf in less than 20 minutes.

Poolside dining at the Intercontinental Hotel, Double Bay.

Along leafy retail streets browse haute couture, Jan Logan’s designer jewellery worn by film stars, Nerida Winter’s bespoke hats, handwoven fabrics, gorgeous babywear and much more. Boutiques are mainly on Bay, Knox and Cross streets and in side streets, arcades and pretty Transvaal Avenue.

A fresh produce market is held Thursdays in Guilfoyle Park. Alfresco cafes, restaurants and wine bars dot the boulevards and laneways – Indigo offers lunch on a traffic island. For a selection of gins from around the world, try the Stillery in the InterContinental. There are also beautifully restored pubs.

Murray Rose Pool (formely Redleaf Pool), Double Bay

A stroll northeast is picturesque Seven Shillings Beach, a stretch of soft sand that includes Redleaf Beach and Murray Rose Pool, an enclosed tidal swimming pool with two floating pontoons. There is a walkway around the pool and adjoining the beach is Blackburn Gardens, a pretty heritage garden.

The manicured lawns at Blackburn Gardens are perfect for a picnic – the Sydney Harbour views from the gardens are fabulous. And there is a sundial, water feature and secret garden to explore. Or relax under the umbrellas at nearby Redleaf Pool Cafe and enjoy lite refreshments and marvellous views.
