Its waterfront position adds prestige to the Neutral Bay name, known for its million-dollar views of Sydney Harbour.
Today, Neutral Bay continues to attract people to its picturesque cafe and al fresco dining scene and the in-demand Neutral Bay Public School. An amenity-packed shopping strip down Military Road and the long-esteemed The Oaks Hotel round out a suburb that is keen to deliver.
You’ll have your pick of views from art deco apartments, historic cottages, federation sandstone homes and multi-level terrace houses. Small apartments and modern mansions sit atop the harbourside rocky outcrops. Follow the leafy, meandering roads and you’ll find yourself watching the bobbing boats at Kurraba Reserve or at a casual ball game at Anderson Park.
While parking is notoriously difficult, well-serviced buses connect to the CBD in 25 minutes and the nearest train station at Wynyard in 15 minutes. And for those who can’t get enough of the water, a ferry ride will get you from Neutral Bay Wharf to Circular Quay in under 15 minutes.

The glamorous suburb of Mosman is home to the beautiful and magical Balmoral Beach. Like a gentle impressionist painting, Balmoral beach is lined with bathers languishing on the soft sands. Calm waters mean that safely doing laps is possible and children can play serenely.
Two sought-after areas that line Sydney Habour on the North side facing the Opera House and middle Harbour in the other direction. Cremorne, and especially the ritzy Cremorne Point, provide incredible views with their sloping vantage points.
Hugging the Harbour Bridge is the incredibly central suburb of North Sydney on the North Shore. Competing with the CBD for the business center of central Sydney, it offers apartments, shops and office blocks with some older buildings resisting the tide of progress.
