Hugging the hill and peninsula of the eastern suburbs is one of Sydney’s most expensive suburbs. Just after Rose Bay and before the quaint village of Watsons Bay.

The views from many Vaucluse vantage points are some of the best the city offers. Panoramic water vistas dotted with sails, and spectacular sunsets behind the harbour bridge.

Grand estates hugging small bays and secret beaches such as Milk Beach, and Parsley Bay with its classic bridge, that brings influencers from all over. The large waterfront homes are often rented by visiting celebrities, such as Julia Roberts.
