Sydney’s harbour is one of the most beautiful and spectacular in the world and there is little doubt that the mix of bush-clad points and cliffs and the seemingly endless chain of tranquil bays and their magnificent shoreline homes add to its unique charm.
A key link in that chain is Double Bay, a suburban name which, along with neighbouring Darling Point, Point Piper and Rose Bay conjures up images of gracious living, historic mansions and elegant shops.
Double Bay is the place where the cream of Sydney society not only shop but must be seen to shop. The boutiques are to die for and the cafes and restaurants cater for pavement dining, to see and be seen.
Double Bay is just a short, scenic drive from the city and from Bondi beach. And a brisk walk from Double Bay takes you through Edgecliff and Rushcutters Bay to Kings Cross - a name once synonymous with Sydney's Bohemian quarter, but which now, sadly, exudes more sleaze than charm.
