POPULAR SYDNEY SUBURB GUIDES

Explore some of our most popular Sydney suburb guides below.

BONDI BEACH GUIDES

Bondi is a hugely popular Sydney suburb to live in for fitness buffs, expats and backpackers. We've all dreamed of living in Bondi and it's no surprise a lot of expats flock to Bondi when they first arrive into Sydney! Imagine morning swims and some of the best sunrises in Sydney, an easy commute into the city and lots of fantastic places to eat, drink and shop in this eclectic suburb. Just be warned, to rent a decent place in Bondi comes with a price tag because it's that popular.

CHIPPENDALE GUIDE

Chippendale is a fantastic suburb which has been totally revolutionised in the last few years. Think of a modern industrial vibe with plenty of art galleries, places to eat and so much more going on. Plus, it's right next to Central Station in Sydney so makes for a great place to wonder around after work for dinner, or to check out the markets on the weekend.

LOWER NORTH SHORE GUIDES

Having lived in Lower North Shore in Sydney for three years, we loved exploring this Sydney suburb like no other. Expect beautiful Sydney harbour walks, fantastic place to eat and the best markets in Sydney - Kirribilli Markets! Did we mention the Lower North Shore is also home to loads of secret gardens in Sydney?

MANLY BEACH GUIDES

Manly is another popular suburb for expats in Sydney to live in. Whilst many people are either pro Bondi or pro Manly, both suburbs have a completely different beach feel to them. With plenty of beautiful coastal walks to consider and loads of fantastic beaches & restaurants, you'll feel like you're on holiday living in Manly.

NORTHERN BEACHES IN SYDNEY GUIDES

After living in the Northern Beaches in Sydney for a couple of months, we fell head over heals for it. Known as one of the most desirable area to live in Sydney, there's a reason why. Think of amazing beaches, laid back suburbs and amazing shops to discover! We specifically love the area of Avalon for the sense of community and village vibe next to the ocean. 


Palm Beach also feels like a million miles away and although it's technically in Sydney, it would make a fantastic weekend from Sydney. It might be a bit too far to commute into the city as the traffic isn't great, but Palm Beach has such a tropical vibe going on, it's a Sydney suburb many people dream of living in.
