Local area description

A bohemian paradise on the eastern edge of the CBD, Darlinghurst offers some of Sydney's best dining, coffee culture, nightlife, art galleries and boutique shopping. Formerly an underworld haunt, the suburb is now one of Sydney's most queer-friendly, and plays host to a vibrant community of young professionals living in renovated Victorian terraces and contemporary apartments.

Getting around

We highly recommend using ride-sharing services.
Check out the TripGo app for transport timetables.

Public transport
Almost everything is within walking distance, but buses to the city leave from Oxford St, just around the corner.

Ride sharing
Ride sharing apps are a safe and easy way to get around, especially later at night when public transport services are less frequent. Prices are about two-thirds that of taking a taxi, but may surge during bad weather or public events.
