The under-the-radar harbour suburbDestination
City convenience without the rush. Seclusion without slowing down. Drummoyne’s position on the outskirts of the Inner West offers an enviably balanced lifestyle, right on the water.
with inner city edge
From the jetty and slipway at the end of the garden to the seven kilometres of the Bay Run, there are a number of active, waterfront attractions in Drummoyne. Parks, fitness stations and rowing clubs abound, with an outdoor pool and Leichardt’s ovals in easy reach. Not to mention the sailing club at the end of the crescent.
A short walk
to more variety
Just beyond the sailing club at the southern tip of St Georges Crescent, Birkenhead Point is both neighbourhood convenience and brand outlet. Names like Aquila, Bally and Furla sit alongside medical centres, supermarkets and cafés. But while the Coles and ALDI in this destination shopping centre are easy to get to, Harris Farm on Victoria Road offers an organic edge on variety and quality for aspiring gourmands.
While the establishments of Balmain and the city are in easy reach, thanks to the ferry wharf at the end of the street, it’s possible to eat out closer to home. Casual cafés and restaurants line Lyons Road, while tucked inside Harris Farm, Salt Meats Cheese stocks and serves the finest Italian-inspired ingredients for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Meanwhile, The Watershed Kitchen overlooking Iron Cove is perfect for a relaxed lunch after a circuit of the bay.
