Welcome to Eastside, Sydney’s cosmopolitan alter ego. When you look at a map of Sydney you will see that Sydney’s CBD has a city-sized neighbour just a stone’s throw to the east. Eastside Sydney is comprised of Woolloomooloo, Potts Point, Kings Cross, Darlinghurst, and Surry Hills, all of which formed part of the East Sydney electorate from the 1900s – 1960s.
Eastside has long been the home of both scoundrels and dreamers; from the razor gangs that fought over sly grog in the 1920s, to the
post-WW2 immigrants who added countless flavours to the cultural milieu, Eastside is a melting pot of people, arts, culture, retail and nightlife. Eclectic, independent, queer: if your idea of a true adventure is more than just climbing the Harbour Bridge, then you’re holding the Golden Ticket. It is fantastically easy to get here! We are serviced by three railway stations and it’s just a short jaunt across the parks (Hyde and the Domain) from the city centre or under the viaducts from Haymarket to a community of fascinating people ready to befriend you.
