"Lots of options for the family..."

Bowral Street, Kensington is a short street that manages to fit rather a lot into it. This includes its housing styles. There are apartments, Victorian terrace houses – both attached and unattached – and workers cottages – likewise. Some are really beautifully renovated – especially the workers cottages with the iron lace-work on the verandas.

Also on the street is a large church– I believe it may be Greek Orthodox, but I may be wrong – and Kensington Public Primary School.

Randwick Racecourse is just a brief distance away, and Bowral Street runs on to Anzac Parade. At this point there are numerous eateries – several Asian restaurants, a pizzeria, and some curry houses. Famous kitchen, dining and homewares store – Peter’s of Kensington is just up the road.

Bus transport is fantastic and frequent here – and UNSW and NIDA are a hop, skip and a jump away – easy to walk to for energetic teenagers. Buses also run to the eastern beaches – and the city – so it’s the best of all worlds.

Grocery shopping though, in the immediate vicinity is somewhat lacking, so a driving trip would be needed for that (though I recommend internet grocery shopping). Royal Hospital for Women is close by in Randwick – as is the specialist medical centre.
