"Beautiful area, panoramas in every direction."

Military Road stretches for most of the Eastern Suburb’s northern peninsula. It begins where Campbell Parade finishes – climbing to the north of Bondi and ends at Old South Head Rd in the exclusive suburb of Vaucluse.

Dover Heights is a mix of smaller suburban houses on unremarkable streets on its lower western slopes, and either average houses or amazing upgraded properties, with amazing views on the eastern cliffs fronting the Pacific Ocean. There are also many spectacular views to be had from properties on the western side towards the top of Dover Heights. Some of these have a broad panorama over the city, including Sydney Harbour and the Bridge.

Likewise Dudley Page Park on Military Rd in the heart of Dover Heights, has these wonderful views to the west. It’s a fantastic spot for evening picnics, particularly on New Year’s Eve, when it’s very popular. The views may be fairly distant – but spectacular non-the-less, and far from the madding crowds.

This section of Dover Heights has a few shops. They are now limited to a liquor store, a hairdresser, and I believe a dentist. There used to be a good butcher and grocery store here, but now for further shopping, heading a few blocks north to the shopping precinct on Old South Head Rd is an easy option.
