"Beautiful waterfront, and historic location."

Victoria Street is one of the premier streets in the area, and probably even in all of the Eastern Suburbs. This is because the northern side houses front directly onto Camp Cove harbour beach – which is a magical place. It has a wide sweep of golden stand and usually very calm crystal clear water. It’s a terrific place for children. There’s a great cliff top walk around Lady Bay (nude beach), and up to Hornby Lighthouse.

The houses on the ocean side of Victoria are mostly enormous mansion types. Some of them are very modern (which doesn’t suit this stately area) others are beautifully restored and gracious building. The tiny cottages typical of this area occupy the other side of the street. Most are also beautifully renovated, and many are terraced. The area has a lot of interesting historical significance

Victoria Street is very narrow as are most of the streets here (many are one way, including Victoria) – and there is little parking –so congestion is a regular occurrence.

There are great facilities nearby including parks, The Gap, cliff-top walks, the infamous Watsons Bay Hotel, Doyles on the Wharf restaurant, other restaurants and shops.

There are city buses and ferries, though I believe the ferries are a limited service.
