"Ask and You Receive in Annandale"

Where else this close to the global city of Sydney can you find in inner suburbia such a great expanse of green space, waterfront walks, excellent coffee, dining options and boutique shopping on Booth Street, plus a community feel second to none? I've lived and worked here and in my 15 years residency across this city (all sides of the bridge) you can't find a better place to call home, in my view.
Neighbours still know each other and enjoy evening refreshers, dog parks are widely available - you won't have to take pooch off to the vet after an afternoon play session being attacked at random, they're all very well behaved here (though there is an excellent vet in the area!) Home-wise, choose from apartments, architectural homes, studios and terraces with a mix of done and ready-to-be-done up properties that are tightly held. We all know how good it is here!
If you're looking for the pub it's right on the corner (two of them actually) offering family options, and since Johnsons Creek reserve's rewilding, after you indulge it's just a few hills down on your walk through to Rozelle Bay foreshore to work it off. Balmy summer evenings spent in Bicentennial Park - it'sSydney living. Ole!

"Suburbia feel on the doorstep of the city"

My partner and I moved to Annandale a year ago. Since moving we have absolutely fallen in love Annandale. It feels like like you're in suburbia while being a 15 minute drive to the CBD. The streets are wide and leafy, the Blackwattle Bay is beautiful and provides lovely views and walks, there are plenty of parks to relax and exercise, and plenty of restaurants and cafes to enjoy. The only issue with Annandale is the public transport to the city is quite bad, there is no real quick way to get to the city with public transport, especially if you work around Circular Quay.

"Leafy greeny suburb near the CBD"

Just bought a house and love it - moved from lower north shore where we seemed about 20yrs too young. Annandale definitely has that boutique village lifestyle, walking distance to shops, cafes, post office, bank, primary schools, pubs. Short stroll from where we live to Jubilee Park, Tramsheds, Rozelle & Blackwattle Bay. Seems like everyone has a dog, very heart warming suburb. Buses from Booth st to the CBD and surrounding areas, Uber is super quick / cheap for the surrounding nightlife in Glebe, Newtown, Surry Hills. Only downside is that you are close to busy flight paths in Leichhardt, and some smaller planes do fly over (even in north Annandale). Apart from that it's a great place to be.

"Annandale - the best of everything..."

Annandale is a prime spot of the Inner West suburbs, the homes are beautiful here with lots of character & charm & history attached. The village lifestyle is warm & welcoming, I feel the area really has it all, it's 5 mins to the city & close to the buzz of Kings Street, Newtown & Norton Street, Leichhardt with more space to move. The schools here are fantastic for those looking to find their permanent home for raising a family. If you wish to go out in the evening for dinner there are plenty of local eateries to choose from. I give Annandale a huge thumbs up & I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone looking to live in a premier location in the Inner West of Sydney.

"Best of both worlds"

Annandale is a leafy pretty wide-street suburb that's still a great buy in my opinion. All of Annandale is nice, but I particularly like the north section (near Rozelle Bay). It's quieter here (less planes - in fact, I barely notice them) and it has a great bushy vibe thanks to efforts of the council and volunteer groups. Also has fantastic parks and it's an easy walk to the harbour. Hard to believe this paradise is so close to the CBD!

Annandale has a wonderful, friendly vibe with people of all ages and many young families. And I love the villagey feel, great shops and cafes. If it weren't for the small land sizes, the place would be very expensive. Yes, it's hard to have a big backyard for the kids here, but it doesn't matter; several family-friendly parks make this unimportant. I also hear that the primary schools are very good. (Child-free myself.) Annandale is a great alternative to Balmain: you get the heritage houses and cafe culture (and close to harbour), but less busy and crowded, with greater ease of parking/driving due to wider streets. In fact, my big-car husband refuses to return to "that side of Victoria Road" due to the narrow streets on Balmain pensinsula. (As a bike-rider, I really appreciate the extra quiet wide streets of Annandale. And I often see kids on their bikes around here.)

Annandale is also a great place to invest in; no worries about finding good tenants, being so close to the CBD, Sydney University and RPAH. Overall, it's hard to find a negative.

"Wide tree-lined streets, classic terraces and character homes"

Annandale is one of the most sought after areas of Sydney's Inner West. The area north of Booth Street is locally known as North Annandale and is the most desirable part of the suburb. Revolver Cafe on Annandale Street is the pick of the cafes. There are more cafes and shops on Booth Street although there is a better selection of shops in adjoining Leichhardt and at Broadway.

"Village serenity in the city"

Am I really only 3km from the city- I can see the city from many streets with amazing vistas and drive there in 5min but I can't hear it.
A wonderful mix of historical and best of modern renovation overall a very friendly, ecclectic up and coming area- Still a sydney secret. Like balmain but with parking! Have a coffee in booth st then Spend a day walking, riding down the many amazing streets to bicentennial park and sit by the water overlooking the city. Simply the best!

"Nice suburb that is close to Sydney University"

Camperdown is a nice inner city suburb that is within easy walking distance to Sydney University. Additionally, it is only a ten minutes' bus ride to Sydney CBD. There are many terrace houses, residential units and parks around this area. The streets can sometimes get pretty narrow and due to its proximity to the hospital and university, it can sometimes be difficult finding parking.

Additionally, depending on which side of Camperdown you live at, it is only a short stroll to Glebe Point Road or King Street of Newton. There are plenty to eat and do at both these places; from restaurants to shops and etc. Missenden Road at Camperdown can get pretty busy during the mornings too. This is a two-lane road with traffic going in both directions and this road runs parallel to the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. Be prepared for the traffic lights and pedestrian crossings along Missenden Road.
