"Convenient inner city living - with great facilities nearby. Good for singles and couples."

Nicholson Street in Woolloomooloo is a street fairly typical of this area. It is attractive with historic (or made to appear so) buildings, and is quite leafy and green for an inner city area. This is something Sydney always has to offer – it, for the most part, is leafy and green – even when the housing is tightly packed, as in these older areas.

Most of the houses are old two story terraces, but there are some newer, quaint looking townhouses built in a corresponding (colonial) style – which I’m guessing was part of the council’s DA conditions.

The famous Tilbury Hotel (pub) is situated on the street. It’s very stylish and serves bar snacks and has a great restaurant and beer garden. There’s an open courtyard out the front and some green space on the other side of Nicholson Street – and these offer walking access to the other nearby streets and also to the harbour.

Taking advantage of this – the harbour is a short stroll and you emerge at Woolloomooloo Wharf where there is a hotel and upmarket restaurants (and some very, very expensive waterfront apartments – one of which is or was, owned by Russell Crowe). Wonderful Sydney institution – Harry’s Café De Wheels is close by here too. It has a great history – having started as a caravan serving pies in the 1930’s (which it still was when I regularly visited in the late 80’s and early 90’s).

Bus transport is good – but if you wanted to you could walk into the eastern part of the city at least. Just up from the wharf – with stairs, and now with a pedestrian bridge also – is The Domain and the Botanic Gardens.
