The small harbour side suburb of Rushcutters Bay is located 3 kilometres east of the Sydney CBD in the local government area of the City of Sydney. It has a population of about 2,200, 5% of whom are under 18 and 20% of whom are over 60. The main age group of the suburb is between 25 and 50.

It is a suburb of high and medium density housing offering a wide range of prices for apartments. There are small one bedroom flats, right up to luxurious penthouses. There are also a lot of rental properties – a favourite place for the young to rent because of its proximity to the city.

It is a yachting centre of Sydney. The prestigious Cruising Yacht Club is located nearby.

There are two beautiful parks on the foreshore of Sydney Harbour. They are the Reg Bartley Oval where sports such as rugby, soccer and cricket are played as well community events such as concerts and Rushcutters Bay Park which has a playground, tennis courts and a café. These parks are very popular with both Sydneysiders and tourists.

Sydney Stadium, where many boxing matches and concerts were held – the Beatles performed there in 1964 – was in Rushcutters Bay but was demolished to make way for the cross city tunnel.
