Rozelle is a leafy village on the Balmain Peninsula with a quirky mix of art galleries, flea markets and some of Sydney’s best cafes and pubs. The suburb has an eclectic mix of property types with large apartment developments along the foreshores of Iron Cove to homes tucked away in narrow back streets typical of the 1800s and early 1900s. With an abundance of waterfront parkland including Bridgewater Park, Callan Park and King George Park and being only 4 kilometers west of the CBD the area is home to professional couples, young families and empty nesters.
It is a popular destination on weekends for scrumptious brunches and coffee dates that lead into an afternoon of meandering through the Saturday and Sunday markets at the Rozelle Primary School or the speciality stores along Darling Street. Rozelle is equally as good in the evening with quality restaurants, bars and pubs to explore.
Lots of families can be seen at Easton Park and King George Park cheering on their children with an array of sporting ventures. The King George Park adjoins the popular Bay Run which loops 7 kms around Iron Cove and provides excellent running and bike paths. There are fantastic childcare and kindergarten centres in the area, some of which are non-profit organisations run by the support of local businesses and families. Other educational institutes are the Rozelle Primary School, Balmain High School, Inner Sydney Montessori School and Sydney College of the Arts.
Getting around town is easy with direct bus and ferry connections to Circular Quay and the city with travel time approximately 10 minutes. Birkenhead Shopping Point is also easily accessed by bus or a short drive across the Drummoyne Bridge. Rozelle is the perfect suburb for those seeking a village lifestyle with a strong emphasis of community spirit.
