Unique Scenery

A unique scenery - water is a bit gross though. Good to just chill on the sand/grass - or on the bridge which is breezy and nice.

Love love love Redleaf. Hard to get a comfy spot to lay your stuff sometimes. Came one late arvo and under the trees were stink bugs everywhere! Not sure where they've come from. It's a shame the cafe doesn't stay open later though.

I visit the pool in the early morning with my daughter and her teenage son, who both gave it a big tick. I sat and watched them and the other swimmers and was impressed. It is a large pool in the harbour with two floating platforms and fenced off with a walking path around it. The view of the harbour... More

This harbor pool is a excellent example of why Sydney is so great. Yes summer time here can get very busy, so planning your time to visit is best.. Ok I live near by so I am spoiled in this way, but it is 1 place I hope visitors have the option to visit even during cooler months. Head there... More

Essentially a fenced off section of the harbour with beach entry. Big enough to have space on a busy day and to do a decent swim. Pontoon in the middle to sun yourself and places for the kids to jump in. Cafe serve decent coffee too.

we came here with our 4 months old as the waves as small enough for him to not get washed away. there were alot of families enjoying the small bay. we managed to get a parking spot at the council chambers. was just a little tricky for us with the amount of stairs and a baby.

This is a superb beach spot and one not to be missed if you fancy a some swim/seaside action so close to the city. The swimming area is fenced off so you can be sure of no bull sharks getting through! The walk way around the pool and pontoons are lots of fun to jump off. The area is clean... More

Went here on new years day and was expecting it to be rammed. It was busy but not at all crowded. The fenced water is a great option for a safe and enjoyable swim, and the beach is clean. Friendly atmosphere and safe environment. We happily left our stuff on the beach while swimming (not necessarily recommending that, mind). Good... More

Staying in Double Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Double Bay
Located in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, Double Bay is a one of the city's most beautiful harbour neighbourhoods. Designer boutiques provide a decadent shopping experience and dress some of the most beautiful people in Sydney. Sit down at one of the open air cafes for a latte or a meal and enjoy the people-watching. Double Bay was once an exclusive enclave for an older, elite population, but new restaurants, late night bars, hotels and cafés are attracting a younger, vibrant mix, making Double Bay the place to be on the harbour.
