A leafy suburb on Sydney's North Shore, Neutral Bay's calm demeanor reflects its name. Lunching ladies, avid exercisers, and ambitious office workers enliven Military Road by day and relax in neighborhood-favorite pubs by night. Wander your way through Neutral Bay's winding side streets and glimpse sailboats floating through pockets of foliage. The nearer you get to the waterfront, the quieter this secluded-feeling neighborhood becomes—all the better to focus on homework and study for spelling bees.See 51 places to stay Save this neighborhood
