Randwick

Convenient and convivial, Randwick is a spiritedly pragmatic mix of students and professionals in Sydney's southeast.

A patchwork of university students, center-city commuters, and local bakers and butchers, Randwick feels conventional without feeling commonplace. A few miles from the CBD, it’s a convenient hub and convivial meeting spot where it’s nice to say hi to your neighbor from your apartment balcony and hail the bus driver before the light turns green. Randwick’s not swanky or chic, but its proximity to beaches, parks, and good nature make it hard to pass up.
