Placid vistas characterize Rose Bay and Dover Heights, tranquil waterfront escapes in Sydney's east suburbs. Their residents trade late nights for frothy lattes and busy errands for leisurely walks along the water. Rose Bay and Dover Heights don't boast any big-name beaches, and that might hint at why the area is so decidedly serene—tourists tend to head to the shores of its southern neighbors like Bondi Beach and Tamarama.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
