Hi! I'm Irish originally but have been living in Australia for 7 years and am now lucky enough to be an Australian citizen also. I spent the first 5 years in Melbourne but have been in Sydney for the past 2 years and love it here. Alexandria is a really lovely place to live. It's full of little cafes and restaurants and you are right beside Surrey Hills, Newtown, Redfern, Erskenville, Glebe, City - it's a great location. The neighbourhood is super safe and public transport is great and it's easy to get anywhere very quickly. ( It is one stop on the train from the city )
I'm a big foodie so if you need any recommendations for restaurants let me know. If you like cooking at home also this is perfect for you as we have a fully equipped kitchen with all cooking appliances and also spices etc in the pantry.
