Originally known as Yarranabbi by the local Aborigines who lived there, the suburb earned its name in honour of Elizabeth Darling, the wife of Governor Ralph Darling, after whom Darling Harbour was named. Over the years, Darling Point has become an affluent suburb best known for its expensive real estate.

Some of the landmarks in Darling Point include Carthona and Craigend. The former is a beautiful heritage-listed sandstone mansion built in 1841. It features sweeping views of the Bay area and is expectedly one of the city’s most prestigious properties.

Craigend, on the other hand, is a mansion built in 1935 in an Art Deco style. Its design includes doors from an old mosque in Zanzibar alongside an ancient Japanese garden. Just like Carthona, this house is also heritage-listed. Additional heritage-listed houses include Babworth House, The Swifts, and Bishopscourt.

Away from the houses, art lovers can visit the Michael Commerford Gallery, which is accessible using New South Head Road. The gallery occasionally presents an array of exhibitions, so check the official website to learn more about this artsy destination.

McKell Park is a beautiful gem located at Sydney’s Harbour. With its verdant gardens nestled among towering trees, it is the perfect place to relax. The Canonbury Cottage, another heritage-listed house, makes for an excellent backdrop. Take some time to enjoy the panoramic views of the bridge to the west, too! McKell Park also provides easy access to the ferry stop.

Other attractions at Darling Point include Rushcutters Bay Park Playground, a good place to visit families, and Yarranbee Park. Whatever you do, make time to shop, dine and play in this popular suburb.
