Drummoyne is an inner-west suburb located in Sydney, six kilometres west of the CBD. It is the administrative centre for the City of Canada Bay, its local government area. This suburb is on the peninsula that sits between Five Dock Bay and Iron Cove.

It also neighbours the Parramatta River and Sydney Harbour. As expected, it boasts some of the most beautiful views, partly why the suburb is a popular destination.

History has it that the land was purchased back in 1853, before the construction of the iconic Drummoyne House. The house is an outstanding feat of architectural prowess; built in the Georgian Classical Style. The house earned its name from the family house over at Drummoyne in Scotland.

It is interesting to note that the suburb has remained true to its industrial heritage, something evident through its layout. Visit the main shopping street located along Victoria Road. One of the most amazing stores is The Party People – the country’s biggest party store.

This shopping street features specialty stores, restaurants as well as stores that stock up homewares. Additionally, visit the Birkenhead Point Outlet Centre, a small shopping centre located at Birkenhead Point. This mall features Coles Supermarket as well as some factory outlets.

For adventure lovers, nothing beats the thrill of water activities at the Drummoyne Olympic Pool; located on the banks of Iron Cove. This pool is a family-friendly destination because the chlorine is separated from the open water, with a 3-metre poolside deck with sweeping views of the cove area.

Do you love nature walks? Take on The Bay Run. This track is a popular route among walkers and joggers. The 7-kilometre trail that hugs the shoreline provides a scenic background to enjoy the region’s tranquillity. The path is also home to the Bay Run fun run held every year.

Drummoyne is a charming place to retreat to, and its proximity to the CBD makes it worth exploring. Click on the link below to find top accommodation options in Drummoyne.
