Neutral Bay

Neutral Bay is one of Sydney’s many harbour-side suburbs; located about two kilometres from the CBD. This suburb is located in the local government area of North Sydney council, with neighbouring suburbs including Cremorne Point, Cammeray and North Sydney.

The suburb obtained its name from the bay on the iconic Sydney Harbour.

Kurraba Point, which was initially a locality in Neutral Bay, was eventually established as a separate suburb, hence the name Neutral Bay. In its rich history, the bay was also referred to as neutral because it marked the point where foreign vessels would dock on arrival.

At the turn of the 20th century, Neutral Bay started attracting people who were fascinated by the then-popular Arts and Crafts style of architecture. One of the most amazing houses in this regard is Brent Knowle; a heritage-listed house that inspired many others in that era. Other homes worth noting include The Gables, Ailsa, Gundimaine House, as well as Keynsham.

The suburb’s shopping district is located along Military Road; known as Neutral Bay Junction. There are dozens of stores selling quality stuff. If you love retail therapy, you will undoubtedly appreciate the Big Bear Shopping Centre, one of the malls in the region. It is easily accessible by bus since the Sydney Buses‘ North Sydney Bus Depot is located right behind it.

One of Neutral Bay’s most notable landmarks is The Oaks Hotel, a popular meet-up venue for both locals and visitors. With bars, restaurants, event rooms and an awe-inspiring beer garden, there is every reason to enjoy your time at this hotel. Interestingly there’s an old oak tree on site that provides welcome shade during the sweltering summer season.

Other dining options include Thelma & Lousie Cafe that provides dining with a view, Bourke Street Bakery for freshly made pastries as well as the Garden Brasserie. The Neutral Bay Bar & Diner is also worth checking out.

The suburb’s proximity to the harbour means that ferry services are a convenient way to get around Sydney. Neutral Bay is serviced by private ferries as well as the Inner Harbour ferry service. For road users, take up the Warringah Freeway that leads to the CBD and Chatswood.
