Randwick

Randwick is one of the upmarket suburbs in Sydney, located about six kilometres from the CBD. It is also the administrative centre for the local government area of the City of Randwick. Its location makes it a part of the Eastern Suburbs region.

The suburb’s name was inspired by Randwick Village; a quaint location in England.

Interestingly, Simeon Pearce, who once became the Mayor of Randwick, was born in that English Village and grew up there before moving to Australia in the mid-19th century. Also, the suburb has a rich history and is popular for its scenic natural beauty and several heritage buildings.

One of the most elegant heritage buildings in Randwick is known as the Verger’s Residence. Its distinct Gothic style coupled with its use as the original Borough Chambers makes it one of the most notable buildings in the suburb. The Prince of Wales is yet another noteworthy landmark in the suburb. What started as a home for impoverished kids was converted to a military hospital and has since been used as a medical facility.

The suburb’s commercial area is located on Belmore Road and features many retail stores alongside two key shopping malls. These are Randwick Plaza and the Royal Randwick Shopping Centre. These are ideal options for visitors looking for some retail therapy in this mostly residential suburb. Avoca Street is also a popular choice for shoppers, and it also marks the location of the Coach and Horses Hotel.

This hotel is an excellent option for accommodation, in part because it has existed for more than a century. The Spot is another establishment that offers the best food, entertainment and recreation. It is also home to the Randwick Ritz Cinema – perfect for theatre lovers.

Natural enthusiasts are not left behind as there are lots of fun things to do in Randwick.
