In the lap of luxury on Sydney's North Shore

Located on Sydney's North Shore, the posh neighborhood of Kirribilli sits directly across from the CBD, with views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the iconic Sydney Opera House. It's well-connected to the heart of the city, thanks to the ferry docks just below the bridge, offering regular service. A slew of wine bars, cafes, and charming pubs wind among the historic homes and gorgeous park spaces. Book a stunning Kirribilli vacation rental with expansive harbor views, and get a feel for just how lovely Sydney's other half lives.

Explore the 'hood by land or by sea... er, bay

Kirribilli is steeped in history and architecture, so a guided walking tour is the perfect way to get to know your surroundings. If you'd rather be your own guide, you can easily lead your crew to explore the neighborhood however you please. Stroll past the stunning mansions and sprawling homes, pop into the upscale shops and boutiques, or grab lunch at any of the restaurants nearby. If you prefer to spend your time on or near the water, opt for a harbor cruise,, which will offer stunning views of the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

The perfect excuse to study up on Australian government

Along with its reputation as one of Sydney's poshest hoods, Kirribilli Point is also home to the Australian Prime Minister and the governor-general. Spot the Gothic revival-style Kirribilli House, built in 1846, and see where the PM hangs out when in town. Practically next door, you'll also find Admiralty House, which is home to the Governor General. Though you can't get super close, you can easily pass by on the water, so opt for a boat tour around the harbor, then brush up on your Aussie history back at your Kirribilli vacation rental.

Pro tip: don't forget the seasons are opposite Down Under!

September through November (spring) and March through May (fall) are both ideal seasons for booking Kirribilli vacation rentals, thanks to moderate temps and more manageable crowds. Visiting during these shoulder seasons also means more affordable pricing, when compared to the summer months. December through February (Oz's summer) is certainly Sydney's peak, thanks to brilliant sunshine, long days, and easy access to the local beaches and swimming spots. Winter in Kirribilli starts in May and lasts through August, and though it's fairly mild, it can be gray.

From urban oasis to beachfront surf spot in almost no time

Located on Sydney's North Shore, the Kirribilli peninsula certainly benefits from its harborside locale. Its placement offers easy access to Sydney's top attractions, whether you're traveling by foot, rail, bus, or ferry boat. Many of the green parks that line the coast are ideal for taking a walk or a bike ride. Alternatively, thanks to the ease of Sydney public transit, you can find yourself surfing at Bondi Beach or visiting the animals at Taronga Zoo in no time. For a true urban escape, head to the nearby Blue Mountains National Park and feel like you're in another world.
