The New Manhattan of Sydney

Waterloo has undergone a significant gentrification over the past decade, creating a dream suburb for those who demand the perks of inner-city living. With a population growth of more than 35% over the past five years, Waterloo has fast become an apartment friendly suburb. Excellent transport options are available with buses every 10 minutes connecting Waterloo to Sydney CBD, North Sydney and Bondi Junction. If you prefer the train, Redfern Station and Green Square Station are both within walking distance.

Due to its close proximity to Sydney CBD, Waterloo is a suburb of choice among young professionals, couples and students alike. Its diverse mix of cultures and personalities is also what makes the place so beautiful. The streets are some of the safest in Sydney and lined by a large range of delicious restaurants and cafes.

In Waterloo you can be immersed in a cosmopolitan urban living environment where you can walk, cycle, or take the train/metro everywhere. Danks Street in particular has attracted big names in the arts and design industries, while high-end designer homeware stores sit alongside independent art galleries in repurposed warehouses and new developments.

Waterloo also has easy access to neighbouring Moore Park, Centennial Park, a network of bike trails and Waterloo Oval, so locals can enjoy the great outdoors, as well as take in major sporting fixtures at the Sydney Cricket Ground and Sydney Football Stadium.

And you don’t have to go too far from home before you’re immersed in other Sydney gems, like the thriving food destination of Surry Hills or a cultural fix at Carriageworks. Neighbouring Moore Park is part of the greater Centennial Parklands and offers locals a place to stretch out.

Waterloo is defined by its moden low-density and high-density apartment buildings, so there’s always an energetic vibe across the neighbourhood.
