It’s home to everyone from young professionals who love its proximity to the CBD and families who adore its safe, relaxed environment to retirees who enjoy the convenience of village living.
Cremorne is bisected by the busy main artery of Military Road, on and around which you’ll find an eclectic array of trendy cafes, multicultural restaurants, provedores, small bars and the famous Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace, a stunning 1930s Art Deco cinema complete with an original wurlitzer pipe organ.
Just 6 kilometres from the city, Cremorne’s leafy, hilly streets are lined with apartments from a variety of eras, from classic Art Deco styles through to luxurious contemporary boutique developments. Character semis, freestanding homes and modern masterpieces are predominantly found on the north side of the suburb, which is less densely populated and quieter. Here you’ll also find a handful of glorious parks and playgrounds, from Grasmere Reserve to glorious Primrose Park on the shores of Middle Harbour, with its sportsground, tennis courts and walking trails.
To the south lies Cremorne Point, now a separate suburb in its own right. Enjoy an idyllic walk around this peninsula, which culminates in Robertsons Point Lighthouse at its tip. Residences nestled along the leafy streets of this exclusive enclave capture some pretty spectacular harbour and city views, with grandstand vistas of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House in all its glory. One of the finest properties here is the heritage-listed Arts & Crafts mansion, Belvedere, designed by Alexander Stewart Jolly in 1919. Locals love to sun themselves by Maccallum Pool, a harbour pool dating back to the 1920s and a wonderful slice of history. Ferry wharves lie on both sides of the peninsula, affording commuters a scenic trip into the city.
Highly regarded private co-ed schools Redlands and SCECGS Redlands Junior Campus are found in Cremorne, while the neighbouring suburbs of Neutral Bay and Mosman also play host to a number of sought-after public and private schools.
