"Inner-city suburb that is very convenient"

Woolloomooloo is a beautiful inner-city suburb that overlooks part of Sydney Harbour. It is a short bus ride to the city or for those who are keen, it is a good thirty minutes stroll to get to Pitt Street Mall. There are many private residential housing and some public housing areas in this suburb. However, because of it's proximity to the city, many young, working professionals like living in Woolloomooloo. The convenience of this suburb also comes with a price tag with property and rental prices being on the higher end of the scale.

Over the years, many restaurants and cafes have opened up in Woolloomooloo. The waterfront provides a fantastic backdrop for these businesses. However, the first ever cafe and famous Sydney icon will have to be Harry's Cafe de Wheels. This is where you can find the famous Tiger pie with peas and mash. Harry's Cafe de Wheels have visitors from all over the world patronising this small cart in Woolloomooloo and over the years, many celebrities have visited this small cafe despite the lack of seats.
