Kensington

Location & Overview

Kensington is the quiet achiever that is more than happy to make a little noise. Just 6 kilometres from the CBD and bordering Randwick and Centennial Park, Kensington offers some residential respite from the skyscrapers, while still brimming with some of the best arts, culture and dining in the city.

Traditional & History

The traditional custodians are the Bidjigal and Gadigal people of the Eora Nation. Established in the late 1880s, Kensington was modelled after its distinguished namesake in London and continues to pay homage through its street names, including Balfour Lane, named after former UK Prime Minister, Arthur Balfour.

Housing

While it may be known for its younger student demographic, Kensington's residential streetscape is all about balance. The mid-rise units that cater to students sit alongside classic Federation and modern double-storey properties for those city-slickers who crave the comfort of a family home. Not to mention, Kensington is about as close as you can get to the CBD while still enjoying a backyard.

Recreation and Amenities

Kensington's primary highlights include the University of NSW and the National Institute of Dramatic Arts, fostering a vibrant student culture and a dynamic arts and dining scene. Situated along the suburb's main thoroughfare, Anzac Parade, these institutions are complemented by various shops and genuine family-style restaurants. Adding to the suburb's allure, the Australian Golf Club, recognized as the oldest golf club in Australia, spans across its southwestern area.
