One Of The Best Suburbs In Sydney

Balmain is a coastal inner-west suburb located just five kilometres west of Sydney. Thanks in part to the Australian Labor Party being formed in Balmain in 1891, the suburb has huge historical significance in the region. 

History aside, Balmain is a local favorite when choosing a place to live in Sydney, and for good reason. The suburb sits on the water with lovely views and boasts an leisurely and easy commute time to Sydney's centre. Yet Balmain's real benefits don't come from its prime location, but from its character. Balmain has one of the best communities in Sydney with a strong neighbourhood feeling. With a lively pub scene, a terrific market, and plenty of cosmopolitan appeal, Balmain feels like a community, not a suburb. If you truly want a taste of local culture while on holiday, you won't find a better place to stay than Balmain.

Stroll Down Darling Street

The main street in Balmain is Darling Street, where you'll find terrific cafes, bars, and restaurants alongside local shops and stores. Don't miss the Victoire French Bakery for some exquisite sourdough or French cakes. Bertoni Cassalinga is an excellent stop if you're in the mood for a cafe visit. In the morning, locals recommend Our Place for a delicious brekky that can't be beat. Romana is another excellent choice for breakfast.

If you're staying at a rental with a kitchen, don't miss TJ's Butcher for meats or The Gourmet Grocer for basic groceries. Finally, if you're on Darling Street on a Saturday, you shouldn't miss the Balmain Market.

The Balmain Market

The Balmain market focuses on the homemade, the unique, the vintage, and the rare. Why buy furniture from a store when you can buy one that's homemade? Why buy mass-produced art when you can find handmade crafts here at the market? You'll find toys, bread, and other goods along with other indulgent services like massages and tarot card readings. For a taste of Sydney away from the tourist attractions, come to the Balmain Market and shop with the locals.

Sydney Accommodation In Balmain

Balmain has some of the most extensive accommodation options in Sydney, but the options for Balmain holiday rentals vary wildly. From designer four-bedroom homes to modest one-bedroom and studio apartments, there's something for every budget. Some Balmain accommodation reflects the neighbourhood's working-class roots, while others represent the contemporary stylings of the suburb's gentrification. The neighbourhood is serviced by both the public ferry and the local bus system and almost all rentals are within walking distance of a public transit service.

Whether you're bringing the whole family or you're taking a romantic getaway with your loved one, you're bound to find something to suit your needs in Balmain.

4 of 5
Hip loft just blocks from Hyde Park. The place is well cared for, clean and supplied with hotel-quality amenities. One downside: no air conditioning. The place has windows on three sides of a big room and on the fourth floor so breezes can flow through and this proved surprisingly effective. Great restaurants and shops nearby and just a 10 min walk to Museum station.
