Kensington accommodation

Kensington is six kilometres south-east of Sydney and is a New South Wales prime sporting and learning area as it's placed immediately south of the Sydney Football Stadium and the Sydney Cricket Ground, west of the Randwick Racecourse and the home of the Australian Golf Club, University of New South Wales and National Institute of Dramatic Arts. All of these nearby attractions make Kensington a very handy place to choose for your Sydney accommodation when you make your visit to the New South Wales capital.

Moore Park Kensington

Moore Park Kensington is where you'll find two of Sydney's biggest sporting stadiums, the Sydney Cricket Ground and the Sydney Football Stadium:

The Sydney Cricket Ground is the main ground in NSW for Cricket and Australian Football League (AFL) games. It was first opened in 1886 and has grown over the years till it can now cater for crowds of up to 46,000 people. It was also the main ground for Rugby League games until the construction of the Sydney Football Stadium in 1988.

The Sydney Football Stadium is the city's main rugby league venue but it's also used for rugby union and soccer games

Randwick Is More Than A Race Course

The Randwick Racecourse is one of Australia's top horse racing venues but it's also often used for large outdoor concerts and religious events. Pope Paul VI celebrated mass there in 1970, as did Pope John Paul II in 1995 when the Beatification of Saint Mary MacKillop took place.

The Exclusive Australian Golf Club

One of the most exclusive golf clubs in Australia is found at Kensington and that's the Australian Golf Club. It's grass courses are perfectly manicured and its water hazards give golfers of all levels of achievement considerable challenges all the way to the 18th hole.

Top Educational And Learning Establishments At Kensington

Kensington accommodation is always in demand because of the sporting and educational facilities in the district as well as it being so near Sydney itself. The are two biggest learning establishments, these are:

The University of New South Wales (UNSW). This is primarily a research-based university and one of the top universities in Australia. It's also one of the world universities that founded Universitas 21, a global network of research institutions.

The National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA). This is a major training centre for students of television, film and theatre. Admission to NIDA is very hard with only one successful applicant from every hundred who apply.

Kensington Is An Ideal Place To Stay For Sports Fans And Academics

Kensington holiday rentals are an ideal place for you to stay when visiting the learning establishments of the Institute of Dramatic Arts or the University of New South Wales. They offer comfortable living and independence with a feeling of being at home that you can never expect to get in hotel or motel accommodation.

The view on waking up each morning was just fantastic. I was working just up the road and the location was fantastic with a short walk to Kirribilli for all my shopping and dining needs.

1) Lovely apartment - pros: clean and comfortable with wifi. Cons: 1 dining room chair was broken and the freezer badly needed defrosting so it was not usable 2) great location - pros: within walking distance of Opera House, art gallery, botanic gardens and grocery/liquor store and restaurants. Great view of the city and can see the harbour from the balcony. In a nice and safe part of town. Cons: none 3) Host/staff - they were very accommodating and we were able to check in early after a long flight from Canada. Thanks. Would return and rent this apartment if ever back in Sydney. Highly recommended.

Unbeatable location but occasionally noisy around the weekend. Louvre side windows in one bedroom

Unbeatable location but occasionally noisy around the weekend. Louvre side windows in one bedroom didn't shut out external noise.
