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.

It was a quick walk up the street to catch the buses to Bondi Junction or the CBD; a quick walk down the stairs to begin the walk to Bronte; and a quick 10-minute walk to get to all the shopping and restaurants we needed. Mornings on the deck, with the first cup of coffee, we were often visited by lorikeets and one morning, a kookaburra! The apartment was generously sized with good wifi, and the kitchen was well-equipped for cooking. There was plenty of everything including sharp knives and cutting boards -- a little detail often overlooked in vacation rentals! And reading lights! The building has an elevator which meant carrying groceries wasn't a problem. We stayed comfortably without the need of a car. The beds were comfy and there were plenty of bath towels and a great, drenchy showerhead with lots of hot water. The toilet is separate from the bathroom, which makes it convenient for more than two people. The management team were easy to work with and key pick-up was simple. There is a parking space, but we didn't need it. It was perfect for us, and we'll be back!
