Rockdale is a suburb located in southern Sydney, just 13 short kilometers from the central business district. One perk about this centrally located suburb is a train station that quickly connects visitors to Sydney in approximately 15 minutes. It is also close to beautiful Brighton Beach and on the shores of Botany Bay. If you’re looking for an affordable rental outside the center of Sydney, check out Rockdale accommodation. Holiday rentals here offer peace, space, and good value.

Why Rockdale?

With its own train station, Rockdale offers easy connections to Sydney. While some travellers might be looking for the hustle of the big city, others might be looking for a more relaxing environment. When you choose Rockdale holiday rentals, big attractions like the Sydney Aquarium, the Chinatown neighborhood, and Darling Harbour will all be easily accessible. As a bonus, you won’t have to deal with the prices or noise associated with the bustling city.

What To See and Do

When you wake up in the morning, you can decide between exploring the streets and sights of Sydney or relaxing on the beach. Rockdale is located right on the shores of Botany Bay, whose beaches have won numerous awards for their cleanliness and beauty.

In addition to sunbathing, other popular activities here include sailing, canoeing, water skiing, and fishing. Visitors can choose between several beach areas including Brighton Le Sands, Monterey, and Ramsgate. In addition, the Georges River and Cooks River provide additional places for canoeing and kayaking.

While many people previously stayed in Rockdale only for its proximity to Sydney, the city is now developing its own attractions and character. For example, be sure to check out Lady Robinsons Beach, now home to restaurants and cafes that reflect the cultural diversity of this area. Cooks Cove is another local area being redeveloped.

Top Local Attractions

There are a few local attractions that make Rockdale particularly appealing. Facilities for locals and visitors include the Bexley Swimming Center, spacious parks for family picnics, sports fields, and the Rockdale City Library. This city is also home to a rich history and has many heritage buildings. History enthusiasts might want to head out on a history walk or heritage drive around Rockdale. Cycling is also popular, especially along scenic Lady Robinsons Beach.

Other local attractions are scheduled throughout the year. Many visitors travel to celebrate certain events and holidays such as Australia Day and the local community Fun Run/Walk. Check out the event calendar on the official Rockdale city website for details on upcoming events.

Why Rentals?

When it comes to Sydney accommodation, visitors have many choices. If you’re looking for some bang for your buck, holiday rentals are the best choice. In Rockdale, you will be choosing a rental in the middle of a vibrant community. Why share the beaches with a bunch of other tourists when you can set up shop on a serene local beach?

Rockdale is close to Sydney, and also far enough away. Kickstart your day with a bike ride along the water, and finish it with a glass of wine on your own private balcony. With a kitchen and lots of living space, your trip to the Sydney area will be a convenient and comfortable one.

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.
