We list some areas about North of Sydney in last post. We will list more areas in this post, so that you can find your ideal property.
East Sydney Folklore
East Sydneysiders are even more pretentious than North Sydneysiders. Residents of the Eastern Suburbs tend to be younger, yuppie types who are obsessed with their clothes, egos, self-image and money.
They love to talk about house prices.
They are seen as culturally pretentious too – eating in French restaurants and visiting art-galleries, though most could not tell a Vincent van Gogh from a Damien Hirst.
East Sydneysiders rent and share houses – not because they want to, but because they are forced to by the very high real estate prices in Sydney East.
East Sydney Facts
The average house price in the Eastern Suburbs is indeed high. The average for Randwick is about two and a quarter million dollars while the average in Woollahra is over $2.7 million (late 2016).
Most properties are part of a row or are flats / apartments. Average apartment prices are about $800,000 to $1,100,000.

The proportion of Australian born residents is about average for Sydney. British and New Zealanders are the biggest migrant groups.

People from the Shire are bible-bashers with lots of children who live in a 1950’s time warp. They are insular and never go outside the boundaries of the Shire.
