Five star locations to live in New South Wales

Most will only ever see these suburbs in our dreams or when out sightseeing. It’s no surprise that they are all found in Sydney after it was proclaimed the second most expensive city in the world. While most of us will never own a home in such luxurious and expensive locales as these, one can always dream and picture a life that could be rather than a life that is.

Point Piper

The most expensive suburb in Australia; a home here will cost you a whopping $7 million. It is found in Sydney’s east, by the harbour and Seven Shillings Beach, 6 km away from Sydney’s CBD. It is small and exclusive with no commercial centres or tourist attractions (unless you count the gigantic residences). Point Piper is also home to one of the world’s ten most expensive streets – Wolseley Rd – with each square metre costing $20,900.

Watsons Bay

With its absolutely stunning views overlooking Manly and the Sydney Harbour Bridge and home to The Gap – a famed ocean cliff that overlooks the Pacific Ocean – it’s no surprise that this place makes this list. This suburb, situated on a peninsula not far from the CBD, has houses averaging in price at $6.5 million. It has rich history spanning from the time of Aborigines to European settlement to WWII. Not many tourist attractions exist here, except maybe a legal nudist beach, if you’re into that kind of thing.

Centennial Park

The suburb is a small one, on the western fringe of the parkland with houses that will cost you around $5 million, with little wonder. The parkland and namesake that neighbours it is a great tourist attraction and a beautiful natural respite from the urban jungle. With about seven houses in this suburb listed as heritage sites, it’s little wonder people can charge the insane prices they do here. Under strict regulations, every house built here is of exceptional architectural quality.

Palm Beach

Now this is the reason people come to Australia! The northern beaches of Sydney provide some of the best views in Australia – both of the natural landscape and celebrities. A hotspot for celebrities for investment or just visiting, you’ll often see them in the summertime as they come down for a break. Definitely a five star suburb, you’ll need $2 million for a house here. Home to some of the most affluent people in Australia, the small suburb of around 1,600 people, isn’t as exclusive as previous suburbs mentioned with cottages and smaller homes available. With that said, the properties this suburb has to offer here don’t come cheap.


For those of us not made of money, here is a more realistic option. Less of a suburb and more of a region, Illawarra encompasses Wollongong, Shellharbour, Shoalhaven and the town of Kiama. Immediately south of Sydney, this coastal region is relaxed and beautiful. Stockland house and land packages in Illawarra, NSW won’t cost you a fortune and allow the average person the equivalent of a five star location to live in.
