Balmain Sydney NSW 2041
Balmain is on the Balmain peninsula, opposite Millers Point at the
entrance to Darling Harbour. Although Balmain is only a couple of kilometres
from the centre of Sydney, the trip by road or on foot is about 6 km. Ferry
services connect Balmain and Balmain East to Sydney city, and road access is
via the Anzac Bridge and through Rozelle.
Darling Street runs through Balmain from the Balmain East ferry stop and
west into neighbouring suburb Rozelle. It is lined
with terrace houses, cafes, restaurants, and boutique shops. Like Rozelle,
Balmain has a remarkable number of small local pubs. Most of the housing is
terraces, and the area is popular with professionals.
There are several parks in the area, including Gladstone Park on Darling
Street and many others with bay views around Balmain East.
The Balmain Market is held at
St Andrews Congregational Church opposite Gladstone Park on Saturdays.
Stalls sell gifts, handicrafts, fashion, and homewares. Balmain is also
known as the birthplace of the Australian Labor Party in 1891.
