Darling Point (a prime area) is an elite harbourside neighbourhood in the Eastern Suburbs. While many original mansions remain, contemporary apartment buildings, townhouses and duplex developments have gone up recently. Darling Point is quite crowded now, but properties are still very expensive owing to lovely views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House.

Darling Point’s Saint Marks Church is an attraction in itself and for years has been the choice venue for society weddings. Elton John’s first wedding was held here.
