The quiet suburb of Woollahra (a prime area) has tree-lined residential streets, an English village-style shopping centre, and many fine examples of Victorian and Edwardian terraced houses. Many heritage houses along Queen Street are registered on the National Estate.

In its 220 hectares, Woollahra’s Centennial Park has gardens, ponds, picnic grounds, and recreational areas.

Some foreign consulates are in Woollahra, including those of Germany, Russia, Poland, Turkey and Serbia.
