Vaucluse
Vaucluse 
A tunnel entry to Nielsen Park. Vaucluse is a wealthy, safe and conservative suburb. 

Vaucluse, Sydney (east)

Leafy, hilly, affluent, expensive houses, private schools, big parks, incredible views. Vaucluse is very much establishment. It’s about the closest thing you’ll get to a gated community without actually being one.This place attracts the more mature person, or someone with a healthy stock portfolio. Vaucluse is brimming with natural beauty - parks, historic homesteads, great beaches, bush walks. And it gets its name from a kidnapper! (More information below and to your left <<<)

If this suburb were a shoe, it would be a Bally and a sailing shoe

 

Vaucluse is not party central, but more a place you'd happily take your dog for a walk on the weekends. 

 

It is also a place where manners and status have a role to play. Which is ironic given the suburb takes its name from an historic homestead, Vaucluse House, built by a man called Sir Henry Brown Hayes. In 1802, Hayes was punished for kidnapping the daughter of a rich Irish banker, and transported from the UK to New South Wales as punishment. The NSW Governor thought Hayes was a trouble maker, and in order to get him out of Sydney, was allowed to buy land a few kilomteres away.

 

Vaucluse is now one of the five most expensive suburbs in Sydney. 

 

Parking is usually fine. The vibe: Prue and Trude at home. Shoe equivalent: sailing shoes, Bally. Would suit: ages 45+, executives, professionals, families. Location: harbour and beach. Postcode: 2030.  Distance: 7.5km from the city centre. Direction: East.
