The ideal location for your long term (3 month min) stay in Sydney a short ferry ride from the city. Over water, we are only 1km from the Sydney Harbour Bridge!

The ferry will take you to Darling Harbour, North Sydney or Circular Quay every 30 minutes - enjoy scenic commutes to the city under the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Travelling to all your favourite Sydney icons doesn't get any better than this! Balmain East ferry wharf is only metres away and so is the bus stop. Regular bus routes to the Inner West and 20 minutes to the Queen Victoria Building, Pitt St Mall the central shopping district of Sydney or Town Hall (train station).

From your apartments, you will have panoramic harbour views and modern facilities, as well as access to some of the locals' favourite weekend markets, cafes, patisseries (Adriano Zumbo) and heritage pubs in Balmain Village and Rozelle, mostly located along Darling St. Writers, politicians, actors and living legends roam our bohemian suburb so a polite conversation can turn into a marvellous story to tell back home! Take home a souvenir from one of our many renowned specialty stores and galleries - Hunt Leather, Gourmet Grocer, Herbies Spices and Kate Owen Aboriginal Art.

Balmain Wharf Apartments are just four exclusive contemporary apartments within a sensitively restored 1840's sandstone building handed down from its original owners. This building was the first pub on the Balmain peninsula and was built by Sydney's first migrants. Originally the site of the Shipwright Arms Hotel, this was a gathering place for ferrymen and tugboat operators for almost a century. Lovers of architecture and social history will love our heritage walks and one-of-a-kind places like the Dawn Fraser outdoor pool.

Directly surrounding our apartments are parklands for morning walks and excellent sunrise photo opportunities. Watch out for the cruise liners that sail past during low tide!
