Destination guide

Feel cosmopolitan and carefree in Rozelle

The Sydney suburb of Rozelle gets its name from the cheerfully coloured parrots roaming the area ("Rose Hill parrots" morphed into "Rozelle" over the years), and the town gives visitors a distinct sense of modern convenience matched with a respect for nature and wildlife. Rozelle vacation rentals are set near the bay and the popular suburbs or Balmain and Lilyfield, and are just a few minutes from the centre of Sydney. Yet the town's parks, gardens and harbour-side walkways ensure that visitors never feel removed from sun, sand and relaxation.

Things to do

Bridges that arc over the water and into the past

It makes sense that a community set between 2 bays would know how to do bridges right. If you're lucky, you'll find one of the Rozelle vacation rentals with a view of 1 of the area's 2 impressive examples. Iron Cove Bridge connects Rozelle to Drummoyne and flaunts its original 1882 framework. The Anzac Bridge, linking Rozelle with Pyrmont, features 2 bronze sculptures commissioned in memory of the soldiers who fought in World War II. Both structures create startling silhouettes against bright blue skies and the Sydney skyline.


Family friendly festivities happen weekly in Rozelle

Any local worth his or her salt will send visitors to the Rozelle Markets, the best in Sydney. They're set up every Saturday and Sunday on the grounds of Rozelle Public School and feature dozens of stalls selling vintage furniture, clothes, jewellery and local produce. Kids who might be less interested in shopping will be plenty interested in the live music. The Bay Run is another great option for couples, solo travellers or families. The 7-kilometre-long pathway follows the water's edge and provides walkers, runners and bikers with views of mangroves and a slew of historic buildings.


No need to don your rose-coloured glasses in Rozelle

Rozelle enjoys a humid subtropical climate marked by warm summers, cool winters, tons of sunshine and a reasonable amount of rainfall throughout the year. There's actually less rain during winter and spring, which is the least popular travel season in Rozelle. You can take advantage of sunnier skies and smaller crowds at the markets, and you might find lower rates on Rozelle vacation rentals. Low winter temps are in the teens, and the warmest summer days top out around the mid-20s. In short, Rozelle feels pretty rosy all year long.

Natural highlights

For nature lovers, Rozelle rises to the occasion

Visitors in search of a breath of fresh air are always happy in Rozelle. Perhaps its proudest natural resource is King George Park, set right on the waterfront and with a view of Iron Cove Bridge. Aside from its many picnic areas and playgrounds, the park features areas of preserved native grasses and bush, plus mature Morton Bay Fig trees and hidden sandy beaches. Callan Park is known as the site of a stately historic home, but its garden alone is worth the trip, with an assortment of subtropical plants and trees.
