Edgecliff is a small, high-end suburb of Sydney NSW. Its highly sought-after proximity to the city and the fantastic views of Port Jackson offered by Edgecliff, property prices in the area are premium. The suburb literally sits on the edge of a cliff, giving Edgecliff its name.
Edgecliff is serviced by buses, as well as the Edgecliff railway station, which opened in 1979 after the South Coast and Eastern Suburbs line was extended from Edgecliff Town Hall to Bondi Junction.
The cliffs of Edgecliff were thoroughly quarried by the original European settlers of the area. Today, the residents of the suburb come from primarily English, Australian, Irish and Scottish cultural backgrounds. Many historic buildings still stand – including the Dower House. The gorgeous sandstone Victorian Gothic Revival house is a perfect example of the area’s original architecture.
