Haymarket is typical of Sydney’s CBD where Victorian terraces and cottages give The Rocks, Walsh Bay and Dawes Point a village feel, while high-rises everywhere else vie for their share of the views. Whatever your taste, the CBD now offers you harbour views with Eastern, Western or Northern sun on your balcony depending on whether you live at Circular Quay or Barangaroo. And if you can stand being away from the harbour, you can now look North, East or West across Hyde Park too. Properties from Park Street to Haymarket lose out on views but gain amenity, feeling like living in a large Asian city. Parks and recreation spaces include the Botanic Gardens, Hyde Park, Darling Harbour, Barangaroo Reserve and Prince Alfred Park. The commute to the office is measured in footsteps, unless you work outside the CBD in which case you have the benefit of travelling ‘against the traffic’.
