The marina is stunning from every angle and provides the best vantage point for picture perfect views of the city. There are also several stunning beaches within the suburb.

The main commercial precinct is lined with historical architecture and contains beautiful boutiques, cafes and some of the best restaurants and bars in the city. The bayside suburb has a sophisticated and urban style, but has managed to retain a charming country feel. It is well worth the trip.
