Double Bay Ferry Wharf

 

Four kilometers to the east of Sydney’s central business district is Double Bay residential area.

The harbor side suburb is the administrative center of the Municipality of Woollahra. Double Bay is

home to many affluent residents in Sydney.

During the early years, Double Bay sheltered fishermen who frequented the harbor to catch fish.

In 1803, a relatively small 14 acre farm was established by the Steel family. Cattle and lettuce were

the main products of the farm. By 1814, the farm expanded to include the valleys leading towards Woollahra, Bellevue Hill, Point Piper and Bondi Junction.

Currently, Double Bay’s commercial area is along the New South Head Road. It extends outward to the neighboring streets: Knox Street, Bay Street and Cross Street. Double Bay’s commercial district is the most expensive and fashionable shopping center in Sydney. It features stylish boutique hotels, posh restaurants and classy cafes.

The Eastern Suburbs ferry services have a ferry wharf in Double Bay. The Eastern Suburbs ferry services connect the many wharves in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney mainly to the locality of Circular Quay through commuter ferry. Aside from Circular Quay and Double Bay, the wharves on the ferry services’ route include the Garden Island, Darling Point, Rose Bay and Watsons Bay.
