Moving to Sydney. Best Place to Live?

North Sydney office then try to stay north of the bridge. Too much traffic to travel over it each day to work, though the trains are reliable to Nth Sydney. But plenty of lovely places to live near there: Waverton, Wollstonecraft, Kirribilli, Cremorne, Neutral Bay would all be good places to start. is also a good site to start looking.

Moving to Sydney. Best Place to Live?

Anyone thinking Sydney farmers' markets are really farmers' markets needs to be a bit careful. Few - even the biggest - have many (if any) farmers or growers. The exception is the Hawkesbury Harvest markets on at Castle Hill, Rouse Hill (outer NW suburbs) and in front of St Mary's Cathedral in the city on Fridays. Even then, they're pretty relaxed about whom they allow in. Almost every other one, including the big Good Living Market at Darling Harbour (once a month) are loaded with people buying at the wholesale market and reselling or supplementing their offerings with extras from wholesalers. Never trust a market in Sydney selling mangoes or bananas or pineapples, all of which have had to be driven from a thousand kilometres distant.
