.. At the
bottom of the page are
location maps of this area .. which also shows the map walking directions to Rushcutters Bay
Park. The walk is approximately 5-10 minutes.
A visit to this area is highly recommended. If you are considering a place to live in Sydney,the area
of Potts Point/Elizabeth Bay is
ideal for the best of all worlds. The tree lined walk down Elizabeth Bay
Road gives you an idea of why this area is so popular. Enjoy your
walk and enjoy the natural pleasures of Rushcutters Bay Park.
When you arrive at the El Alamein Fountain and
Fitzroy Gardens, to your right is the Police Station. Behind the Police
Station is parking. Head towards the
stairs and walkway down towards Elizabeth Bay Road.
There is a walkway down on your left, or the
stairs to your right, and in the background you will see the walkway
crossing over Elizabeth Bay Road. Go across the crossing and turn left
down the footpath.
Head down Elizabeth Bay Road, where you will
go past a small cafe, a real estate agent, and apartments.
Down a little further there is a restaurant
near the corner with a roundabout in the background. Turn right at the
corner, where there is another small cafe.
After turning right, head further down
Elizabeth Bay Road. In the background is a red brick unit block. This is
where you will turn right to head down to Rushcutters Bay Park.
The building on your left has units and a
variety of shops on the ground level. I lived in this building, a
peaceful, relaxing area with a friendly village atmosphere. Stay on this
side of the road & cross the road in the front.
Once across the road there is a bus stop where
the 311 bus will take you into the city. Just before the bus stop is
Holdworth Ave and a sign that says 'To Rushcutters Bay'.
Head down Holdworth Ave where at the end of
the road are steps down to Rushcutters Bay Park.
The stairs are historically old and steep but
maintained well. Hold onto the railing!

At the bottom of the stairs the start of
Rushcutters Bay Park opens up to you with a welcoming entrance sign.
Follow the park around via the footpath areas.
