One of Sydney's grandest suburbs, Mosman is located just 8kms from the CBD over the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Its a suburb many aspire to live in and once you're there, theres little real reason to leave, with plenty of shops along Military Road, stunning scenery and even the iconic Taronga Zoo to keep you amused. Balmoral Beach offers a more relaxed atmosphere, with parks, swimming and beachside cafes.

The baby boomers quite rightly had their eye on Mosman, and theyre not in a hurry to leave. You're likely to meet mature folk who have left having children until later in life. That's not to say that there aren't plenty of younger folk frolicking on Balmoral beach or tacking their sailboat along Middle Harbour, but generally speaking they're in the minority.

Its tempting to stay at home and get lost in the harbour view from your balcony, but at some point its important to leave the house. A walk through Mosman is an excellent workout due to the inevitable hill-climbing challenges. Small clumps of village shops include delicatessens, bakeries and specialty gift stores, while the major shopping precinct is located on Military Road. 

Taronga Zoo is set on some of Mosmans' most enchanting real estate, with the giraffes enjoying a spectacular harbour view. Sydney Harbour National Park encloses the Eastern side of Mosman and is excellent for walks and picnics.

Mosman is home to some of Australia's most beautiful Federation houses. With beaches, parks and plenty of shopping, this suburb boasts one of Sydney's most coveted lifestyles.
