These picturesque city views from across this mini harbour is truly something special.
With some of Sydney’s best dining spread along this famous Sydney Wharf, this is one way to get close to the action without getting wet.
A short 7 minute stroll from The Jensen Potts Point will take you down past some of Sydney’s iconic history which has been visited by celebrities for some 80 years. Harry’s Cafe de Wheels is flanked with images of the famous visits and is worth a visit.
This lengthy heritage listed wharf can be continued through to Sydney’s famous Royal Botanical Gardens which wouldn’t be complete without a trip to The Calyx; a free exhibition centre presenting some of the rarest and most stunning floral and foliage displays in season.
Pull up a seat and watch the world go by at Wooloomooloo Wharf, or keep walking… this one one break the bank.
McElhone Gardens – Billyard Ave, Elizabeth Bay
The ultimate chill spot in Potts Point.
Very much favorited by locals, this stunning coastal garden is a secret to those who are not let in on this top off. A 5 min stroll across Macleay St from The Jensen Potts Point will see you in one absolutely glorious garden flanked by Elizabeth Bay House.
This soul soothing oasis is the prefect spot to relax in the sun with a book or perhaps a picnic as you take in the spectacular views of Rushcutters Bay.
Surrounded by grassy knolls and beautiful Coy Fish, this is a site that cannot be missed and an awesome free activity for just about anyone!
Saturday’s mean market days in Potts Point. When our neighbourhood comes alive with energy, personalities, noise and colour.
This is THE free activity we cannot recommend enough when enjoying your stay at our Locay partner The Jensen Potts Point.
A leisurely stroll just off Macleay Street you will find Kings Cross Markets amongst the beautiful Fitzroy Gardens. Stunning art deco architectures, tropical palms, community benches and how could we forget, the world famous El-Alamein Memorial Fountain. It is simply magical.
Going with an empty stomach is highly (not) recommended, the variety of local organic vendors have you covered. Here you can simply pass through and see how the Locals do it; or… with some small change pick up some fresh berries, a toasted sandwich or bunch of roses.
Markets are best visited before 1pm, and open from 8am – 2pm every weekend.
