Kingsford

About 9 kilometres south-east of Sydney's CBD, Kingsford is a neighbouring suburb to Randwick and, as such, lays claim to that most glorious of Australian race tracks - the 'last bastion of the male hat' - Royal Randwick.

So you"ll often hear the clop-clop of horses" hooves on the streets of Kingsford as strappers walk thoroughbreds to and from their stables.

Just up the road, too, is the University of New South Wales and NIDA, the National Institute of Dramatic Art, whose graduates include superstars Mel Gibson and Judy Davis.

Add the mix of racing types, university students and aspiring young actors to Kingsford's widely multicultural population and you end up with a suburb with an extremely eclectic population, which is mirrored in the variety of national restaurants and other shopping alternatives on the long main street.

From Kingsford, it's just a brisk walk into magnificent Centennial Park, Sydney's CBD is only 20 minutes away by bus and some of Sydney's best beaches – such as Bronte, Bondi and Maroubra, to name a few – are just over the hill to the east.

Kingsford: Where To Go / Sightseeing

East Lake Golf Course


Unlike its neighbouring courses, Eastlake Golf Club is not a private Club and is open to members and the community.

The course is set amongst Sydney's Botany Wetlands and in recent years this golf club has transformed in multiple ways to become one of the city's best value and most respected golf courses.

Designed on two narrow strips of land characterised by sandy soil, wetlands and flat sections mixed with undulations, the course sidles past its more vaunted golf neighbours in an inconspicuous fashion. Moderate at 5,881 metres Eastlake's par 72 layout hides some of its distance in elevation changes where you have to think if taking the "big dog" out of the bag is the best option.

Eastlake offers great food and beverage options in the Clubhouse and on the course. They have a fully stocked bar with specials that offer you great value all year round.

Bonnie Doon Golf Course


Founded in 1897, Bonnie Doon is considered one of Sydney's best golf courses. It is the city's third-oldest golf club and one of the oldest in Australia. Located only 15 minutes from the city and five minutes from Sydney's international airport, the golf course at Bonnie Doon enjoys championship and Group One status. Slick greens, many with pronounced undulations, have long been recognised as among the best putting surfaces in NSW. Elevated tees and greens with sweeping views of the city are key features of the course design, as are the sand hills which bring unique challenges to many of the holes.

Whether you want to enjoy a drink with your playing partners after a round of golf or host a special occasion, Bonnie Doon's heritage-listed clubhouse provides the perfect environment. As a multi-award winning wedding venue, they can cater for all kinds of events and celebrations.
