Sydney is Australia's largest and oldest city and provides many options for living
and recreation. Built on the shores of the stunning Port Jackson, it is a spectacular
setting for a city.
Suburbs of Sydney
There are three main areas of Sydney where Defence members tend to live:
Real estate websites for Sydney
- Liverpool/Wattle Grove
- Richmond, and
- areas close to the city.
Sydney has a wide range of public and private schools. It is important that you
decide on your housing arrangements before finalising schools. Remember that it may
prove impossible to locate suitable housing in particular suburbs, and Defence does not
regard a choice of school as grounds to limit your search for a property. For further
information, visit the Department of Education
