6 kms north of the CBD with leafy waterside parklands, jaw-dropping views and meandering hilly streets are the backdrop to homely Cremorne. From the lively hub of boutique cafés, dining and the iconic Orpheum Cinema, Cremorne cascades down into the much quieter secluded Willoughby Bay on one side and opens out onto Sydney Harbour at Cremorne Point on the other. Cremorne Junction is a locality within the suburb. Immediately adjacent to the suburb, to the south, is the small residential suburb of Cremorne Point. Cremorne is situated between Mosman and Neutral Bay.
Cremorne is predominantly a residential area, with a wide variety of architectural styles. Federation styles are common. The California Bungalow style is also represented. The most outstanding example is Belvedere, in Cranbrook Avenue. An example of the larger California style, Belvedere was designed by Alexander Stewart Jolly and built in 1919. It has heritage listings at both state and federal levels.
