Kensington

Kensington’s charming, tree-lined streets boast wide footpaths and green spaces – in fact, the suburb was modelled on the London suburb from which it takes its name and despite the proliferation of high- and medium-density dwellings, there’s a real sense light and space in the area.

School may be in for many of the residents of this university suburb, but there’s more than a degree at UNSW or NIDA on offer. Anzac Parade, Kensington’s main thoroughfare, is the place to go in search of well-priced and authentic Asian flavours, including Malaysian, Thai, Chinese and Indonesian feasts. The shop-filled, bustling high street also connects the residents to the city on a brief 20-minute bus ride.
