Welcome to Cremorne Point Manor….

Renowned for its stunning views across the world’s most beautiful harbour and it’s leafy, quiet walks, the “Point” is only an 8 minute, scenic ferry ride to the city. Surrounded by glorious parkland, the Point provides abundant walking and jogging tracks, a public harbourside swimming pool and delightful picnic spots. There is also a wonderful kids playground about a 5 minute walk from our Manor.

Arriving in Sydney:
The Kingsford Smith Airport is the main international and domestic airport. It is about 10 kilometres (6 miles) south-west of the Central Business District and Sydney Harbour. The Government-run airport buses run to Sydney City and Kings Cross every 10 minutes, stopping at designated points along the way. Fares are not expensive.
Sydney has a large and well run Government public transport system. Web sites offer extensive information on:

Tripfinder – an automated search facility that gives bus and ferry routes and timetable details.
City Rail train services and maps

Travellers cheques are widely accepted, as are major credit cards VISA, Mastercard and (to a lesser extent) AMEX and Diners Card. Most banks will offer foreign currency exchange.
Sydney enjoys a temperate climate with a mild winter, and has more than 340 sunny days a year. Average minimum temperatures in the winter months of June through to August are 9-11 degrees Celcius (48-52 Farenheit). The summer season is from December through to February.

Sydney, like most parts of Australia, presents no real health risks for foreign visitors. Tap water is good, restaurants and eating places are required by law to maintain a high standard of food preparation, and the city is generally clean. Smog is less of a problem than with cities such as London, Los Angeles, Hong Kong and Bangkok, but is still quite high. Exposure to the sun can be a problem for those who are fair-skinned so please always wear sunscreen, even if you tan easily. Also, those with little experience in swimming in the surf should be cautious when swimming at Sydney’s famous surf beaches, Bondi and Manly, and should always swim between the warning flags erected by lifeguards. Medical costs in Australia are not exhorbitant unlike the United States and Europe, but travel insurance is still recommended.
