Kirribilli is a suburb located on Sydney Harbour’s Lower North Shore. It is well-known for its vicinity to Sydney Harbour, specifically the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge, as well as its stunning views of the metropolitan skyline. Also, the “Kirribilli Markets” draw tens of thousands of people to this opulent Sydney area every fourth Saturday of the month.
Kirribilli, which means “excellent fishing location,” is derived from the Aboriginal word Kiarabilli. However, according to a different story, the name is a riff on “Carabella,” which early colonist James Milson called his first home. Currently, Kirribilli is most known for its market. This market, one of Sydney’s oldest and busiest, was founded in 1976. Along with a selection of stores, eateries, and other services, the region is also home to several parks, walking paths, and public areas.
The Cadigal people are the territory’s original inhabitants and its legal proprietors. However, after the construction of military barracks and a signal station atop Observatory Hill at the start of the 19th century, the Europeans started to settle here. Later, the neighbourhood was transformed into a posh suburb for the wealthy. The popular Kirribilli Market is only one attraction in this neighbourhood, which also includes the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron and Kirribilli House, the Australian Prime Minister’s official Sydney residence.
Additionally, Kirribilli McDougall Street is a location worth going to, particularly in the spring. Photographers go from all over the world during this time of year to capture the allure of the alleys adorned with jacaranda trees. Therefore, if you also want some Instagram-worthy photos, get there early in the day before the place becomes crowded.
