A place to be discovered
Lavender Bay’s appeal is that it makes you feel like anything is possible. Settle into the laneway life, unpack your things, and take full advantage of the surrounds.
When it comes to this beautiful wedge of Sydney, do not be fooled by the romantic name; Lavender Bay doesn’t pull any punches.
Sitting snuggly between North Sydney and a harbour bridge away from the CBD, this little suburb has everything at its fingertips. It’s got your back for public transport, street parking, running tracks, city views, harbourside parks, bars, restaurants, and even secret gardens. There’s plenty of room to breathe and listen to your own thoughts in a natural setting without compromise to a central location.
Work inc sits on the land of the Cammeraygal and Wallumedegal peoples of the Eora nation, and thus we would like to acknowledge and pay respects to the traditional custodians of the land.
Meet in the Middle(miss laneway)
Getting the whole team together is simple.
Choose between two train stations, or jet across the harbour by ferry and saunter up to the warehouses from Luna Park. There’s also street parking, metered parking, carshare parking, bike parking, scooter parking, dog parking; every kind of parking you could need. And if you’re a bit lost, keep an eye out for the green bike path and follow the railway – you’ll find us beneath it.
Maybe it’s a client meeting or a boozy lunch by Barangaroo, the city is right there next to you.
- By Foot: 2km, or a half hour scenic stroll
- By Train: One stop away, 10 min door-to-door
- By Car: 8 mins, taxi rank at the top of the street
- By Bike: 9 mins, we’re on the cycle path
- By Ferry: 20 mins, complimentary salt mist
Well, that’s just at the top of the street.
We sit on the fringe of North Sydney and Sydney CBD but remain at arm’s length from these buzzword-using corporates. You’ll notice it when you head out from the laneway; the greenery and tranquillity drifting further into the distance only to be replaced by suited bodies en masse but you may get lucky and spot a fellow member amongst the high-rises.
Introduce yourself to the local talent and keep the office banter going outside of the workplace.
Start with our local pubs, there are plenty to choose form. Then, if you’re up for a leafy rooftop bar and restaurant, venture over to North Sydney’s Green Moustache. But if you like the rustic nature of our warehouses then you’ll love The Botanist’s basement fit out; plus, they make a bloody good martini. And if the air’s too perfect to be indoors then pack yourself a picnic, grab something special from Le Pont Wine Store and settle into a spot by the wharf and watch Luna Park’s Ferris wheel tic by at dusk.
You’ll find a vibrant green bike path at our door that’ll lead you up and over the bridge into the city in a speedy 9 minutes.
But maybe cycling’s not your jam. There’s a running track hugging the harbour that’ll give you a great 5km loop before work, or venture to the pool for a refresh and be in awe as you swim beneath Sydney’s iconic bridge. If you’re feeling inspired, you can even skim along the water in a kayak. As you discover the area, you’ll find there’s no lack of green space – dog parks, people parks, gyms, meditative oases, and secret gardens are all in close proximity too.
Work to your own rhythm and let the surrounds of Lavender Bay keep you balanced.
Not everyone works weekends but around here it’s not a setback, there’s so much community spirit around to keep you productive outside the office. On a warm weekend, soak up the sun while chatting to local vendors at fashion and farmer’s markets, detour for lunch at the Coal Loader and roam their rooftop gardens, community vegetable plots, disused coal tunnels, and art exhibits; or stay close to the desk and sample something from the brunch scene of Kirribilli. And on another note, there’s wine tastings on Saturdays at the top of the street.
