Drummoyne

Lifestyle
Located 6 kilometres west of the Sydney central business district, Drummoyne sits on the peninsula between Iron Cove and Five Dock Bay. It is surrounded on three sides by Sydney Harbour and the Parramatta River and, as such, has some of Sydney\'s best waterfront views. Drummoyne neighbours the similarly historic Five Dock, Abbotsford and Balmain, though Russell Lea is the only adjacent suburb by land. Some of the substantial old Victorian and Edwardian homes remain in Drummoyne, along with the smaller semi detached houses built in the earlier part of the 20th century.

Transport
Drummoyne is linked to Rozelle by the Iron Cove Bridge and Huntleys Point by the Gladesville Bridge. Victoria Road, one of Sydney\'s busiest roads, cuts through the heart of Drummoyne en route to the Sydney CBD. Victoria Road\'s presence makes the CBD transport hub extremely accessible, as numerous and frequent bus routes from Sydney\'s west merge in Drummoyne. Regular Ferry and Rivercat services from the Wolseley Street wharf also provide a transport option for Drummoyne residents, servicing the Parramatta-City route. Another ferry wharf, servicing the Birkenhead-City route, is at Birkenhead Point.
