It is a waterfront suburb situated to the west of the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), north of the University of Sydney and east of Annandale. Jubilee Park and Glebe light rail stations provide convenient public transport to Dulwich Hill and Central Station and is currently being extended to Circular Quay via George Street and to Kingsford via Surry Hills.

Early 20th century homes including many terraces are common in Glebe, many of which have been beautifully restored and renovated. A number of the 19th century manor homes which are now heritage listed also remain. Due to Glebe’s proximity to multiple universities, apartments are in high demand and there are a number of large modern security complexes in the suburb.
Shops and Restaurants
Glebe Point Road runs north-south through the middle of Glebe and offers a vast selection of restaurants, pubs, cafés and specialty stores. If you still can’t find what you’re looking for, Broadway Shopping Centre in the south-east corner of Glebe offers many more stores including homewares, clothing stores, department stores, a food court, Hoyts cinema and Aldi and Coles supermarkets. Lord Wolseley Hotel is very popular and is just around the corner in Ultimo. Sydney Fish Markets are also nearby in neighbouring Pyrmont if you want to get your fish direct from the wholesalers or just enjoy a sunny afternoon eating fish and chips overlooking the harbour. In coming years, Glebe stands to greatly benefit from the transformation of the Bays Precinct into a vibrant shopping and dining hub.
