Ballast Point Park

Latest Events, Offers & Job Opportunities

Birchgrove is a small but stunning part of the Balmain peninsula. Surrounded by amazing waterside parks such as Ballast Point Park, Mort Bay Park & Birchgrove Oval, there are many beautiful places to relax & take in the scenery. It is a quick walk to reach Darling Street in Balmain with all it has to offer. 

Birchgrove is on the Balmain peninsula and is part of Leichhardt Council.   Birchgrove’s cafes & shops are centred on & around Rowntree Street, including Charlotte’s Cafe which is always popular with coffee lovers & foodies. 

Many of the local pubs have strong ties to the historic ship building industry including The Dry Dock Hotel and The Royal Oak. The Royal Oak particularly is well known for its excellent food and craft beers. Birchgrove has the beautiful Louisa Road that has absolute waterfront homes on both sides of the street, with one side looking towards Cockatoo Island & the other towards the Harbour Bridge.  

Birchgrove is serviced by a ferry from the Birchgrove Wharf, but there is also a city bus that departs from the bottom of Grove Street.
