Balmain, New South Wales



Balmain is a suburb in the inner-west of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Balmain is located slightly west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the Municipality of Leichhardt.

Balmain is located on the Balmain peninsula surrounded by Port Jackson, adjacent to the suburbs of Rozelle to the south-west, Birchgrove to the north-west, and Balmain East to the east. Iron Cove sits on the western side of the peninsula, with White Bay on the south-east side and Mort Bay on the north-east side.

Balmain has become established in Australian working class culture due to being the place where Australian Labor Party formed in 1891 and its social history is of high cultural significance to New South Wales.

Darling Street, Balmain\'s main thoroughfare, features boutique shops, quality restaurants and cafes alongside old drinking establishments. Landmarks on this street include the Post Office and Court House, alongside Balmain Town Hall, the historic Westpac Bank, Balmain Fire Station and Balmain Working Men\'s Institute. Other commercial developments are scattered throughout the suburb. The headquarters of the NSW Water Police moved to Cameron Cove in Balmain in late 2007.

Balmain has several ferry wharves that are serviced by the Inner Harbour ferry services. These wharves are located at Thames Street, Elliot Street and in Darling Street, Balmain East. Services run to Circular Quay. Sydney Ferries maintenance and repair base is at Balmain Shipyard.

The Bus services that service Balmain are: 441 - Birchgrove to NSW Art Gallery via Rozelle, 442 - Balmain to QVB via Rozelle, 444/445 - Balmain to Campsie, 433 - Balmain to Millers Point.

The post-industrial gentrification of Balmain has resulted in a suburb of considerable charm and interest where the modest, pretty houses command prices that would not have been dreamt of by their original tenants. However, Balmain still retains a diverse mix of residents due to the Housing Commission unit blocks in the suburb.

Balmain is home to many historic hotels, including the Cat and Fiddle Hotel, Cricketer\'s Arms Hotel (now The Monkey Bar), Dick\'s Hotel, Dry Dock Hotel, Exchange Hotel, Forth & Clyde Hotel, Kent Hotel, London Hotel, Mort Bay Hotel, Norfolk Pines Hotel, Pacific Hotel, Riverview Hotel, Royal Oak Hotel, Shipwright\'s Arms Hotel, Star Hotel, Town Hall Hotel, Volunteer Hotel and the West End Hotel.

Balmain Sailing Club is located in nearby Birchgrove and is home to the annual Balmain Regatta. Balmain is home to the Wests Tigers rugby league club.
