POTTS POINT SUBURB SPOTLIGHT
Potts Point is a small, densely-populated suburb of inner-city Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Potts Point sits on a ridge immediately east of Woolloomooloo, west of Elizabeth Bay and Rushcutters Bay and north of Darlinghurst. The suburb has a roughly trapezoidal shape, and at its greatest extent is no more than 1 kilometre long by 200 metres wide.
Known for its unique character and vibrancy, Potts Point offers a vibrant blend of urban edginess and Parisian style sophistication with urban appeal, culturally rich aesthetic and picturesque tree-lined avenues. It is very popular with a large number of pubs, nightclubs, quality restaurants and cafes.
Potts Point is named for Joseph Hyde Potts, who was employed by the Bank of New South Wales. He purchased six-and-a-half acres of harbourside land in an area then known as Woolloomooloo Hill - which he renamed Potts Point.
