For many years, it was the most affluent suburb in Sydney and in terms of houses and properties is still in the top five most expensive suburbs.
A mainly residential suburb known for its stand-out harbour views and exclusive homes and beaches. The lifestyle is relaxed with numerous parks and reserves on th foreshore of the harbour, along with many new up-and-coming cafes, restaurants and shops. Some of the more famous landmarks and attractions in the suburb are; The Hermitage Reserve, Parsley Bay Reserve and the famous Vaucluse House & Macquarie Lighthouse.
Before European settlement, the area where Vaucluse is now located was inhabited by the Birrabirragal aboriginal clan, who belonged to the coastal Dharuglanguage group. The first European activity in the area took place not long after settlement, when a makeshift signalling station was set up on the ridge overlooking the ocean. Its role was to signal the colony if a ship was approaching. Pilots based at Camp Cove, Watsons Bay, could then meet the ship and guide it through the harbour.
