This inner-west suburb has a thriving arts and culture scene, and a spectacular line-up of cafés and restaurants. Glebe is relatively close to the CBD, lots of transport options (road, rail, bus and ferry) and a good mix of property. It benefits from the light rail, yet still feels somewhat disconnected and different from the rest of the city and its neighbours. Professionals can jump on the light rail and connect to basically anywhere at Central, while students can walk or cycle to the nearby UTS campus.
