It's a suburb full of excellent medical, education and recreational facilities which makes it an ideal suburb for families with children. Randwick is also home to some stunning federation homes and buildings, and is most famous for having Sydney's premier race track the Royal Randwick Racecourse.

Regular bus services are currently the only public transport available in Randwick. However the South East Light Rail is being built, and when it is completed residents will be able to take this all the way to Circular Quay.
