East Sydney is a small inner-city locality in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. It is situated immediately east of the Sydney central business district, adjacent to Hyde Park.

East Sydney is a locality within the suburbs of Darlinghurst and Woolloomooloo in the City of Sydney. With the exception of William Street, the suburb remains primarily a residential area, and council proposals for street closures in 2005 indicate that it will probably stay that way. Stanley Street and Crown Street feature many restaurants with different cuisines.

Sport[edit]

East Sydney - as part of the Eastern Suburbs - is represented in one of the most popular sporting competitions in Australia, the National Rugby League, by the local Rugby League club, the Sydney Roosters (formerly known as the Eastern Suburbs Roosters) which have represented the area in the League since 1908.
