When choosing the location of your new home, being able to lead a healthy lifestyle becomes a significant factor The good news is that if you ask the question of whether Randwick is a healthy suburb, the answer is a resounding ‘YES!’ And this is exactly why Cbus Property have chosen to develop Newmarket within this healthy suburb.
Randwick achieved five out of five stars for key environmental indicators that positively shape an individual’s health according to The Domain Healthy Suburbs study conducted by Domain, Deloitte Access Economics and Tract Consultants. The research takes an in-depth look at the health opportunities every Sydney suburb provides and rated Randwick with high scores in Walkability, Allied and Community Health, and Hospitals.
Walkability measures a suburb’s capacity for walking to fulfil many daily needs in a safe, efficient and enjoyable way, promoting mental and physical fitness. With schools, public transport, parks, beaches and eateries all within easy walking distance, Randwick leads the way in walkability metrics.
The Allied and Community Health indicator assesses a location’s easy access to GP and specialist medical services, as well as public community health facilities, whilst the Hospitals indicator maps proximity to a hospital with the capacity to serve many individual’s needs, allowing them to recover from illness or injury.
There are many cutting edge hospitals and medical facilities located in Randwick – including the Prince of Wales, Royal Hospital for Women, and the Sydney Children’s Hospital – which make it the health and wellbeing capital of Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs.
In addition, the NSW Government is investing an unprecedented $720m in the Randwick Health and Education Precinct, which means the suburb will soon be one of Australia’s leading centres for health and wellbeing, committed to the integration of health, research, education and teaching to drive innovation.
The expanded campus will expand the hospital to the University of New South Wales, integrating allied and community health services with research and teaching facilities. The Precinct will attract the best talent from an increasingly global talent pool, seeing the concentration of clinical, scientific and academic minds become one of the largest in Australia.
In addition to expanded medical facilities, the new CBD and South East Light Rail being constructed close to Newmarket will transform Randwick’s accessibility. The Light Rail will deliver high capacity, reliable services to connect locals to the CBD and Circular Quay.
As one of Sydney’s most liveable suburbs, Randwick is about to become even healthier when Newmarket is completed. Quiet, yet close to the city, Newmarket will feature beautiful big fig trees and great garden spaces, as well as a generous 5000m2 park to provide space for both fitness and fun, whilst green thumbs can tend to the nearby community garden. The historic former horse Sales Ring will be transformed into an interactive playground for children, whilst others can rest and enjoy the sunshine in the peaceful, secluded pocket parks.
Newmarket Randwick also includes a curated retail and dining precinct where the village will come to life, and food connoisseurs can find a healthy feast.
In fact, there’ll be so much to see, do and enjoy at Newmarket Randwick, that the suburb is likely to continue to lead the healthy suburb’s list for many years to come.
