Our Harbourside Campus

Our harbourside campus is vibrant, welcoming and full of life.


We are located on the picturesque Kirribilli peninsula of Sydney Harbour's northern shore, overlooking Careening Cove and Neutral Bay.

The campus is ideally placed for public transport, with Milsons Point train station, bus stops and ferry wharves within easy walking distance.

The Junior and Senior Schools are both situated on the same campus, sharing many of the school’s excellent facilities.

But we must not linger here in the beautiful bush - but go and see the new Loreto in North Sydney. The community from Fern Hill took possession of this property last Christmas. It is beautifully situated on the side of a hill overlooking Neutral Bay, the grounds sloping down to the water. The view from the verandah and upper windows is exquisite, looking out towards the Pacific Ocean and the "Heads", - great rocks at the entrance to the harbour between which the American Fleet passed.
