Annandale is a suburb of Inner West Sydney in NSW, 5km west of the Sydney CBD. It is part of the local government area of the Municipality of Leichhardt. Annandale's northern end lies on Rozelle Bay, which is on Sydney Harbour. Glebe lies to its east, Leichhardt to the west and Stanmore to the south.
Residents enjoy the benefits of inner city living, with an abundance of restaurants, cafes, pubs and live entertainment, mostly along Booth St, between Annandale and Nelson streets, and along Parramatta Road. Annandale is fortunate to have wide streets, footpaths and few driveways, which make it ideal for walking.
Johnston Street, completed in 1888, is notable for being the first 30m (100 ft) wide street in Sydney. Located on this street is the Hunter Baillie Memorial Presbyterian Church. Constructed in 1885-89, this Gothic revival church's 56m sandstone spire was the tallest in NSW for more than 100 years, until the 70m twin spires of Sydney's St Mary's Cathedral were completed in 2000. Hunter Baillie Memorial Presbyterian Church was designed by Cyril and Arthur Blacket, sons of the famous architect Edmund Blacket.
