Rushcutters Bay is a harbourside inner-east suburb of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia 3 kilometres east of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the City of Sydney.The suburb of Rushcutters Bay sits beside the bay it takes its name from, on Sydney Harbour. It is surrounded by the suburbs of Elizabeth Bay, Darlinghurst, Paddington and Darling Point. Kings Cross is a locality on the western border. == History == After British settlement, the area was first known as 'Rush Cutting Bay' because the swampy land was covered in tall rushes used by early settlers for thatching houses. In 1878, 2 hectares (6 acres) were reserved for recreation; and, after reclamation work was completed, Rushcutters Bay Park was created, bounded by New South Head Road and the bay at Sydney Harbour. Rushcutters Bay was once the site of the famous Sydney Stadium. On Boxing Day 1908 at the Stadium, Tommy Burns lost his heavyweight title to the legendary Jack Johnson, famously the first African-American to win a world title. For many years Rushcutters Bay was home to White City Stadium for major tennis tournaments, prior to the establishment of tennis facilities at Sydney Olympic Park. On 6 April 1927, Herbert Pratten, Federal Minister for Trade, appeared in a Lee DeForest film to celebrate the opening of a Phonofilm studio in Rushcutters Bay.In the 20th century, when neighbouring Darlinghurst was seen as down-at-heel, some businesses and residents abutting that boundary would, for appearance’s sake, list their addresses as being in Rushcutters Bay. This phenomenon persists despite Darlinghurst’s gentrification; for example, a BMW dealership on Craigend Street, Darlinghurst, provides customers with an incorrect address.The bay at Sydney Harbour served as host for the sailing events during the 2000 Summer Olympics.
Excellent customer service from the moment I walked in. Dont know his name but the tall bloke who was assisting me in choosing a Yeti cup and Yeti duffle bag was excellent. The mrs was luckily with me and bought a bunch of Yeti gear for me as an early birthday present 😏. Overall the service here was great and they have excellent range of products! Also had a free egg burger and water!!
I visited the weber barbecue shop in Moorpark on the 5th of June 2023 and there was assisted by Javier and Ray who are very professional sales persons. They introduced me to different types of barbecues in the shop and assisted me to choose one which suits my budget and needs. I enjoyed food Rey cooked in the store. It was unbelievable and so delicious. Thank you very much for such a wonderful experience in your shop today.
Fantastic experience! I wasn’t sure what BBQ to purchase, and Rey put to me the different options which helped me with my decision making. He is so patient and so knowledgeable – an expert! The meat he cooked was beyond delicious as he taught me how to get the most out of the barbeque. By the end of the lesson, I was truly inspired with new knowledge. He genuinely wanted me to be happy before making the decision. I am excited about my purchase! I can’t thank and recommend Rey and Weber Moore Park highly enough.
Had a wonderful experience with Oliver. He was very patient and helpful. He gave me excellent advice and I was so glad to purchase my new BBQ plus accessories from him today. Highly recommend!
Went to Weber at Moore Park and got to cook my own steak in store. Amazing experience, great customer service. Upgraded from my old Family Q to the brand new Genesis. I highly recommend Oliver and the team.
