Where to find love in Sydney

There are rumours that someone once found love in Sydney. Sydney, populous and pretty, has earned a reputation for being unlucky for the lovelorn. But are all the single ladies and laddies just in the wrong postcode?



You’d think with all those stunning beaches and that gorgeous harbour, Sydney would be the perfect setting for finding love. Everyday, people converge on the city and its surrounds for work, fun and the treacherous journey to find love. 


But according to dating app Tinder, perhaps the singles are in the wrong Sydney suburb.


The site ranked the top ‘right-swiped’ (you swipe right on a potential match if you like them) Sydney suburbs for 2018, revealing that the best spot for love isn’t actually near the city or the beach.


Turns out Wetherill Park in Sydney’s west scored the most right swipes in 2018. It is home to some fab Italian restaurants, so perhaps love really does travel via the stomach.


The west must be the place to be as Parramatta came out on top last year, but dropped to fourth place this year. 


Beachside suburbs are sprinkled through the list, with Bondi Beach ranked second, Maroubra coming in at number 10 and Manly at 15.


But it was Sydney’s southern suburbs that dominated the list with Gymea, Kogarah, Miranda, Caringbah and Brighton-le-Sands all making the top 15. 


Here’s the rest of the Top 15:

  1. Wetherill Park
  2. Bondi Beach
  3. North Sydney
  4. Parramatta
  5. Gymea
  6. Ryde
  7. Kogarah
  8. Sydney CBD
  9. Burwood
  10. Maroubra
  11. Caringbah
  12. Bankstown
  13. Miranda
  14. Brighton-Le-Sands
  15. Manly
