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.
The area was first known as 'Rush Cutting Bay' because the swampy land was covered in tall rushes, that were used by early settlers for thatching houses. In 1878, 6 acres (24,000 m2) were reserved for recreation and after reclamation work was completed, Rushcutters Bay Park was created. Rushcutters Bay was once the site of the famous Sydney Stadium.
On Boxing Day 1908 at the Stadium, Tommy Burns lost his heavyweight title against the legendary Jack Johnson, who was the first African-American to win a world title.
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
The bay at Sydney Harbour served as host for the sailing events during the 2000 Summer Olympics.
