Among a range of other offices, he served as Chairman of Fairfax Media and Director of Monte dei Paschi di Siena, the oldest bank in the world. A veteran of World War II, he was a Commander of the Royal Australian Naval Reserve for most of his career and was made an honorary Commodore in his final years.

Street's father Sir Kenneth Whistler Street was Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of New South Wales and Lieutenant-Governor of New South Wales between 1950 and 1960, as was his grandfather Sir Philip Whistler Street. The patriarch of the family’s legal tradition is Sir Thomas Street, an English Chief Justice and Baron of the Exchequer whose ancestors belonged to the establishment in Worcester, his father having been mayor of the city. Sir Thomas had his children by Lady Penelope Berkeley, of the Berkeley family, by whom the successive generations of the Streets are descendent of William the Conqueror. Street's mother Lady “Red Jessie” Street was known for her extensive campaigning for human rights, particularly women's rights and Australian Aboriginal rights. She “masterminded the formation of the Aboriginal Rights Organisation, which led to the successful referendum held in 1967”. Jessie's father Charles was the son of Mary Grey Mason, daughter of Mary Grey (1796—1863), who was in turn the first child of Sir George Grey, 1st Baronet. As the son of General Charles Grey, 1st Earl Grey and brother of Prime Minister Charles Grey, 2nd Earl Grey, Sir George was a scion of the British noble House of Grey. Jessie's mother was Mabel Harriet, daughter of Edward David Stewart Ogilvie, a New South Wales politician and businessman descendent of another British noble family, Clan Ogilvie. Street's sister Philippa married the Australian Test cricketer and journalist Jack Fingleton. Street's first wife was Susan Gai Watt , the first female Chair of the East Sydney health service (now amalgamated with Illawarra) and the grand-daughter of Australian politician John Brown Watt MLC. By Susan, Street had four children: Kenneth, Sylvia, Alexander and Sarah. By his second wife Penny, he had a fifth child: Jessie. His son Sandy Street is a Federal Circuit Court Judge and a Commander in the Royal Australian Naval Reserve. His daughter, Justice Sylvia Emmett, is a Federal Circuit Court Judge, a Lieutenant-Commander in the Royal Australian Naval Reserve and the spouse of Arthur Emmett, a fellow Federal Circuit Court Judge and Challis Lecturer in Roman Law at Sydney Law School.
