Our neighborhood:

Ideally situated on Sydney's lower north shore, our quiet 3-bedroom suburban family home is centrally located within a 5 km radius of the many attractions,including: city centre, Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Taronga Zoo, Balmoral beach, Spit Bridge, Manly, etc. Our local "high street" is a 10 min walk away with restaurants, shops, cinema, & transport. A closer bus stop is 5 mins walk. A bus to the city centre takes 15 minutes. To drive to the city centre takes around 10 minutes.  There are numerous national parks with many bush walks in the area. There are 4-5 local children's parks with playground equipment within walking distance (5 - 20 minutes walk). Stunning view of Sydney Harbour within 100 metres walk from our property at our local park,where you can also enjoy a picnic with a view and watch the boats, etc.

Happy to make children's equipment, toys, outdoor child equipment, etc. available on request. Possible auto exchange - manual Opel Astra 2001, seats 5. Our home is very child-friendly, yet also ideal for those without kids since it is so centrally located within Sydney.
