"Riverside Suburb"

Just purchased!! neighbours are lovely. I just love how the children can play safely on this quiet street.I don't have to pack up the bikes anymore!!! "yipeee" as the park is at the bottom of the street. Sunday mornings is now a short walk to the river to feed the ducks. How relaxing is the ferry into the city!! you can even get a coffee as you get on!!
I feel a little guilty writting this as the suburb is not well known but I think this will change as its discovered!! have a look for yourself!!!!!!!

  • close to ferry
  • bike track

"Just like the good old days, when kids could play safely in the street"

Quiet cul de sac with many young families. Living in this street reminds me of my childhood, when you could just walk to a neighbour's house and knock on the door and see if the kids there are home. Neighbours are all very friendly, and who could complain about a 100 hectare riverside park at the end of the street with 2 playgrounds, soccer fields, netball courts, cricket nets, and a bike track that covers a 20km loop that takes in the Olympic Stadium precinct - fantastic.

"Has a small village feel"

Moved here 4 yrs ago and just love it. The park is the main draw card with lots of space for children to play and cycle!!! and just "have lots of fun"!! There are many transport options with the Ferry my choice into the city!! So glad we found this very small area on the banks of the river.

"Great street for families and couples of all ages"

The park at the end of the street is awesome... with bike tracks heading to parramatta, rhodes and Olympic park and walking tracks all around the park. The ferry is a 10 minute walk and there is the yummiest cafe only 5 minutes away. The kids love the park area and the dogs also get to have 'off the lead area' close by too. West Ryde shopping centre, meadowbank/shephards bay centre is very close. Good quality resturants are starting to pop up which gives the place the best of all that Sydney can offer... Best street around!!!!
