"Great area to live... but maybe not on Avalon Parade itself."

There are two main streets in the village of Avalon in Sydney’s Northern Beaches. Avalon Parade is one of them. It runs from Barrenjoey Rd, crosses Old Barrenjoey Rd (at a dangerous crossroads, where a roundabout should be placed), and heads west until it becomes Hudson Parade.

The eastern third of Avalon Parade is a main part of the shopping precinct. On the other side of Barrenjoey Rd is beautiful Avalon Beach with ocean rock swimming pool, kid’s paddling pool and SLSC (which has nippers).
The shops consist of bakers, takeaways, patisseries and specialty stores. There are numerous real estate agents, a good butchers, and close by is Woolworths. There is also a Post Office, liquor store, Mitre Ten and many café’s.

Some 300 metres westward, the shops peter out and at this point there is large carpark, and next to this the first of three medical clinics. Directly opposite is the Avalon Backpackers.

The residential properties begin here, and mostly consist of gracious older and newer homes, but many of the blocks have been redeveloped into ostentatious townhouses and apartments (particularly for the over 55’s). Because of the council zoning allowing SEPP55 developments, real estate along part of the road is very valuable indeed.

There is also Pittwater Retirement Village here.

Avalon paraded is pretty and convenient – but is a fairly busy through-route.
