"Quiet Street, Big Houses- but make sure you have a car!"

I lived on Avon Close in Asquith for many years. It's quiet, safe and peaceful, and the perfect place for a family that needs room to grow. Lovely parks nearby and the local primary school is only a five minute walk up the road. However, transport is atrocious. The train station is a hilly 15 minute walk, and don't expect trains more than 2-3 times an hour. No bus service nearby to speak of- there was a 10:15 am bus to hornsby that came once a day, although i speak of it in the past tense because many times it has never bothered to turn up! The commute to the city (if you work in the city) is therefore rather painful. Particularly if you have to change trains and wait around in hornsby for 20+ minutes for a train that goes to Asquith.
As for shopping/night life, not great. Asquith Coles is horrendously expensive and should be avoided. Hornsby shopping is a 5-7 minute drive, which was good for groceries but I found the clothes selection to be limited and generic. I far prefer the 'old side' of Hornsby, which has really good value for movies at the Odeon, and some very good value for money restaurants. The Japanese and Pizza places are pretty good. Rails restaurant is fantastic (we still visit, even though we now live in Lane Cove). I still (unless you count the RSL!) I wouldn't count it much of a nightlife though.
