"Perfect Suburb"

An extremely friendly community, great place to raise kids. You can walk down the street and everyone will say hi or stop for a quick chat. 4 primary schools in the area, roads aren’t busy, Coles or Aldi are short drive away two great ovals, netball courts, tennis courts, a library, skatepark, community centre, rsl and walking distance to train station. What’s more your northern holiday destinations are super close. I moved here 8 yrs ago and couldn’t imagine a better place to live.

"Great place to live"

With Berowra station for public transport and Hornsby not far away it is a great place to live. Highschools are a bit of an issue but a short train trip will get your kids where they need to go.

People are extremely friendly, streets are clean and very green.

"Affordable North Shore location"

People are generally surprised when they find out that Berowra is quite affordable but also well located.
Consider this. You are 10 mins from Wahrooga but not on the main freeway. The population cant expand due to the bush. Having worked in Ryde,Crows Nest and the western suburbs and being a professional I would often leave Ryde at 6pm and arrive home in 20-25mins. My Children went to public schools and completed degrees at major city Unis. If you wanted private schools you have multiple choices and berowra is on the train line. You can buy very cheap homes and do them up. Dont buy in Berowra if you are a snob because the economic status of us varies from low income to wealthy. We tend to like this. There is a bike track to Hornsby and regular cyclists love the Berowara-Brooklyn-Berowra ride. They are planning a new pool for Hornsby and we have plenty of sporting fields and a skate park that is placed in a visible location. I could choose to live in Turramurra,Wahroonga or Normanhurst but I prefer to live here. Shopping at Hornsby is also close. It's a genuine community in Berowra.
Pros
  • Affordable North Shore location

Cons
