"The Best"

Having lived here for a year now can't imagine a better locale in Sydney than Cammeray. Great caf and restaurant scene 5 mins from the City without Spit of Military road to put up with ! Access to the West via the freeway and Lane Cove tunnel or North via Eastern Valley way ! Balmoral is 10 mins and the Northern beaches approx. half and hour.

Two brilliant parks Tunks and Primrose as well as a golf course and walking tracks everywhere !

Definite village feel with friendly retailers and some great eateries and cafe's.
Pros
  • fantastic location
  • good range of housing
  • lots of cafes
  • very green and leafy
  • friendly shop owners

"Won't live here again"

The housing is vastly overpriced, the suburb is filled with noisy neighbours constantly renovating, people are rude, snobby and aggressive on the roads. Can't wait to leave.

s12raider All I cna say is you must have had awful neighbours. Loved this place, people realy friendly, close to transport, good/great bars/ restaurants, close to beaches etc. If you like outdoors, golf, tennis (free courts too), parks and a nice community feel then this is a good place to be. Not as crowded as some and yes it is on the expensive side but hey it's 5-7 km from CBD max so you pay for it. I WOULD LIVE HERE AGAIN - did for 15 months.

"No need for a car living here"

Excellant location with immediate access in all directions by car. Public transport is a breeze into the City, Nth Syd and surrounds. It's even an easy walk to & from Nth Syd, Neutral Bay & Crows Nest for work or play. There are plenty of parks to exersize (for you or your dog) and the streetscape is generally leafy which makes it pleasant

"Go The Bears!"

Cammeray is home to the North Sydney Rugby League Club, and residents make good use of the facilities, including the gym, that it provides. The suburb is a mixture of high, medium and low density housing, but the house blocks are not nearly as large in surrounding suburbs. There are some great cafes in the shopping strip, and the Belgian Beer specialists at Epoque take pride in their signature dish – mussels!
