"Quiet location, a car is a must..."

George Street is for the most part a cul-de-sac partially fronting Careel Bay in North Avalon. The northwestern part is waterfront, and the very end is reserve where the Careel Bay Marina is located.

The blocks are large, the street well treed, and it’s generally a quiet road, particularly the western end.

The facilities at the eastern end are generally better, being closer to the buses of Barrenjoey rd, the beach, and the large reserve Hitchcock Park (with tennis courts) is also nearby. There are a few local shops on Elvina Ave that crosses George St. On the other side of Barrenjoey Rd, on North Avalon Road there are more shops, a good café and a long day care centre. Barrenjoey High School is close by, as is North Avalon Beach. The western end of George Street is a long walk from anywhere, so a car would be advisable.

The properties on George Street range from smaller original beach houses, to large, new modern dwellings.

Of great local interest, and contention, is the Careel Bay Marina. Several years ago it was leased by a company who wishes to develop the facilities. The original DA was refused, and as far as the writer is aware, there is still a battle ensuing. Currently the facility is minimal with one small shed offering boating services. The developer wants to build wharves, shops and a café.
