"Great little village"

We love living in Gymea. It's extremely convenient for both driving and walking. The shops in Gymea Village are great. It's a lovely suburb to raise a family with a good number of local schools, both public and private and is convenient with the train line

"One of the better Sydney suburbs."

Grew up in Gymea and my family have lived there for over 60 years. It is very humid, so expect mould and in Winter, to use your wipers at night even with no rain. This however, is good for your lawns and garden. Many homes have a chill until October. The proposed F6 extension will be going through the middle of the suburb so beware. Nearby Gray's Point seems to offer very good value for money so consider it too. It feels like a south coast country town but is a touch isolated. Gymea has a shopping centre (remember those) and not a mall and has virtually everything including the brilliant La Cucina and Nina's Chocolates!!! It is within walking distance from most of the suburb. Many houses were built in the 50's and 60's so may need renovating. The train line is a huge draw card and gets you all the way to Bondi Junction if required without changing trains. The roads in the Shire are generally not grid locked like in the Eastern suburbs which has way too many traffic lights, roundabouts etc...Gymea also offers FAR better value for money than the East and is not as hot as the West. You can drive to Sydney CBD and the East in 35 - 40 minutes out of peak with no toll roads (yet) and few revenue raising Red light/Speed/"Safety Cameras" if you use The Grand Parade. Wide selection of Schools. A great place to grow up but a bit narrow minded. The National Park is next door and EASY access to the south coast.
