"Nice place to live the quiet life."

I lived here a few years back only for four months or so. Very nice place, mostly flat and easy to walk around ,so compared to Neutral Bay, where I have also lived it is super quiet and easy to get around. And that includes driving. The downside is it is not all that visually exciting, yes there are some very nice houses, but nothing that blows you away like many other suburbs in Sydney. In a lot of ways it reminds me of some nice quiet suburbs in Brisbane. There is a definite lack of cafes and local stores, but it basically has what you need, and the stores and eateries it has are perfectly fine. I found Hunters Hill people to be mostly pleasant, well dressed, and reasonably friendly. There are a lot of thirty and forty something professionals. There is not a lot to do at night, but then again you would not move here for that. This suburb suits people who want a more quiet life, and a family / suburb feel. It is close enough to the city to be handy, and you can usually easily park your car on the street if you need to. Lots of nice tree lined streets.

"We need more buses"

I live on Ryde Rd and enjoy the fast trip to the city when the buses run. Maybe by me writing this someone at STA might read this one day. The bus time table to the city is appaling. Other than that, I love living with the 2110 post code and love the cheap drinks and the best chinese food in the world at The Sporties. pssst.....Don't tell anyone

"Great Family Living"

We have lived in Hunters Hill for 10 years, and like most people, don't plan on leaving.
Someone who once ran a business in the area told me their time in Hunters Hill was their happiest because the customers were so friendly. "No-one is trying to impress anyone, they are all very happy with who they are and where they are in life"
I think this is the key to the great community spirit in Hunters Hill. It is not a trendy suburb. People don't move to Hunters Hill unless they really want to live in a quiet friendly family suburb. So it is very unpretentious.
Good schools, good food, very clean & safe, and so central to everywhere in Sydney.
But don't tell too many people, they will all want to live here!

Lovely friendly atmosphere..Beautiful,tree lined streets,gorgeous sandstone houses and properties.The gardens & parks are magnificent.A real pleasure to stroll along the quiet streets.Hard to believe that we are so close to the hustle and bustle of the CBD.

"Overall a nice place to live just don't live anywhere near the flight path"

Great sense of community spoiled by the aircraft traffic that relentlessly operate on approach between 6 am and 11 pm - if you dont ever want to sleep in and stay up late watching your television turned up loud it would be great

"A country town in the middle of the harbour"

We moved to Hunters Hill after 9 years in Stanmore - we loved Stanmore but with a growing family we needed the space. Within 12 months we new more people in the suburb than we had in the 9 years in Stanmore. The sense of community is strong - people quickly new our kids and events like shool presentation day, Easter, Halloween and Christmas are enthusiastically celebrated - the mayor came to our street Christmas Party. It was such a relief to live in a street where most people have kids - we were no longer the odd ones out. We had to really adjust to letting our kids have the freedom of the suburb. Hunters Hill doesn't have a strong cafe culture, the newsagent closes after lunch and if you live on the penisular, there is no general store - but the trade off is space, freedom and peace of mind - the sort of life style usually only found in a country town.

"Beautiful homes, but short on community"

Hunters Hill has some of the most beautiful property in Sydney. Big homes with stunning outlooks along the peninsula. Transport to the city is great via the ferry, and there are some beautiful waterfront parks accessible to the public. Despite this, I didn't enjoy the 2 years I lived there as much as other suburbs. The residents tend to hide behind high walls, and there is little community engagement or feeling.
