"Hidden Gem of the Upper North Shore."

Great suburb for young families and working professional like myself. I purchased an apartment here 6 months ago and we couldn't be happier, the location is excellent. Gordon eateries and cafes are only a stroll away, and it's only a train ride from the CBD. Plenty of green space for sports and outdoor activity, plus the greengate hotel holds excellent trivia Tuesday night and a good watering hole! Did you know Elle Macpherson grew up in Killara?!
Pros
  • Quite suburb
  • Excellent schools
  • Community minded occupants
  • Proximity to all amenities
  • Tree lined streets with stunning architecture

  • Professionals

sarap2 Elle Macpherson went to Kilara High but grew up in Lindfield - Grosvenor Road to be precise. We know her home well.

"Great schools + Great neighbours = Killara"

Close proximity to some of the best schools - Killara High, Ravenswood, Pymble Ladies College and Knox Grammar. Friendly neighbours and leafy surrounds. Killara to Wynyard takes only 30 minutes via train. Perfect place to raise your kids.
