"Great Spot and Getting Better"

Great spot, my partner and I moved here in March 2017 after renting in Wollstonecraft. We are both finance professionals working in Martin Place in the CBD so the express trains are a major plus making the commute door to door just under an hour +/- 5 minutes and being within actual walking distance from the station means we don't need to rely on parking. We looked at the Hills District and Western Suburbs but settled on Mount Colah due to the amenities, nice friendly neighbors, close proximity to the national parks, good schools, beaches and motorway north for weekend getaways. Another positive is getting the NBN on the HFC network shortly so this should assist when working from home. Only frustrating downside is the lack of variety in take away food options and cafe's however this is slowly getting better but this is made up for 100x by being able to have a massive backyard and being able to take the kayak down to bobbin head for a early morning or afternoon paddle in stunning waterways.

"Lots of cul-de-sacs and houses"

There are lots of positives to this area, however it is beginning to look like a graffiti paradise which is a shame. Lots of families and kids roaming around. The noise can sometimes get to you with the freeway, highway and trains but thats what is great about it too its so central. Love the national park and all the walks in the area. Once all the development is completed hopefully there will be more cafes and restaurants. At the moment you can walk/ride to Aldi and one end and Maccas at the other.

"Suburbia at its best."

The suburb is friendly, bushy, clean & in a superb location. With a train line close by, schools, shops & close to the city and sea it is a perfect location for everyone. After seeing Mount Colah voted as the number 1 suburb in Australia, after being blessed with the opporunity to live here I can now see why. I believe the house prices should definitley rise in Mount Colah, as it is Australia's best suburb. Safe, friendly, close to everything & far too under priced for what it has to offer.. 10/10!
