"Quiet and Neighbourly"

Nice quiet suburb nestled along the banks on Brisbane water, less than 10 minute drive from the freeway and in between Gosford and Woy Woy. There is a walking/bike track that runs alongside the water all the way through Point Clare down into Tascott. There is an entry into the Brisbane Water National Park at the end of Penang St leading to several peaceful walks and outstanding water views. There is also a train station, Aldi and several take away food restaurants.

"Coastal Treasure"

Originally from Umina, twenty minutes away, moving to Point Clare has been a dream. We are enjoying the peace and quiet, which has been long lost in the Umina Beach area unfortunately. Waking up every morning to the sound of bellbirds instead of cars screeching around is fantastic. We ride our bikes along the Point Clare cycle way , which is gorgeous. Our neighbours are lovely. We had problems with rowdy teenagers vandalising property and fighting in Umina area, but one thing we noticed when we moved to Point Clare is that the residents are either families or older couples, which makes it a very safe, quiet, drama free place to live. There's a local oval, two parks, a familyfriendly and dog friendly walkway/cycle way along the waterfront that stretches from the main shopping complex and children's park with the bridge and duck pond, right up to the hidden picnic and bbq areas along the waterfront and the Aldi supermarket, deli and cafe. Heading in the other direction it takes you all the way to the Gosford waterfront and shops. In between, Spotlight, camping and outdoor recreations stores, homewares/Bunnings etc. Central Coast Leagues Club just a five minute drive down the road, and Erina Fair a fifteen minute drive away. Point Clare is a Coastal treasure, and has a lovely little boutique feel to it. One of those rare suburbs nowadays where you will still find kids playing cricket in the street of a late afternoon. With our first baby due in June, we do not regret buying here.

"Family Friendly"

We moved here ten months ago from Sydney and we are in HEAVEN.
Such a peaceful little community.
Our kids are loving the little playground next to the duck pond, and the walk and cycleway tucked behind the waterfront, and all the private picnic and fishing spots.
The perfect place to raise a family. No crime. No graffiti. No hoons. Very safe neighbourhood for the kids to play.
Popular shopping, beaches and restaurants within a fifteen minute drive.
A preschool surrounded by bush and bellbirds next to the cemetery, a little public school, and private schooling options nearby.
Easy drive to Sydney (only 45 mins).
Love the little Op shop and cafe run by the beautiful Down Syndrome and disabled community, Fairhaven.
The heart of Point Clare.

"Best kept secret"

Undervalued but not for long. Anything comparable in Sydney would cost a fortune literally! great waterways, close to transport, shops, parks, natural bush land, beaches and much more.
