"Ryde"

Ryde is an amazing suburb in North Sydney, It is close to the CBD. The bus M52 will take you to Parramatta. Train Station include West Ryde, Meadowbank, North Ryde and many others. It has Top Ryde Shopping where there is a living area, library and Coles just to name a few. Ryde Public School, Northcross Christian School and many other schools. Ryde is a very safe area to live or work.

"Handy location"

I lived in Ryde for 15 years and was very happy there. While the lack of a train station seemed inconvenient at first, it removed that 'scummy' element you get with stations. I liked that as a lone female, I could get buses home late at night and feel perfectly safe. The buses take you everywhere, including to West Ryde station. There are some good restaurants (particularly like the Indian one just opened on Blaxland Road) and a great library. Holy Cross College is a decent school for boys (my bro went there). It's a shame the suburb has been overdeveloped. I prefer the old Ryde (pre new shopping centre).

"Easy access to almost every where"

Ryde is very central. It's not far to Parramatta, city or far in between. It has fantastic public transport with lots of buses to the city. You do not need a timetable. In the morning on weekdays, there wlll be buses every few minutes. You can even chosse which bus you want to get on. Ryde has a beautiful Ryde Park which is family friendly and pet friendly. Walking through the park is relaxing and very enjoyable.

The Top Ryde shopping centre is a great place to hang out with friends and family. Doing all the shopping and with the recent opening of cafe, restaurant eg Hurricane Grill, Japan City etc,

I have live in Ryde area for more than 15 years - it's a great and if I have a choice, I will choose Ryde.

"Ture place that closes to EVERYWHERE"

I am talking about a place that geographically at the central of great Sydney (within 13km from City). With lots of newly build house and very good Shopping Centre. Within 20 mins by Car, you can reach most of the POI around Sydney (only complain is a bit far to beach which takes longer to reach)

Transport to City is good, bus to city almost every 5 mins with express route during peak hours from Shopping Centre, such as 515, 518, 518, 501, 520, alternatively park you car at West Ryde and jump on the train.

Living expense is not the cheapest however totally affordable, there are 4 Woolworth around this area, Located at Macquarie Centre, North, Top and West Ryde. Most stuff can be found at New Top Ryde City. Forget to mention Sydney Market is only 15min by Driving if want to buy really cheap fruit & vegies. DFO is even closer if you want some discount brand stuff. IKEA located at Rhodes also can be reached in less than 10min driving.

For outdoor activities, 5 mins driving to Putney water front park for picnic or walk to the local park which is great place for kids to play.

No night life identified so far apart from local Pub or TAB however there are a few restaurant at top ryde or west ryde provide decent food open quite late during week days. Or try Eastwood since many Korean and Chinese shops & restaurant in that area. I watch night match at Olympic Stadium once or twice a month at homebush, again 10 mins driving. Of course you can enjoy 3D movie in Hoyts at night also.

Schools is not superb over other area but you feel happy to send you kids to there. Similar to the Medical Centre, GP’s skill is not bad either. Nearest hospital is Ryde hospital, 10 min driving to Concord Hospital. 20min to Royal North Shore Hospital, 30min to Westmead Hospital.

No comment about demographic, there are heap of resources for this kind of research. The feeling I have is the whole area is renovating itself. New park build, new house build, new apartment build, new shopping centre build, such as North Ryde, West Ryde, Rhodes, Top Ryde. Not sure about the property market but definitely better than average.

For olders, there are a few retirement village operating, which I am too young to expeirence. The Ryde council is quite good in terms of planning, managing and maintaining local community.

Great for

  • Close to most of the places
  • Self renovating
  • Good potential

Not great for

  • A little crowded

- Close to ANZ Stadium.
- Lots of shops to choose from.
- Needs more nightlife, trendy cafes, etc.

An up and comer!

"Lived here all my life"

I wouldn't go anywhere else unless I had to. Very close to the city yet still a suburb and you can get a good backyard without going broke.

"Congestion galore on a daily basis"

Ryde is located in the northeast of Sydney. There is a mix of residential units and houses around this area. Lately, there has been a lot of development going around the town centre. There are cafes, shops, Top Ryde shopping centre and supermarkets around the area. However, there is no train station in Ryde and residents have to depend on public buses to get around.

Additionally, it is best to avoid driving through Ryde during peak hours. Often, traffic gets very congested along Victoria Road and Devlin Street all through to Lane Cove Road and Homebush Bay Drive. You will need to give yourself double the journey time if you are going to drive through Ryde to get to your destination during peak hours.

"Flat and Boring"

Ryde has become in the last 30 years a mish mash of private homes, high rise flats, car yards and shops. When Top Ryde Shopping Centre closed for redevelopment several years ago, the area lost its community centrepoint. The homes of the 50s are gradually being demolished and replaced by more modern ones, but many of the modest original homes remain.
