"The Science Centre"

Julius Avenue, off Delhi Road, originally accessed the grounds of the CSIRO Divisions. Over the last ten years however, the CSIRO sold off a lot of the land it occupied, and adjoining bushland and developers moved in to create a science and technology park in the area. Some divisions of CSIRO are still here but other companies like Microsoft have also moved in.

"Quiet and Homey"

This is a very pretty street, with pleasant homes and established gardens. The many large trees create a cool and fresh feel, and there is not a lot of vehicular traffic. Close to public transport, and the local Truscott Street Public School mean this street is popular with families.

"Some Traffic Noise"

Folkard Street is just one street back from the 6 lane Lane Cove Road, and so it does get some traffic noise. It has modest homes with pleasant gardens, and residents benefit from the street’s proximity to public transport, local Cox’s Road shops and schools. A nice family-oriented street.

"Short and sweet"

Collins Street runs just a couple of hundred metres off the busy Wicks Road, and is right near the bus stop to take residents to Macquarie Shopping Centre, for onward connections to points north south east and west. The homes here are pleasant and looked after, though the shadow of a gruesome murder that occurred here hangs over the street.

"Knock Em Down"

That seems to be the aim of anyone who has purchased properties here in the last ten years, as few of the original war service and housing commission homes remain here. In their place are double story homes, some with distant city views and the minimum garden for the block size.

"Very Quiet Street"

Sturdee Street leads from Morshead to Edmonson Street, but rarely sees much traffic. It is a quiet suburban street, with modest homes on large blocks. This combination leads to eventual redevelopment to more grander homes, and this has begun to take place here. Established, though uninspiring gardens frame these homes, but big backyards are perfect for families.

"Suburban Homes Galore"

Donald Street is a fairly non-descript suburban street with equally boring original houses built of fibro and tile. They are gradually being demolished to make way for larger, modern McMansions filled with people who appreciate the street’s proximity to the local public school and accessibility to buses to the city.

jf3 The street has a nice community feel. It is right near Blenheim park and is in walking distance to shops. I agree the city bus at the end of the street is quite handy. It is also one of the few streets in North Ryde within 1km to North Ryde Station.

"Field of Mars"

A long road, Quarry Road runs from Lovell Road, Eastwood, through to the Field of Mars park and historic cemetery. The road dips and weaves, especially around the Pidding Road intersection, and it carries a good deal of traffic, including buses in parts. The homes vary according to the busy-ness of the street, and at its most congested, at Lane Cove Road, there are home units.

"Opera Singer Streets"

Named after Dame Nellie, Melba Drive is one of several streets in what was once known as the “Dress Circle Estate”, now called East Ryde. The homes here were mostly built in the 60s and 70s and their architecture reflects this era. Level blocks mean creativity needs to be employed to make gardens interesting, which many of the homes here manage to pull off.

"It’s A Crescent!"

Numa Road runs off Twin Road, twice – because it is in fact a crescent. With original homes built in the 1950s, it is considered an established area. However some of these homes are being demolished to make way for newer, modern, two-storey houses. At the Twin Road end the road is quite high, with some homes getting distant city views.

"Bordering the hospital"

Badajoz Road runs from Cox’s Road to Quarry Road and forms, at one stage, one of the boundaries for the Macquarie Hospital grounds. These grounds create a parklike atmosphere for residents and a great place for walks. A fairly busy road, it has modest homes – several of which have made way for townhouse developments. There is a nursing home now on Badajoz Road and a service station.

Spencers Creek Road runs off the South West Rocks Road, just before it becomes Gregory Street. It is unsealed and leads into bushland. It forms the border of the Bi Lo shopping centre and a housing estate on its northen side, while on the southern side it is the rear of the commercial premises of the town’s light industrial area. Not a home-makers street, more of a service road than anything.

"Peaceful Rural Setting"

Back Creek Road runs off South West Rocks Road, and it services the rural residences along it. One way in, one way out. The farms were originally established in the early 1900s, and prospered as dairy farms due to the fertile floodplains and lush pastures. Labour intensive dairying has given way to diversification.

It’s hard to see why this was called Main Street – but there is a shop on the corner. Main Street is populated by flood-aware raised homes, and curls around to hug the Macleay River bank. This is the home of the local fishing fleet, and a walk down here will reveal the jetty and the line up of boats waiting to head out to sea.

There has long been easy access from the Pacific Highway to Smithtown by the Smithtown Road, but crossing the Macleay River to Gladstone was not so simple.

"Built for the Bullocky"

Prince Street is regarded as the main CBD street in this prosperous northern NSW town. It is very wide – with a generous island separating the north and southbound lands, with ample 45 degree angle parking on each side as well. A large timber centre in its early days, the road needed to be wide to allow for the turning of bullock teams which were used to transport the timber. This is a huge retail and commercial street, the hub of town.

"Southern Gateway to Kakadu"

This highway is arguably the more picturesque route out of Kakadu, as it travels from the escarpment downhill before reaching the Stuart Highway. The views from the escarpment can be spectacular and gives an appreciation of the immenseness of this National Park. Two lanes, and sealed, it is more winding that the Arnhem Highway gateway, and getting stuck behind a slow moving vehicle (or several tractors on a tractor-rally in my case!) can delay your journey considerably due to lack of passing opportunities. The World Heritage Listed sign at the entry to the park is a great photo opportunity, and is a short walk to the Mary River Roadhouse where travellers stop to refuel and refresh.

This is a major road in the Sydney network that carries a high volume of traffic daily. In its Epping section, it is two lanes each way, with traffic lights at Blaxland Road, Essex Street and Pembroke Street. Buses with stops along the road contribute to traffic congestion, but this eased somewhat when the M2 Toll Road was opened as a paid alternative.

"Rear Lane Access Only"

There are no homes with a Ferry Lane address as it serves as rear lane access only to homes in both Renwick Street and Alexandra Street. Most of the homes in these streets have garages facing Ferry Lane, and as a consequence there are lots of driveways meaning little parking. Only when there are no cars parked would two vehicles have room to pass each other.

"Home Unit Territory"

Just a small street, Raglan runs between Collingwood and Wolesley Streets and has been given over to home unit development, like many of the surrounding streets. It has easy access to the Wolesely Street Ferry Wharf, making it popular for commuters to the city who wish to avoid the traffic of Victoria Road. On street parking is very limited, mainly because of the number of driveways in the small street that service the apartments.

"To The Ferry"

Running from Victoria Road to The Wolesley Street Ferry Wharf, this street is highly sought after. While there are still some (very expensive) homes here, much of the street is devoted to luxury apartment buildings, most with pools, and some with waterfront access. Its proximity to the ferry gives it pleasant access to the city, but can also create traffic in peak times.

"Hugs The Waterfront"

St Georges Crescent is one of the premium addresses in Drummoyne. It hugs the waterfront, giving many residents sensational views of this part of Sydney Harbour. As a consequence, developers recognised the potential, and moved in with bulldozers to level the old homes and construct apartment blocks. On street parking is difficult, and the road can be narrow in parts. The northern end meets Wolseley Street, at whose end is the Ferry Wharf for ferry access to the city.

"Home of Birkenhead"

Running from the very busy Victoria Road through to Thornley Street near the waterfront, Roseby Street has few residences. It is the main feeder street to the Birkenhead Point commercial centre, where, especially on weekends, traffic can be terrible. On its western side is a multi-level carpark, while on the eastern side is the shopping and commercial complex, and entrance to another carpark, this one underground. This, combined with pedestrian use, makes it very busy, but mid-week is not problem at all.

"On To Five Dock"

Lyons Road is very busy as it takes traffic from Victoria Avenue, Drummoyne through to the Parramatta Road/Five Dock areas. At the Drummoyne end, there are few homes, with use being devoted to a commercial and retail purposes. Parking is difficult, and traffic lights try to manage the flow, but in peak periods, it can be a standstill.

"Short Cutters Beware!"

From Lyons Road to Birkenhead Point, Renwick Street runs parallel to the very busy arterial road, Victoria Road. Back in the day it was a popular short cut for drivers wanting to avoid the congestion and traffic lights of the main road, but traffic calming devices and stop signs have twarted any advantage. On street parking for visitors is still at a premium, with commuters parking here and catching a bus to the city. Many of the homes are very old, but have been restored and extended to suit modern needs. Those on the northern side of the street have rear lane access as well, and some have water views.

"Well named street"

Australian’s have a knack for stating the obvious in the naming of their streets, and Short Street is a classic example. It is a small stretch of bitumen road, between Philip Drive and Landsborough Street. Its northern side borders the freshwater creek bushland, a great example of dune regeneration. There are just a few houses in Short Street, who enjoy the quiet, bushland views.

"Its About The View"

With views west across the mouth of the Macleay River, this is a very desirable address in South West Rocks. The homes vary between pole type constructions (on the downhill slope), to McMansion type two story brick, charmless, biggest house you can get on the block, type buidings. However in recent years some magnificent homes have been built to take advantage of the views and to catch breezes. The homes on the crest of the hill are also rewarded with views of the South West Rocks waterfront village and the ocean beyond.

"Macleay River Bound"

This long, straight street carries drivers and walkers from the main town road, Gregory Street, through to the residential area known as "New Entrance". The street is well maintained, and low cost housing has been built in sections. Much traffic here is headed to the very large caravan and camping area that is bounded on one side by Gordon Young Drive, and on the other by the "Back Creek". It is the main access road to the popular fishing wall of the Macleay River.
