Reviews of Wahroonga, NSW

"A bit sketchy"

I've seen teenagers go around robbing other teenagers and have heard stories of drug dealing as well as kids stealing alcohol and have witnessed a few brawls, apart from this it is a nice area where families can live and visit the park there.

"Great schools, Parks, friendly neigbours"

Wahroonga is close to many great public and private schools. It is a nice, leafy suburb with a friendly, neighbourly atmosphere. Close to public transport and great parks. Everyone is very friendly and happy to help one another.

"An amazing place to live and grow up in"

Wahroonga is all round an incredible place to live. Although it is a bit on the expensive side, it is worth it. Wide tree-lined streets, friendly neighbours, close to schools and shops but not industrial or over-crowded, plenty of parks.

"I have been living here for almost 15 yrs"

Wahroonga is surrounded by good schools like , Wahroonga Public School - 'The Bush School' , Prouille Catholic School, Abbotsleigh, Knox School. An excellent place to bring up children.

You can relax and enjoy nice coffee shops or eating out at popular restaurant like The Butcher's Block, Charmed by Hanuman Thai, Karoo & Co, La Zana Ristorante , The Station Wahroonga etc...at the village shopping centre or just go for a walk along tree lined streets especially in spring with nice blossom fragant . Very relaxing and very safe !!!

A big picnic park next to train station with lovely roses flowers (very well maintained) and established trees.
Once a year neighbours invite us over for Christmas party. Very friendly and welcoming neighbours.

Rentals in Wahroonga

"Perfect!"

After great effort we finally found a green, peaceful and quiet place to rise our family. We bought a few months ago our house and we are deeply in love in this place. I think that one of the advantages is the is distance between the houses (property size of more than 1000 SQM) and people dont make noise and are very polite. There are a lot of young families and people are very nice to each other.

Great for

  • Peace and quiet
  • Fresh air
  • Beautiful streets and houses
  • Great schools

Not great for

  • Limited car parking near the train station

"Wahroonga - the aboriginal word for our home"

We moved to Wahroonga 4 years ago and keep discovering new and wonderful things. The neighbours are wonderful. Not instrusive, but communual when it comes to street parties, trick or treating, or national celebrations. I like that we know them, but don't see them all the time! The streets are green and leafy. Wahroonga is known as the green village. Shopping options are good with St Ives shopping village, hornsby westfield, Belrose homemaker centre, castle hill mega shopping area and chatswood mall all close by. We are spoilt for choice. We also have all the village shops too in many surrounding places. The northern beaches aren't far either. Grabbing a coffee and having a chat is easy and you can easily find a setting to suit the mood: secluded garden catch up or busy cafe, people watching cafes. There are a multitude of restaurants too. Not such a good choice for Hotels / pubs - but certainly the restaurants make up for that. Parking is easy at the train stations (40 mins to the city) and around the roads and parks. Medical facilities are wonderful. We have Hornsby hospital and the SAN private hospital (reknowned for maternity and elderly care) a short stones throw distance. My little girl gashed her head the other day and we went from home to hospital back to home in 30 mins. There are also lots of medical and dental practices around. Childcare is prolific too and of course people move to the area just to be close to the private schools... knox, abbotsleigh etc. Gym and fitness I've rated highly because we have a lot of outdoor exercising areas, bike tracks, dog walking areas, sports grounds and organised fitness. Yes we have the gyms, but we seem to be predominately an outdoor bunch up here - probably because we are so close to such great facilities provided by the council. House prices are high - and tend not to vary much regardless of what is going on in the world - but that's because people move here to live, have fun and stay knowing that it is a safe friendly environment. It's a wonderful area with fantastic facilities. I can't imagine ever moving house!

"Safe, environment loving community"

People in Wahroonga are very friendly and welcoming and the general area gives off this great fragrance of nature with the abundance of trees and other plants. There are also many private schools around the area with limited transport. But it wont be a problem for most people living there because if they can afford the houses, i'm sure they have a few cars(or at least one). I would recommend living here if you do not need to go past the city much because the transport is tiring to think about.

"A nice place to grow up"

This is a nice suburb to grow up in, especially away from the trainline but you don't need to go far to be in the midst of quiet leafy avenues. There are only a few heavily trafficed streets, just enough to buzz across. Public transport is however shocking, but if you can afford to live here, you'll likely be at least a two car (maybe even a four car) family.

It is however a really nice area to grow up in.
