"As the azure blue water gently kisses the golden beaches, you realise that really there is no better place to be"

Great for walking, kayaking, sailing, generally messing about on and in the water. Cycling is a popular pursuit along the Pittwater Road shoreline, and you will find the dog walking locals very sociable, always a good morning or How are you going. Coffee at Q cafe or Bayview kiosk is popular on a weekend morning - be sure to get there early, or book yourself into the Green Pearl Thai for an evening meal and watch the sunset over the Kuringai National Park whilst enjoying the views to Barrenjoey lighthouse. All in all a great place to live!

"Bayview Boats abound"

Bayview is bounded to the north by Broken Bay and Mona Vale on the East and South and Church Point and Kuringai Chase and Ingleside to the west. It is a low density suburb with lots of mature trees. In 2006 its population was 3013 of which 21% are under 18 and 37% are over 60.

31 kilometres north of Sydney CBD the main traffic routes for Bayview are Pittwater Road leading south and Mona Vale Road which angles west to the Pacific Highway, both of which are very busy at either end of the work day.

There are hundreds if not thousands of boats and yachts scattered all around the Bayview coastline. Piers and marinas abound. It is interesting that from a bird's eye view that there appears to be no obvious marine traffic lanes.

It is a hilly suburb so the views are quite excellent. The houses are quite large with many having large outdoor swimming pools. There are many mature trees all through the land. Whilst this makes for a pleasant existence, it is also a little nervous come fire season. The northern suburbs are notorious for their bush fires.

Overall, Bayview is a very pleasant place to visit and I am sure that it is a joy to live in.
