"Feel at home in Berkeley Vale"

The place to grow up and go to school, chill down at the lakeside or retire in style. The weather on the coast is always beautiful and not at either end of the scale. You can find beautiful modern homes here or get your hands on some classic antiques with loads of character. Want to live the social life? Here's where you can start!
Pros
  • Beaches are nice and close
  • Shopping is a breeze
  • Major medical right next door just in case

"Sea For Yourself!"

Berkeley Vale is very popular for those wanting to make the sea change from Sydney. I myself made the move approximately nine years ago and have never looked back. One of the first things I noticed, was when I went for a morning walk, fellow walkers all greeted me with a "good morning" and a smile that just made my day. I since then have had a daughter and refuse to raise her anywhere else in the world.
It is beautiful the way the community sticks together, supports each other and is never short of a helping hand.
The cost of living is still reasonable as apposed to areas of Sydney. What's more is the value for money in purchasing a home. You can obtain lake front properties for the same price a shack in Sydney would cost. The bush tracks are amazing, and there is always something new to be discovered. A weekend drive along the central coast is always going to lead to a new adventure.
Living here, never ceases to amaze me. From the local wildlife to the friendly people you pass in the street. It is a community that just keeps on with infrastructure as well. We have so much available to us up here from Amazingly Large shopping centres to Doctors on hand and transportation abundance.

"A great established neighborhood"

I have been living at Berkeley Vale for over 15 years now & I love it!! It has a great spirit of people, plenty of sporting facilities, a good public school & high school. It has great public transport, it's only 6 minutes to the train station & about 8 minutes to the F3 freeway. There is a gorgeous walking or riding track right along the lake. Plenty of restaurants, take away food, gyms & shopping centres nearby. Mingara Recreation Club is also nearly on your doorstep. It is a safe area & ideal for families, singles, couples or retirees. All this & still only about a 6 minute drive to the beaches.
