"Very Boring"

Nice place to raise small children and to retire to. But very very boring for anyone over the age of 15 who enjoys a social live. Noisy neighbors too.
Pros
  • Access to picturesque Berowra Waters
  • Clean, green environment
  • Near the train line
  • Quiet
Cons
  • Eating out and local bar are terrible.

"Little piece of heaven"

We looked all over Sydney when deciding where to buy 7 years ago. Berowra stood out a mile for its relaxed country town atmosphere, it is quiet, bush surrounds, friendly locals and wildlife.
There is everthing you need in Berowra Heights, supermarkets, bank, schools, vet, dog park, gyms, cafes and restaurants (including the Berowra Waters Inn just down at the river).
Great local atmosphere, people always say hello and strangers stop for a friendly chat. The best neighbours we have ever encountered.
Whn people come to visit us they always say it feels like you are on holiday when in Berowra and Berowra Heights. It is clean, green and has a very creative community.
For us Berowra Heights is heaven.

"Kita Road - LOVE IT!!!!!!"

Perfect place for anyone, we know retirees, singles and families..everyone seems to love it here!!! We have the supermarket, doctor, vet, and bus stop approximately 4 minute walk away and schools only a few minutes more. With a real community feel and everything close by who wouldn't want to live here.

"A leafy haven for bush lovers and perfect for raising children"

Berowra Heights is a wonderful safe suburb, which has a lovely community spirit. It is safe enough still for children to ride their bikes and play cricket on the road!
The express trains that come from the Central Coast make it relatively easy to get into the city.
There are many wonderful outdoors activities to be experienced -bushwalking, boating at Berowra Waters.
Not ideal for families with teenagers/young adults if they are the sort who like night-life. Too far and public transport is dreadful late at night. They will need their own car.
Pros
  • Clean, green environment
  • Genuine community atmosphere
