"Beach Bliss"

Bulli is a great little suburb just within reach of Sydney. Of course the beach at your door is a huge draw card but there is more. The people are friendly and the lifestyle is just a bit slower than the big city to the north making coming home a little like going on holiday. The little cafes make casual lunches on sunny days fantastic and all the big shops are just minutes away. Transport is easy with buses, trains and roads all very accessible and it's easy to excercise with the beautiful walking track that runs from Thirroul all the way to the Gong. The mix of people is broad with everyone from young families to the retired here and people from all walks of life. Our experience has been that Bulli is a very safe place to live too. I would encourage anyone to come and experience what Bulli is.
Pros
  • Proximity to Sydney
  • beach

Cons

"Seaside town living"

Lovely historic town, amazing escarpment and beaches. All rapidly being marred however by over developed 'mcMansion style' homes. Close to beach , just dont look back at the overdevelopment. Locals who care have protested about what happens here but sadly the developers have been winning everytime. Beaches get overrun by Sydney Westies every Australia Day holiday so you have been warned. The train squeals at night , residents of new MacCauleys beach estate will find out that one soon enough :)
Pros
  • beach
  • bush views
Cons
  • big ugly new houses
  • dog poo on beaches
  • overdevelopment, train noise
