"Nice suburb"

Nice and leafy, walking distance to Chatswood and a really nice bushwalk Ferndale park. I really enjoyed living here and the conveniences to Chatswood. I would prefer it to Chatswood because it is so much more quiet. Fullers Rd always busy.

"Quiet and Leafy"

In contrast to the hustle and bustle of downtown Chatswood, most of Chatswood West is quiet, leafy and family friendly. Following the natural landscape, it slopes from the ridge along which the Pacific Highway is built, down to the Lane Cove River valley, which is hugged by the National Park of the same name. The busy Fullers Road is perhaps the only blot on the landscape, with area having a mixture of high, medium and low density homes. Chatswood High School, Chatswood Public School, lots of parks and easy access to the train station and busses make it an ideal family home location.
