"Whatta place"

Duffys Forest is a suburb of Sydney 28 kilometres north of the CBD in the local government area of the Warringah Council but still considered to be in the Northern beaches district of Sydney.

It is bounded on the north, south and west by Kuring-Gai Chase and the east by Terrey Hills. The population in 2006 was 477 with 24% under 18 and 20% over 60. 15% of the properties are rented.

Terrey Hills Golf and Country Club is an 18 hole course with its own mini suburb "The Greenway" enclosed. The settlement consists of very nice, large and modern homes. In fact the whole suburb reeks of money and style.

The only rental property I found was a 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom house with heated pool, Jacuzzi and tennis court, costing just $1,950 per week with a bond of $7,800.

The suburb is surrounded by bushland and as such would be prone to bushfires. Not much chance of property damage though as the blocks are generally well watered lawns.

Interestingly, broadband internet is only connected to 62% of the houses. This is a surprising statistic.

Accommodation aside, the suburb sits astride a ridge, so the views of the adjacent bushland would be quite pleasant. All I can say is WOW Whatta place.
