"A pleasant place with some gems hidden in the bush"

Ingleside is a suburb of Sydney 28 kilometres north-east of the CBD in the local government areas of Pittwater and Warringah Councils but still considered to be in the Northern beaches district of Sydney. It is approximately 2 kilometres inland from Mona Vale and the coast

The suburb is bounded on the north by Kuring-Gai Chase, the east by Bayview, Mona Vale, Warriewood, Elanora Heights and Narrabeen, the south by Oxford Falls and Cromer and to the west by Terrey Hills and Kuring-Gai Chase. The population in 2006 was 788 with 30% under 18 and 19% over 60. 90% of the dwellings are separate houses and 19% are being rented.

Ingleside is really a rural area with quarries, market gardens and best of all the Baha’i House of Worship. Mona Vale Road is a pleasant drive through bushland that is burnt regularly.

Powder Works Road takes its name from the Gunpowder and explosives factory established there in the 1880s. On the corner of Powder Works Road and Waratah Road is the Monash Country Club. The club was burned to the ground in December 1957. It was rebuilt much larger and more luxurious in 1959 when it was raised to Group 1 status by the New South Wales Golf Association in 1959.

Sydneyexpat Interesting to look at this review as we grew up nearby. We have moved to a similar acreage area on the Gold Coast called Elanora (coincidentally). It is about 5km from Currumbin Beach. Used to be dairy farms and banana growing area. It is also near a beautiful golf course in Tallebudgera Valley. There are small village type primary schools such as Ingleside (in Tallebudgera Valley) and Currumbin Valley state school. I guess that is why we feel at home up here and we don't have traffic and pollution issues anymore.
