"Like living in the country but only 10 mins to Hornsby, 40 mins to the city on the train."

Some of the houses in Mt K have wonderful private bush views and are very private. The local primary school is small and has one of the best reputations in the area. On the weekends you see many bush walkers heading out for the day down to the water along with local kids with their fishing rods. No loud music, no fast driving just a beautiful environment and so close to everything. Mt K has a very stable population with most people owning their own homes which makes it a fantastic place to raise children, they make long term wonderful friendships. Not many suburbs in Sydney offer this kind of lifestyle.
Pros
  • beautiful bushland vistas
  • country living in the city
  • is becoming more and more popular

"Love at First Buy"

In a world of its own, Mount Kuring-gai has a fiercely loyal group of locals that love their town with a passion, yet are accepting of new friendly comers. Populated mostly with both young families and elderly dwellers alike, it has a distinctly country town feel. Split into two sides, East and West of the railway line and F3 with each half seeming preferring their own chosen side. Great school, shops, bush walks, vistas and people.

"A great place to call home!"

Mount Kuring-Gai is one of the most beautiful places to live in. The village atmosphere in Mt Kuring-Gai is probably the nicest, friendliest and safe community you could ever wish for. The surroundings of Mt Kuring-Gai is the beautiful AUSSIE bush which is teaming with all the wildlife that inhabits the area. My family and I have lived in Mt kuring-gai for over 13 years and have found it to be a very peaceful and happy place to live in.
