"A jewel in the shire"

We have lived her for over 18 years, and love the mix of young families and elderly residents.A popular walk around the peninsular , you will be greeted with a smile or a wave .maybe from someone you know or a stranger.A friendly neighbourhood , with local shops consisting of a chemist, post office, newsagent , hairdresser, bottle shop, bakery, Italian takeaway, coffee shop and corner store.5 min drive and there is a Coles , IGA or woollies .20 min walk to Jannali station , Jannali also boasts a variety of restaurants.local public school OBPS is a wonderful local public primary school.cannont recommend highly enough, with 3 daughters (now at Uni) having been there and currently a son, it is an excellent school.

"Who cannot love it!!!"

A great place for bringing up the kids ... looked in many suburbs then decided on Oyster Bay .... still believe it is the "undiscovered location" of the south .... been here for 8 years I think and I love it
