"A Beautiful Valley with a River Running Through It - A Hidden Paradise"

I am truely blessed to have found this stunning Village called Woronora River and to have made it my home for the past 20 years. A stunning little valley, a village, a peaceful river, surrounded by bush and parkland, tucked away from the hussle and bussle of Sydney, but close enough to enough to Sydney and everything it has to offer.

Selling Real Estate in the place I love has been a truely pleasant experience, it's not hard to talk the buyers into living in such a beautiful area. There is a diversity of homes ranging from small riverside cottages, bush cottages, architectual designed stunners and simply amazing waterfront masterpieces.

Everything Woronora has to offer:

- The River - canoeing, swimming, boating, kayaking, safe sandy beaches
- Beautiful Parks
- Bush Walks
- Local RSL Club with Beer Garden and Restaurant - Very Quaint
- Fantastic local Thai Restaurant
- Riverside Cafe - Excellent for Breakfast and Lunch (Great Chicken Burgers)
- The Star BoatShed - hire boats / canoes / cafe / B&B / nice for coffee and breakfast on the terrace
- Local Primary School - Small, Friendly
- Boat Ramp -
- Prince Edward Park Beach - great for the kiddies
- Local Life Saving Club - Nippers on the River every Sunday
- Local Playing Fields - Soccer / Cricket by the river

Once you discover Woronora, you will never want to leave.

"All is not what it appears!"

Having lived in Woronora for over 10 years I found it
to be visually beautiful with some nice people. However of late
i'm saddened to say the area has changed dramatically. We have
cheap housing for rent in the caravan park with ex prisoners being
moved back into society. The crime rate has increased, the pollution
is in more abundance, there is a hoon mentality of whompers on the river
and a noticable increase in alcholism, drugs and grafitti. I wouldn't recommend it for
families as the river is now far too dangerous to swim. The fact that it also a flood
zone on the waterfronts was the catalyst for my departure having seen the
damage in brisbane.
Pros
  • visual aspect
  • proximity to water
  • bush setting
Cons
  • caravan park
  • whompers on boats
  • local club

"Been a Resident for 20 Years and Counting"

I was born and raised in Woronora and i am proud to call myself a Woronorian, i can tell you from personal experience that growing up in Woronora is unique and special and there aren’t many places left like this in the shire. i was lucky enough to grow up at the local primary school and lucky enough as a child to be able to enjoy growing up near the bush and the water. one thing that makes Woronora a great place is the people, Woronora tends to attract genuinely nice people and everybody is happy to give a nod or a hello with a smile as you pass by. Woronora is a Unique and beautiful place and i would recommend it to anyone considering to move.
