Lower North Shore and harbour The Lower North Shore,
This is a great area to live – good for families, excellent private and state schools to be chosen from.
The Lower North Shore comprises of Neutral Bay, Cremorne, Mosman and Kirribilli, and down to Manly. The areas just on the fringe are Cammeray North Sydney, Milsons Point Artarmon Greenwich Woolstencraft – these are some of the suburbs, all connected to the city via bus, train and in some cases ferries direct to Circular Quay. What a great way to go to the city in the morning and returning home at night time, leaving all your worries of the office life in the city.
There is nothing better than travelling home at night on the ferry with the seagulls going home to roost and using the thermals of the ferries to bring them home, the ferry stops at the wharves and the seagulls land in the sea to take off again when the ferry commences. It is a wonderful sight.
The lower north shore has some stunning views, looking back across the harbour to the Opera House, the Rocks and the city with the Bridge.
North head is on this side of the harbour. This is the northern side to the entrance and allows you in to the spectacular view of the harbour the bridge and surrounding areas.
The bridge, is a great way to travel to the office as well either by bus or train, great views and a sense of how large the harbour is.
The fully furnished properties here, are usually family homes.
The Zoo is situated in Mosman with awesome views of the city and the bridge. The Zoo has venue places which conferences, weddings, celebrations and dinners can be held
The Zoo is ever evolving with the update of animal enclosures grounds and activities.
Membership is relatively easy to achieve you will see parents with children after school visiting one or 2 animals.
There are many swimming pools and playing areas around the lower north shore to be enjoyed by all. Quite of few of the local schools use the ovals and playing areas for school sport.
The surfing beach is Manly, another great area plus going up the coast to Palm Beach.
Manly is great as one side of Manly is on the harbour side where the ferry comes in and the other side is the ocean.
Restaurants are plentiful with quite a few sporting views of the harbour or sea
The Lower North Shore is close to the city but yet far enough out of the city to feel like you are not living in the city.
Transport, beaches restaurants, café’s good shopping and many things to do and see around the area, from Aboriginal paintings, to Tunnels which were used in the wars for the storage of ammunition – of which can be viewed just contact the Council re times when they are open.
The navy used to have a base at Kirribilli where the submarines were moored. Mosman had the Army where it was the engineers and the Training and Technology section.
There is plenty of history to these suburbs .
The Sydney to Hobart yacht race can be seen from the shores of coastline in the harbour which is a magnificent sight when the Spinnakers are up and the yachts are racing towards the heads to be the first yacht out to the open sea and what an honour this is.
The Sydney Harbour is a magnificent harbour with many vantage points to see the spectacles happening on the harbour including the magnificent New Years Fireworks.
