WAVERLEY

GET TO KNOW
THE AREA

Bordered by beaches and Bondi Junction, Waverley is the best of both worlds. Its village feel makes it a perfect place for families and professionals, who whiz to the city on trains and buses before coming home to a suburb known for its charm and community.  

Lifestyle

Nestled between Bondi Junction and the beaches of Bronte, Tamarama and Clovelly, Waverley is the king of convenience. It’s also pretty in its own right, thanks to the tree-lined streets and lush, family-friendly parks. On any given day, you’ll spot locals taking their puppies to the park (dogs are free to roam around the eastern end of Varna Park), striding to the beach to soak up the sun and do the scenic coastal walk, or popping in and out of the shops.

Charing Cross Village is a local gem. It’s bustling with boutiques, niche shops, supermarkets, fruit and vegetable markets, hair salons, fitness studios, cafés and restaurants, so residents don’t need to go far to get what they need. Otherwise, the multi-level Westfield is 15 minutes away by foot, and barely five by car. The centre has an array of shops and department stores, as well as a cinema. It’s also a major transport hub, with regular trains and buses to the city, airport and surrounds.

GREEN SPACES

Locals love getting outside and taking advantage of the suburb’s parks. There are four (Marlborough Reserve, Varna Park, Macpherson Park and Simpson Park), and all have playground equipment for the kids to enjoy. Varna Park also has off-leash dog areas, and you’ll often see neighbours chatting while watching their pets play.

Keen shoppers stroll down the strip of boutiques and homewares stores, while others catch up at the many cafés and restaurants or stock up on supplies at gourmet food markets. The village also boasts a couple of pubs, including the Art Deco-style Charing Cross Hotel. 

FAMILY-FRIENDLY SCENE

With several primary and high schools in the catchment, Waverley is ideal for raising a family. The village vibe and quiet streets make it a peaceful place and everything you need is at your fingertips – supermarkets, cheap and cheerful restaurants, parks, beaches, sporting fields and studios.
