BALGOWLAH

GET TO KNOW
THE AREA

This area encompasses everything the Northern Beaches is known for – stunning scenery, tree-lined streets and a relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere. If you can call Balgowlah, North Balgowlah or Balgowlah Heights home, then you’re set!

Lifestyle

At the southern end of the Northern Beaches region, Balgowlah, North Balgowlah and Balgowlah Heights are hidden hotspots – they’re quieter and quainter than their neighbours, and that’s how the locals like it.

A mecca for families, this cluster of suburbs has highly sought-after schools, a strong community spirit, and is home to lush, green spaces and sporting fields. Beautiful harbour beaches and bushland – part of Sydney National Park and Gadigal National Park – are only minutes away. When it comes to shopping, locals don’t have to venture far from their villages, but when they do, bigger hubs like Manly and Mosman are close by.

At the southern end of the Northern Beaches region, Balgowlah, North Balgowlah and Balgowlah Heights are hidden hotspots – they’re quieter and quainter than their neighbours, and that’s how the locals like it.

A mecca for families, this cluster of suburbs has highly sought-after schools, a strong community spirit, and is home to lush, green spaces and sporting fields. Beautiful harbour beaches and bushland – part of Sydney National Park and Gadigal National Park – are only minutes away. When it comes to shopping, locals don’t have to venture far from their villages, but when they do, bigger hubs like Manly and Mosman are close by.

The area lends itself to an active lifestyle, and locals are often out and about, doing the Manly to Spit Bridge Walk, relaxing at Reef Beach, and biking, bushwalking and indulging in water sports at nearby Manly Dam. Once a year, Balgowlah Heights Public School hosts the Balgowlah Bolt, a fun run that brings the whole community together at the much loved Tania Park.

For those who commute to the city and beyond, Balgowlah, North Balgowlah and Balgowlah Heights offer daily bus services. Coming home to the beaches feels like a holiday, so for residents, the travel time is worth it.
