Killara

Suburb Profile

Overview

Pretty and peaceful, Killara is all about beautiful homes and high-end living. Bordered by two national parks, and with plenty of green space in-between, locals have ample room to stretch out and enjoy the serene surrounds. Add competitive schools and quick access to thriving hubs into the mix, and you have a suburb that many families aspire to.

Lifestyle

Period homes and plenty of greenery, Killara is one good looking neighbourhood. Founded as a gentlemen’s suburb, Killara has no commercial area per se. Where it lacks in food and retail options, it more than makes up for in golfing facilities, bushland and stunning homes with lush gardens.

Bordered by Lane Cove National Park to the west and Garigal National Park to the east, Killara has plenty of bush trails to explore. And those lucky enough to live close by relish in the wildlife. The local council takes a lot of pride in its well-maintained parks that are sprinkled throughout the neighbourhoods. 

Families have access to many prestigious schools in the area, and on weekends, sports are a regular fixture; soccer, hockey, cricket, tennis, and the beautiful Killara Golf Club which is the crown jewel of Killara. Premier golfing facility with lush grounds and lovely views – a meeting point since 1899.  

Along Pacific Highway, Greengate Hotel is a favourite hangout. There are a few stores as well, but blink and you will miss them. Locals are never left wanting though. Chatswood and Macquarie, both boasting thriving shopping complexes with entertainment and dining facilities, are a short drive away, while Killara Train Station has commuters into the city in under 30-minutes.

Big houses and with even bigger budgets to match, Killara is where Sydney’s elite and their families come to enjoy the more beautiful things in life.

The Market

House proud and rightfully so, Killara has quite the reputation for its grand old homes. Striking abodes that hail from times passed; Tudor revival, Federation and Old English, all with meticulously maintained gardens. But none other are quite like the famed Harry Seidler home on Kalang Avenue – a 1960s era contemporary design.

Homes with private tennis courts are the norm and many properties in East Killara back onto bushland. Like the rest of Killara, nothing is done on a small scale, with a blend of character-filled and modern apartments that boast house-sized proportions.
