Suburb Profile


Killara, on the Upper North Shore of Sydney, is a prestigious leafy suburb with a range of elegant architectural designs that combine period homes with contemporary abodes.

Notably, Killara was home to iconic Australian architects Harry and Penelope Seidler, whose heritage listed home Killara House is considered their most important work and stills stands on Kalang Avenue. Their former home is opened annually each November with Penelope Seidler herself conducting tours.

Killara’s luscious National Trust listed Swain Gardens, donated to Ku-ring-gai Council by Sydney bookseller Mr Swain, is open to the public within daylight hours. Greengate Park is another well-designed local garden space with picnic tables, barbeque facilities and play equipment.

Killara Public School and Beaumont Road Public School are top ranking primary schools; both small in numbers and situated in quiet streets, and Killara High School is repeatedly one of the highest performing non-selective government secondary schools in New South Wales. There are also top quality private schools nearby.

For retail options, Chatswood’s shopping precinct is easily accessible from Killara, or a short train ride away is Sydney’s CBD or Macquarie Centre. Killara railway station is on the North Shore Line of the Sydney Trains network. The Pacific Highway is Killara’s main traffic artery and is a short drive from the M1 and M2.
