Peaceful and affluent by nature, Wahroonga emanates a quaint village-like charm with beautiful estate homes and manicured gardens. Nestled in-between the tranquil surrounds of Ku-ring-gai and Lane Cove National Parks in Sydney’s upper north shore, Wahroonga is a natural drawcard for families seeking the community centric lifestyle.
In all its style, elegance and charm, Wahroonga loves to show off its historic architectural homes with feature gardens, and the more intimate cottages that talk to a bygone era, all of which are perched along leafy tree-lined streets.
Families though are drawn to this enclave as much for the schools as they are for the quiet neighbourhood, with prestigious Knox Grammar, Abbotsleigh School for Girls and Barker College at their doorstep. Beautiful Wahroonga Park and the active environment of The Glade are the perfect add-ons.
At the heart of the neighbourhood is the Wahroonga Village which is brimming with boutique, gourmet and stylish family-run businesses, including local cafes, the Coonanbarra Café, which is located in the beautifully restored Sir John Sulman designed home from 1894, and the rusty chic décor of The Butcher’s Block.
Throughout the year, Wahroonga Village plays host to numerous community events, such as the popular Wahroonga Food and Wine Festival, Twilight Concert in the Park and Wahroonga Village Fair.
