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
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.
When the sun sets, residents spill into
restaurants and pubs, or head to neighbouring suburbs like Bondi and Clovelly
for even more options.
the streets of Waverley is like taking a walk through history. There are
charming Victorian terraces scatted around the suburb – in the past Waverley
was a prestigious place to settle down in. The terraces sit next to modern
apartments and townhouses occupied by professionals and couples, and sprawling
homes to suit bigger families. The tree-lined backstreets are in hot demand,
especially those on the Bronte and Tamarama Beach side.
