Suburb Profile


Willoughby is located on the lower North Shore eight kilometres north of the Sydney CBD only a 12-minute drive into the city, or you can commute via the nearby Artarmon train station.

With parks, nature reserves, and Mosman beaches within easy reach, and close proximity to the city, Willoughby is a sought after address. Houses in the area are mostly Californian Bungalows with large, level backyards ideal for young families. The majority of Willoughby is non-conservation land, allowing buyers free reign to build the dream home.

Residents benefit from having three libraries within easy reach, along with Hallstrom Park (a family populated area known for its children playgrounds, as well as soccer, T-ball and softball fields), whilst the Willoughby Leisure Centre provides a lap pool, children's swimming area, gym, a baseball field, and basketball and netball courts.

Willoughby's food scene opens its arms to great cafes and restaurants sitting between shops in the area or next door at Chatswood's major retail outlets. Neighbouring buildings provide exhibition spaces and studio spaces, supporting artists and new work with the help of the Council.

The Willoughby Council offers guides to many walking tracks in the area including bushwalks exploring gully's, sandstone caves and rock formations, harbour side bushland, and endangered Blue Gum High Forest. Some of these walks feature historical information such as the location of Henry Lawson's cave and famed architect Walter Burley Griffin's creations. The Round Willoughby Walk is designed to connect many of these shorter walks.
