Lower North Shore real estate
The Lower North Shore is located on the northern shore of Sydney and is surrounded by Middle Harbour to the east and Lane Cove River to the west. Connected to the city by Sydney Harbour bridge, the region offers spectacular views of the harbour, hidden harbour beaches and a peek into the lives of some of Sydney’s most affluent residents.
The population is over 100,000 in these suburbs, and house prices are generally high, with median house prices (2021) averaging between $2 million and $4.2 million.
Things to see and do on the Lower North Shore
The commercial centre of the region is North Sydney, consisting of towering office buildings, shopping arcades and a small nightlife scene. Just next to North Sydney are the popular suburbs of Milsons Point and Kirribilli. From here you’ll see the northern foundations of the harbour bridge, great view of the city skyline and of course historic Luna Park.
For nature and history lovers the beautiful Blues Point Reserve sits right on the harbour foreshore offering perfect views of the Harbour Bridge, or Balls Head Reserve at Waverton which is home to a historic aboriginal rock carving. Headland Park at middle head offers easy bushwalking as does the Mosman walks that meander through beautiful shorefront trails through the trees and ‘bushland’ in Mosman. Milson’s Point, Waverton and Mosman provide fantastic swimming at harbour beaches and harbour pools. And of course, a must visit is the world famous Taronga Zoo, while the animals are amazing the backdrop is world class.
Or, if you are looking for something more subdued, Wendy Whiteley’s secret garden in lavender bay gives you an ideal place to enjoy Australian exotic plants with the backdrop of the city skyline.
If shopping is more your thing head to the Kirribilli markets or explore the diverse range of boutiques along Raglan Street in Mosman Village.
The Lower North Shore has a great range of places to eat and drink from authentic Italian pizza, through to fine dining in St Leonards, buzzing coffee shops and happening bars.
With all the Lower North Shore has to offer; its proximity to the playground of Sydney Harbour and Sydney’s CBD, it’s no wonder the region is a popular place for Sydney’s most affluent residents.
