Balgowlah
Balgowlah 
Large homes, tree lined streets and a sub tropical feel. A great place for families. 

Balgowlah, Sydney (north shore)

Balgowlah is only two suburbs away from Manly but has a very different, quieter feel. It’s got wide tree lined streets, big houses on big blocks, and well kept apartment buildings. There are also quite a few apartment blocks in Balgowlah but they tend to be smaller and many are of the Art Deco era. Balgowlah is a very relaxed and safe suburb that is more likely to attract families and older people, though young couples and singles priced out of Manly market are moving in. The village shopping centre has a community feel. Buses are the only form of public transport. But if you want to get to the city centre, try taking the bus to Manly and then catching the ferry. Yes, it can be time consuming but the scenery via the ferry is gorgeous. There are plenty of parks in Balgowlah that hug the coastline and offer spectacular views.
