Wollstonecraft/Waverton

Quiet cottages, modern apartments, and tranquil parks reaching from the Pacific Highway to Berrys and Balls Head Bay.

Polite and well placed on Sydney’s North Shore, Wollstonecraft and Waverton are two pragmatic suburbs that appreciate their location on the quiet side of the harbor. Commuters rise with the sun and return to the area for afternoon excursions to its secluded parks and elevated lookout points. Residents do more than appreciate their view of the CBD from across the water—they travel there swiftly and easily by car, train, and bus.
