CAMMERAY At A Glance
Tucked away on Sydney’s lower north shore, Cammeray has a quiet charm that captivates young families, and although this picturesque neighbourhood likes to keep a low profile, the hidden gems – a sense of community and leafy surrounds – are what truly define the neighbourhood.
The close proximity to the city while still feeling worlds away.
When games aren’t in play, Tunks Park Sports Field turns into a dog park. Tucked away at the western end are bush tracks.
Cammeray takes its name from the Cammeraygal people, an Aboriginal clan that occupied the area.
Leafy streets and manicured gardens are the backdrop to this family-centric neighbourhood. Living within arm’s reach of Sydney Harbour and the bustling CBD, Cammeray residents enjoy the best of both worlds – they can choose to be part of the action in the city or relax in a quiet, neighbourly environment.
Miller Street is the main commercial hub, with its own café and dining scene that spills out onto the footpaths and courtyards. Stockland Shopping centre is a go-to place where kids can play games and scramble around the water fountain as parents keep a watchful eye from the alfresco cafés and restaurants.
Turks Park on Middle Harbour with its bushland and walking trails is popular green space, home to weekend sports enthusiasts including boaties, who take advantage of the boat ramp that takes small vessels into Middle Harbour.
Green Park Village is an intimate grouping of shops that sits opposite hilly Cammeray Golf Course and Cammeray Tennis Courts.
The biggest drawcard for many residents is the highly-regarded Cammeray Public School and ease of access to some of Sydney’s finest educational institutions.
Families flock to this neighbourhood as much for the beautifully restored Federation homes and quiet leafy streets as for the schools. Although popular among established professionals and their families, budding executives and mature independents love this area for the location as well as the small bar and brunch scene.
