SEAFORTH & CLONTARF At A Glance
Secluded bays, foreshore bushlands and a close-knit community are what make Seaforth and Clontarf some of Sydney’s most sought-after neighbourhoods on the northern side of the bridge. Situated on a hillside overlooking moored yachts in the beautiful setting of Middle Harbour, Seaforth and Clontarf boast luxurious yet comfortable homes.
Being on the doorstep of Manly and Middle Harbour.
When Clontarf Beach is busy, head around to Castle Rock, a small beach off the Spit to Manly walk in the National Park.
In 1868 there was an assassination attempt on Queen Victoria’s son, Prince Alfred, the Duke of Edinburgh, while he attended a picnic at Clontarf.
With Garigal National Park, Manly and the expanses of Middle Harbour at their doorstep, families who are lucky enough to find their home along one of the beautiful wide streets, tend to stay put, making this a much sought-after area.
Savouring the water views from their hillside abodes, locals are particularly spoiled during migration season as they watch dolphins play in the water from the privacy of their own homes.
The serene parks and bushlands seem worlds away from the bustle of Sydney – Sangrado Bay and Pickering Point remain a local secret whilst Clontarf Reserve is the backdrop to many waterside weddings. The shaded grassy area, sandy playground and shallow waters make Clontarf a popular picnic and fishing spot for families.
Foreshore walks draw Sydneysiders from all over, be it the renowned Spit Bridge to Manly walk or the much shorter Fisher Bay walk. In the warmer months kayakers can be seen exploring the secluded coves and bays.
This community-centric neighbourhood, which consists largely of families with children, has lots of private schools. The cluster of shops along Sydney Road have a few local dining and coffee options but nearby Warringah Mall is the shopping hub.
