Killarney Heights is located 11 kilometres north of the Sydney CBD in the local government area of Warringah. It is about a 20 minute drive to the beaches and a 30 minute drive outside peak hour to the city. Commuting to the city takes around 40 minutes via regular bus services. Bus services running between Dee Why and Chatswood along Warringah Road are due to be bolstered to coincide with the opening of the Northern Beaches Hospital in 2018.
Killarney Heights is a predominantly low density housing area, featuring many older homes dating back to the 1960’s on medium sized blocks of land. Knock down and rebuilds have also been popular over the last decade. Due to the strict planning laws imposed by Warringah Council, apartments are not very common in the area.
There are a few local restaurants and cafés in Killarney Heights, however locals will need to visit The Centre in Forestville for their groceries and more cuisine choices including Japanese, Chinese, Thai and Italian. Westfield Chatswood is just 15 minutes’ drive and Westfield Warringah Mall (which currently being expanded to offer more than 340 stores in total and additional parking) is 20 minutes away.
The local schools are Killarney Heights Public School and Killarney Heights High School, which is well regarded in the area. Oxford Falls Grammar and Roseville College are also both within easy driving distance and both have consistently high academic NSW rankings.
Many running, walking and mountain bike trails surround Garigal National Park. Jetts gym is located at The Centre and the Roseville Marina and boat ramp is just down the road for water activities such as yachting, fishing, kayaking and water skiing. Forestville War Memorial Playing Fields including Melwood Sportsfields are a designated off-leash dog area and host a range of sports including AFL, rugby, soccer, cricket. There are also new cricket nets, netball and basketball courts and tennis courts (owned by Forestville Park Tennis Club) available for use. The reserve also has a picnic area with barbeques, public toilets and a playground.
Surrounded by a number of parks and wildlife reserves, Killarney Heights is an ideal family friendly environment for growing kids. Proximity to the beach, recreation areas and relative affordability are the key drivers.
