About Crows Nest

Cafe Culture

Identified as Sydney’s most liveable spot in the Urban Index of 2015, Crows Nest or ‘Crowie’ is famous for its diverse strip of restaurants, boutique shopping and family-friendly gathering spaces. Offering a real ‘village’ atmosphere, this Lower North Shore gem rests just 5km to the CBD and provides excellent transport options for easy movement around the city.


A mix of commercial and residential areas, the quiet streets and laneways of Crows Nest are home to sophisticated apartment blocks which sit comfortable beside character semi’s and freestanding homes. With something for all sectors of the market, it’s always in hot demand and offers exceptional buying with solid growth for the future.


Focused on community, at the centre of Crows Nest village is the village green where markets and the hugely successful Crows Nest Festival are held. The Crows Nest Community Centre which borders the green provides a wealth of free and cheap activities to bring the residents together.


Centred on the junction of five main roads and a very recognisable landmark rests the iconic and historic Crows Nest Hotel. The cornerstone of Crows Nest, it offers live music and trivia and comedy shows and is a favourite gathering spot. Running down Willoughby Road is a superb selection of cafes, restaurants and eateries providing everything from a good burger to Persian fare.


With its central location, it’s never hard to move around from Crows Nest with express bus services running along the Pacific Highway, Falcon Street and Miller Street. A new Metro Light Railway Station has been flagged for the area which will add to its already considerable appeal. The area is surrounded by a wide selection of public and private schools including North Sydney Girls and Boys High and Cammeraygal High School.
