Balgowlah is located North of the Spit Bridge and a 12 kilometre drive, north-east of the Sydney CBD. It shares the same postcode, 2093 with its adjoining suburbs of Balgowlah Heights, Clontarf, Manly Vale and North Balgowlah.
Balgowlah appeals to all ages with excellent bus transport facilities to Manly ferry, Warringah Mall, the city and further north of the beaches up to Palm Beach.
Balgowlah village shops located at the intersection of Sydney Road & Condamine St also provides access to the bustling hub of Stockland Balgowlah Shopping Centre for all major shopping options such as Coles, Fitness First and Club Totem. Balgowlah is also home to the newly updated Andrew ‘Boy’ Charlton Swim Centre which offers a spa, gym, crèche and array of indoor pools in addition to the older, existing outdoor pools.
There is an abundance of parks and reserves in 2093 with The North Harbour Reserve located just south on Condamine Street. It is a dog friendly spot with a child friendly playground and Forty Beans café which overlooks the park for a coffee or snack. The reserve also joins the Manly Scenic walkway, which you can take either to Manly or to the Spit Bridge with its stunning harbour walk to Forty Baskets beach and views to Jilling Cove and Manly Cove. A great spot to watch the Fireworks on NYE.
The NSW Government is committed to delivering the Beaches Link, connecting the Lower North Shore with the Northern Beaches. More information on this project can be found here.
