Suburb Profile: Waverton, NSW

Surrounded by breath-taking views right along the bay, the renowned suburb of Waverton showcases the charm that only the North Shore of Sydney can bring. This New South Wales town is highly regarded for its central location right between the popular Balls Head Bay and Berrys Bay. Just a stone thrown away, it is situated just a close 4km north of Sydney’s booming Central Business District. The town was named in 1929 after the Waverton Estate and is well-known for its cultural significance.
