If you live in Sydney, chances are that every day on your way to work you drive past Oyster Bay NSW. With a population of just over 11,000 people (and growing), it’s one of the fastest-growing suburbs within Australia. It’s also an unincorporated area and is governed by the Ku-ring-gai Council.
It might seem like all there is to do here is go shopping at Westfield Warringah Mall or take part in some sporting activities at the Warringah Aquatic Centre – but that couldn’t be further from the truth! In fact, there are plenty of things to do for locals and tourists alike when they visit this coastal suburb:
Have a picnic at a park
There are many parks around Oyster Bay, including:
Moss Vale Pool
This outdoor swimming pool has been open for over 50 years now, providing locals with an opportunity to swim in between their busy schedules. It’s Olympic-sized as well as heated so it doesn’t matter what time of year you visit!
The Warringah Aquatic Centre
If you’re looking for something more active then why not try some water sports? This centre provides aquatic activities such as kayaking or canoeing lessons (there are lots of schools nearby). You can also have fun watching people surf at Manly beach while standing on the grounds.
One of the best areas to shop in this part of Sydney is Warringah Mall, which has everything from clothing stores like Kmart and Target to food court restaurants such as McDonald’s or Subway. If you want something a little more luxurious then why not try Woolworths? They have their own café so if you’re feeling peckish for some lunchtime treats they’ll be able to help!
Oyster Cove Community Centre
There are plenty of places where locals can meet up with friends around Oyster Bay – one that should definitely make your itinerary is Oyster Cove Community Centre at Wanda Street. It provides space for children’s activities, social functions as well as special events.
