My time in Wahroonga, New South Wales- Australia

My time in Wahroonga, New South Wales- Australia

My time in Wahroonga, NSW was very short but for most of it, it was an enjoyable experience. Although I was put off by my workaway experience, have a little read. 

I did enjoy my visit to the small suburb that is Wahroonga. Just the name itself fascinates me… it’s an aboriginal word that means ‘my home’.  The shops and cafes there are quaint and sweet with several coffee houses, sushi places and a little book shop. This suburb is full of wildlife with random turkeys crossing the road and parrots just casually wondering the skies. Head just ten minutes on the train to Hornsby where a fancy Westfield stands tall with amazing shops and cute little restaurants. If you do head to Westfield, Hornsby. I recommend eating at ‘Salsa’s fresh Mex’– where they have gluten free things.. YAY! I’ve been craving their guacamole ever since I had their Tacos. A cute little shop to have a nosey in is ‘Adore homeware and gifts’- I can’t find the website for this.. so it’s literally one of a kind.

Everything in there was either turquoise or Buddha related.  When I do finally settle down, I will be venturing there just to grab my hands on this beauty of a cabinet.


Another cute shop is ‘Seaweed and Sand’. Of course everything in here relates to the sea.


Whilst we were at Hornsby we did manage to see the new hunger games film at their cinema, which was amazing!!!- Definitely recommend.  I also did get a wax whilst there at ‘Nirvana Beauty’ this amazing salon, where they really took their time. Overall it was a fantastic service (Even though Luke wasn’t happy about waiting an hour).

I think whilst we stayed at Wahroonga- which was 40 minutes outside Sydney. We got very comfortable, as we spent most of our days and evenings chilling by the pool or watching movies in our room. But we did manage to film a couple of bits, so check them out below.

    Sounds very enjoyable. I always like to read about places which are not as common as for example Sydney. Definitely interesting to learn something about a country 🙂
