Waitara is a small suburb in Sydney's Upper North Shore. This is an up-and-coming area that's seen consistently rising home prices and has made various "best suburb" lists for its liveability and walkability. Because it is in high demand homes don't change hands often here.

Though mostly residential, there are a handful of businesses near the local train station, including a health club and RSL. If you're looking for a greater selection it's just a short walk to the shopping in dining hub in the adjacent suburb of Hornsby.

For housing there are big apartment complexes around the station. Go another 100 meters or so, however, and you'll find attractive streets with single-family homes.

At the center of the suburb is a park with an athletic field and tennis courts.

Waitara is bordered on the west and north by Hornsby and on the east and south by Wahroonga.
