Enjoying extensive views over Middle Harbour, Killarney Heights has a number of bush walks through Garigal National Park. These walks are suitable for people of all fitness levels and our personal favourite is the one that takes you from the bottom of Killarney Drive, down to Flat Rock Beach. If you like a cheeky shortcut when out walking, Killarney Heights is home to quite a few.
You know you’ve gained true local status when you’ve explored them all and are familiar with where each one leads.
Killarney Heights hosts its own shopping precinct featuring restaurants, speciality stores, a green grocer and professional office suites.

There are two great State schools in Killarney Heights and much more around the area.
Killarney Heights Primary School is situated across the road from Killarney Heights Oval, and the highly rated Killarney Heights High School is next to the oval. A preschool is also nearby.
Both Killarney Heights Primary School and Killarney Heights High feature a strong French presence. Killarney Heights Primary School offers a unique English – French Bilingual Program, which has led to many French- speaking parents (as well as parents interested in languages education for their children) moving to the area.
