    A bustling suburb and a family-friendly nest

    Located 5 km north of Sydney's central business district, Crows Nest is known for its unassuming charm and its proximity to all the attractions of the big city. Originally part of a 524-acre land grant made to Edward Wollstonecraft in 1821, the town still features the Wollstonecraft estate, built in the 19th century and now a school featuring the gates of the Crows Nest House. Crows Nest vacation rentals are a prime jumping-off point for your visit to the community's picturesque parks, its historic building, and its vibrant commercial district full of shops and restaurants.

    Easygoing activities that make a vacation feel like home

    Strolling the picturesque streets, shopping, dining and picnicking in local green spaces are the most popular ways to while away the hours in Crows Nest. You'll find unique shops on the city's main street, and there's a market on the village green every month, complete with children's entertainment and a barbecue. The Crows Nest Festival occurs in October every year and adds to the area's reputation as a cool place for up-and-comers but still a friendly place for families, travellers and kids. Don't be surprised if strangers say "hello" in the streets. It's the Crows Nest way.

    You had no idea a burial ground could be this pretty

    The history buffs in your party will want to stop by Sexton's Cottage Museum. Once used for the rather grim purpose of laying out bodies prior to burial, it's now a cheery local history museum. It's set in – okay, this is going to sound grim again – St. Thomas Rest Park, the first burial ground established on Sydney's north shore. Contrary to its rather death-centric origins, the park is a beautiful green space featuring an unusual pyramid-shaped tomb, and picturesque walkways and shade trees.

    The view from the Crows Nest: mild weather all around

    The humid subtropical climate of Crows Nest offers warm summers, cool winters, tons of sunshine and moderate rainfall throughout the year. There's actually less rain during winter and spring, the Sydney area's traditional low season, so you'll likely find Crows Nest vacation rentals at a bargain, plus enjoy extra sunny days and more elbow room at the local cafes. Low winter temps are in the teens, and the warmest summer days top out at around the mid-20s. In short, Crows Nest isn't a bad place to visit no matter when you manage to get there.

    You'll spot plenty of feathered friends from the Crows Nest

    Crows Nest is perhaps a bit too small and adorable to accommodate large parklands or nature preserves, but nearby is Lane Cove National Park, a short drive from the suburb and from Sydney's city centre. This bushland escape is set on either side of the Lane Cove River, and there are plenty of trails for walking and biking. You can explore the woods, row a boat along the river, listen for the laughing call of the kookaburra or train your binoculars on the colourful lorikeets flapping overhead.
