Mona Vale is a beachside suburb in the Northern Beaches district of Sydney, Australia.

It is a well catered for small town with three supermarkets (including Woolworths, Coles and Aldi), a number of small malls and a lot of places to eat, including the best chicken burgers and chips in the area at the Aces shop, next to St. George, on Bungan Street.

On the corner of Pittwater Road and Barrenjoey Road there is a nice park and a public library.

Get in[edit]

Sydney's train network does not extend to the Northern Beaches, meaning the only public transport available to Mona Vale is by bus. Fortunately, Mona Vale is well served and is the main bus hub on the Northern Beaches; all limited stops (L) and express (E) buses to and from the city stop here.

Citybound buses use numbers between 184 and 190, the most frequent being the L90 from Palm Beach and the fastest in peak hour being the express buses such as the E86 (beginning at Church Point), E87 (Newport) or E88 (Avalon). The slow 155 bus goes to Manly via Warriewood, giving great views of Warriewood beach along the way. The L60 in peak hour goes from Mona Vale to Chatswood.

See[edit][add listing]

Mona Vale has a long golden sandy beach with good surfing and swimming, with car parking near the beach. The surf can be rougher than at nearby Warriewood, which is more sheltered. The beach has has flagged areas with lifesaver patrols through the summer. Cliffs at the southern end make access between Warriewood Beach and Mona Vale Beach difficult for the disabled and those with children.

A 10-minute drive west of Mona Vale along Mona Vale Road takes you to the Bahá'í House of Worship , one of only seven such buildings in the world.

  • Mona Vale Hotel: (The best spot in Mona Vale to be abused by patrons & molested in the street - A MUST SEE!) Good food, nice staff, but the management is poor and rude.
