Hidden Sydney: Under the Green

Roseville is a suburb hidden under greenery 12km north of the Sydney CBD. Filled with old federation houses shrouded by foliage, this suburb is filled almost completely with low density houses, and yet it is situated directly on a train line.

There can’t be too many places in the world like Roseville. Roseville is filled with spawning mansions walking distance from the train station hidden in the vegetation. Its atmosphere is quiet, relaxed and feels almost like a national park.

If you want to go at a slow place, and leave the hustle and bustle of the city to escape to lush parks and maybe catch a film in the old art deco movie cinema, them you should add Roseville to your ‘to explore’ list

Roseville feels a world away from the Sydney CBD, it even feels a world away from Chatswood the next station down the line.
