St Leonards: A Sydney Suburb Guide

St Leonards is located on Sydney’s Lower North Shore, only 3 stops on the train from Sydney CBD which makes it a very appealing suburb to live in.

With access to excellent local amenities including the Royal North Shore Hospital and The Royal North Shore Hospital School as well as its proximity to local shopping centres in Sydney’s CBD and Chatswood, St Leonard’s is an enviable location.
