Fast Facts

For a more in depth analysis click here 

The name 'Belrose' is said to be derived from the combination of two plant names the Christmas Bell and the Bush Rose which were predominant in the area. Belrose is only 19km from the City centre and 12km to Manly Beach.
Belrose is how suburban life should be - small enough to have a tight-knit sense of community, yet full of wide open spaces for generously-sized family homes. This is a lovely quiet suburb where people take pride in their gardens.
Houses in Belrose were designed with families in mind, built from the 1960’s onwards, with large blocks & backyards and also lots of parks & playgrounds. The local Belrose Hotel is geared towards families & tradies and there is also the Belrose Bowling Club for the young at heart.
The community is well catered for with Glenaeon Retirement Village and also Belrose Country Club. These facilities account for the medium to high density figures in our fast facts.
The Glen Street Theatre is a cultural hub offering entertainment for all ages in its 400 seat auditorium. With plays, music and cabaret there is entertainment all year round. Glen Street Theatre (pictured below) has recently completed a seven million dollar upgrade including renovations to the foyer & landscaping as well as the new library and cafe.


The local shopping centre known as Glenrose has recently been completed and has Woolworths and Aldi as well as a specialist butcher, seafood, baker & chicken shop. There are a great variety of restaurants also at Glenrose.
