According to a report from, Allambie Heights, located on Sydney’s northern beaches, has topped the list as the most in demand suburb in Australia. It has a median price of $1.5 million for all dwelling types in the area.

This was followed by Melbourne’s Middle ParkMiddle Park, QLD Middle Park, VIC, which holds a median price of $1.98 million, and Adelaide’s Crafers, which holds a median price of $732,500.

Next up was another Sydney northern beaches suburb, Narraweena, which currently has a median price of $1.3 million, followed by Birchgrove, located in Sydney’s inner-west, recording a median price of $1.6 million.

Why are buyers flocking? 

Commenting on the results, chief economist of Nerida Conisbee said the two northern beaches suburbs that made the list are particularly sought-after by younger buyers.

“Allambie Heights and Narraweena are more affordable northern beaches suburbs,” Ms Conisbee said.

“If you look at somewhere like ManlyManly, NSW Manly, QLD – where the median price is nearly $3 million – Allambie Heights and Narraweena aren’t that near the water, but they aren’t too far away, so comparatively they are more affordable.”
