Bondi Heights

Waverley is an established residential area. The Bondi Heights (formerly Penkivil) Precinct is bounded by Old South Head Road, Council Street, Birrell Street, Watson St and Wellington Street. Please note boundary lines run through the middle of the street. Bondi Heights Precinct is part of Waverley Ward.

Waverley is named after an early property in the area, which was named after Sir Walter Scott's 'Waverley Novels'

Settlement of the area dates from the 1820s. Population was minimal until the 1860s when the village of Charing Cross was established. Gradual growth took place from the late 1800s into the early 1900s, aided by the opening of the tram line from Darlinghurst in 1881. Expansion continued during the post-war years. The population has increased slightly since the early 1990s, a result of new dwellings being added to the area.

Major features of the area include Waverley Park, Thomas Hogan Reserve, Dickson Park and Waverley Reservoir.
