Bangor Release

Track 1 – Layout

Nestled on the edge of Menai, Bangor is a neat suburb with surrounding waterways including the Woronora River. The suburb is predominately  residential consisting of large freestanding homes with carefully manicured gardens and lovely tree lined streets. Measuring only 4.1km squared, the Bangor shopping centre and adjoining Bangor Tavern certainly feels like the heart of this friendly suburb.

Track 2 – Attractions 

The drive to Bangor is scenic as you travel over the grand Georges River. Once in Bangor, there is not an abundance of attractions, but it is a picturesque place to visit nonetheless. There are opportunities to explore surrounding pockets of bushland and local creeks. We took the walking track to Still Creek, easily accessible from the road.

We found an unexpected attraction within the Bangor Shopping Centre. The Bangor Pharmacy houses a substantial collection of historical artefacts from pharmacies of a bygone era. Definitely worth checking out.

Track 3 – Shopping

The Bangor Shopping Centre appears to be your one and only shopping destination in Bangor. It’s here that you will find shops to suit your everyday needs including a grocery store, post office, bakery, pharmacy, takeaway chicken and pizza shop and newsagency. Although we didn’t make a stop at the ‘Much More than Coffee’ cafe, it seemed unique as it was both a coffee shop and gift store.

Track 4 – Food

After exploring the suburb, the obvious choice for lunch was Bangor Tavern. Bangor Tavern has daily lunch specials (12pm to 4pm) as well their regular menu. We each opted for a lunch special (Salt and Pepper Prawn Skewers & Grilled Barramundi Fillet) and found the portions generous, fresh tasting and flavoursome, and the presentation appealing. We would most definitely recommend you visit for a meal or cold beverage.

The Greatest Hit of Bangor
