Upmarket Killarney proudly wears the crown of having been the site of the first shopping centre in Johannesburg, in a time when local butchers still wrapped customer’s meat orders in brown paper and string. The suburb has beautiful examples of art deco 1930s-style buildings now occupied mostly by cosmopolitan, young and successful urban dwellers.
Apart from the large shopping mall, the residential high rise apartments and gated communities are interspersed with large commercial enterprises and a prestigious country club.
The national highway runs directly through Killarney and the suburb is bordered to the south by The Wilds, a 16ha nature reserve containing indigenous plants growing up against a koppie (small hill).
