Killara is an Aboriginal word meaning permanent or always there. The name of the suburb was chosen when the railway line opened in 1899. James George Edwards was a representative of the people who requested a station be built here. The suburb was established as a 'Gentlemen's suburb', designed so that there would be no commercial ventures in the area. For this reason, the suburb has very few shops in the original development.

Killara railway station is on the North Shore Line of the City Rail network. The Pacific Highway is the main road through Killara. Churches in the suburb comprise St Martin's Anglican Church, and Killara Uniting Church on Karranga Avenue.

The Swain Gardens were donated to Ku-ring-gai Council by Mr Swain, a Sydney bookseller, in the 1920s, and are today maintained by the council and volunteers. The gardens have been listed by the National Trust of Australia.

Commercial developments are located along the length of the Pacific Highway, including the Greengate Hotel. A small group of shops are located on Marian Street, close to Killara railway station;the Marian Street Theatre is located opposite.

The majority of residential properties are built in the Federation and Californian Bungalow styles, although the suburb includes many other styles.

The Harry and Penelope Seidler House at 13 Kalang Avenue was designed by Harry and Penelope Seidler. The 1960s-era modern-design home, constructed with reinforced masonry walls, concrete floors and roof, rubble-stone retaining walls and fireplace, won the Wilkinson Award in 1967.
