Hornsby

Hornsby is a suburb in Sydney’s Upper North Shore. It is just 25 kilometres from the CBD and serves as the administrative centre of the Hornsby Shire.

The name was inspired by Samuel Henry Horne, a former convict who later became a constable and played a crucial role in the region’s growth.

His efforts gave Horne land grants, which he named Hornsby Place. It is also important to mention that the suburb is home to many aboriginal sites.

One thing that sets Hornsby apart is the presence of numerous natural parks and gardens, which make for an exciting place to visit. Start by exploring the Ginger Meggs Park located on Valley Road. The park is named in honour of Ginger Meggs, a popular character created for a comic series. Since the cartoon’s creator, James C. Bancks, spent a good chunk of his time at the park in his formative years, it only makes sense that the park was named after one of his characters.

Interestingly, a creek close to the park is today known as Jimmy Bancks Creek. This secret garden is an idyllic family destination with a playground and grassy sections to sit and unwind.

Willow Park is one of Hornsby’s busiest parks and a popular choice for those with kids. With many different options for play equipment, the kids will not be in a hurry to leave. This park features swings, slides, a playground, and a pretend shop!

Alternatively, head to Hornsby Aquatic and Leisure Centre and swim at its state-of-the-art swimming pools. For convenience, a gym, cafe, and underground parking are also on site. Love nature’s tranquillity? You will love the serene Lisgar Gardens and the Edgeworth David Garden.

For those who want to enjoy local vibes, Hornsby does not disappoint because it is home to diverse communities that add to its flair and flamboyance.
