North Sydney

North Sydney is a suburb located on the Lower North Shore of Sydney, three kilometres from the CBD. The suburb serves as the administrative centre in the local government area and is managed by the North Sydney Council.

The suburb’s past is steeped in the Aboriginal culture, where locals referred to it as “warung”, meaning ‘the other side’.

On their arrival, European settlers gave the region the name Hunterhill. This was years before the amazing transformation that the area underwent in its urbanisation, giving rise to a commercial hub that represents advanced technology development in the city.

What’s surprising, however, is that unlike many of the city’s suburbs, North Sydney has minimal shopping amenities, with very few stores trading on Sundays. The central shopping mall is Greenwood Plaza, which lies close to the North Sydney Station. Other places to go shopping include Berry Square, Coles, and Aldi.

It makes up for what North Sydney lacks in shopping malls with its beautiful attractions. For instance, the McKay Reserve and Walking Track is a fun trail whose location near the beach makes it ideal for nature enthusiasts. Take on the grand stairway and enjoy marvellous beach views, or go to the beach with kids’ activities. This walk is steep in some sections, so interested visitors must be moderately fit to take it on.

For families, nothing beats the Hallstrom Park Playground and Incinerator Art Space and Cafe. This venue is a three-in-one destination that offers food, vibrant art pieces, and activities for the kids. It is practically impossible to visit the cafe without wandering off to the art space or gallery.

Alternatively, pack up for a picnic and enjoy the greenery at Tunks Hill Picnic Area, located within Lane Cove National Park. Illoura Picnic Area will also be worthwhile as it has ample space for the kids to expend energy.

Other notable attractions in North Sydney include Taronga Zoo, the Sydney Institute of Marine Science Discovery Centre, and Sirius Cove. To explore and get the most out of North Sydney, remember to carry a sense of awe and adventure!
